Looking Back

Overall I am proud of the way my travel blog turned out.  My blog gives me a jumping off point for my future travels and I really did enjoy researching my topics.  I wish I had more time to delve into each place a little further, but as I noticed in the beginning, my posts were taking a lot of time to research.  I had to modify my approach and start small.

I am torn between which posts were my best.  I enjoyed advocate blogging because it allowed me to really explore the places I was posting about, yet I was thankful for filter/connector posts because the time it took to compile information was drastically shorter.

The challenges I faced was mostly in research.  For example, I began to research Greece and very quickly had a list of places and links so long I became overwhelmed and scrapped the idea.  This is when I decided that when writing about a place I should probably narrow down locations.  This is why I blogged about Key Largo instead of the Florida Keys.

Other than research, I am a bit insecure in my writing.  Having very little feedback left me wondering if there were things I could do better to improve my blog overall.

As far as next time goes, I hope to maintain this blog and continue to grow the list of places I want to travel to.  Eventually I would like to have my blog become more public (scary).  It would be nice to have comment from readers sharing their experiences and making the must see list more interactive.  I am pretty shy when it comes to my writing so that will prove to be a big step.
