blogs & travel

I couldn’t think of a better first post than a reference to an article by Jane L. Levere in the New York Times on January 29th entitled, Blogs Becoming Regular Reading for Business Travelers.

In addition to mentioning some of the more well-read sites for business travelers including BoardingArea.com, a portal a directory to blogs that address issues of interest to business travelers, Levere includes some interesting statistics…

According to Forrester Research, in the second quarter of 2007, 21 percent of business travelers who use the Internet read blogs, not just ones about business travel, but also those involving sports, business, finance and other topics. “This indicates that organizing a portal for business travel blogs, especially with good content, means the site [BoardingArea.com] has potential,” said Henry H. Harteveldt, travel analyst for Forrester, a research firm.
