Travel Blogs with Craig and Robert
I am happy to know Craig and Robert.
Craig in Trinidadhttp://www.travelvice.com
Robert in Brazil, I think.http://www.prudenttravel.comhttp://www.prudenttravel.com/blogger.htm
I also have a friend Bob.http://robertstravels.blogspot.com
These three are traveling, actually on the road, blogging and making noise, however very difficult for me to follow because of the Atom or RSS feeds.
I really need some notifications in my email box and the content, not a link to the site, I will never click on it, I only have 1 hour per day in the internet cafe. Reading websites online is a big problem.
I am working on an idea of how to use my HoboBlogs.com sites so person that wish could have free hosting of their travel blogs, not must a normal blog, a person that is out on at least a six month journey. There is also the possibility I contribute to their site by helping them with a fee of 50 cents for a normal post and 1.00 dollar for one with a photo.
It would be easy for me to host them on my site and share the travel stories. One problem is most people start and never proceed, then never follow through and complete what they started. I am sure many person on the planet, that have traveled could see that if they earned 5 dollars per day they could travel the planet, or at least it would help. I lived for many years on less than 10 dollars per day and visited many countries, mostly traveling by land.
It is an idea, trying to figure out how to help, I would like to give back what was given to me, many person have donated, helped, clicked, read, and done many things to help me continue to travel. I am working through this idea, hoping to figure out a strategy that would help the travelers of the planet to fund a trip.
It is impossible to just donate to them, there is a world of travelers out there who want some free money. I do think I could donate some web space, some technology, some techie help to those who are not so technical minded.
Craig and Robert are good techies, Robert is more or less understanding the idea.
There is a need though for person to be rewarded for the creation of content, I am not happy that many sites want you to post content on their site, categorize it, make money off the person posting and not even say,
Hey, this is not a service for you as much as a great way for me to make money.
Persons posting on Hoboblogs.com would help to spread the Hobo word, then in a roundabout way help the site and me to grow and prosper, I would benefit. To make them pay seems ludicrous, to offer for free sounds like a good idea. I am thinking that maybe I could charge a 25 dollar set up fee that they would receive back after maybe 50 post and then I would not lose time setting them up with a blog.
Time is a short, life is short, however the world has a dream of doing many things, many start and never go further than a start. Just some thoughts on how to reproduce hobos. heheheh
I suppose the girl in the Hostel last night from England with he Parents that immigrated from Sr Lanka would work also, I was doing my best to chat... Nice girl, 19 months of travel and I think she has gone to more than me, easy to do, I am lazy.
