I recently read an article about how bloggers are changing the travel industry for the better. Many of us who write about travel, like to express our opinion on places we have visited Sometimes I review hotels I have stayed in and give my personal opinion about my experience in that particular hotel. This might seem something insignificant as it is just my personal opinion, yet the article mentions that nowadays executives from major hotel chains and other travel related business are paying more attention to what bloggers say about their business.
In my case, although I haven had any major issue that has been resolved thanks to an entry in my blog, I have received a couple of emails from large companies asking me to correct something I wrote about them in one of my blog entries. If I was wrong about what I wrote, I do correct the entry and post the right information.
For me, this blog is more about sharing my passion for traveling than trying to fix the industry, but I do not mind giving people advice on how to solve issues they might encountered on a hotel or other places.
For most of us, traveling is a pleasure and our opinion should count on how the travel industry conduct its business, after all they wouldn’t be here if it wouldn’t for all of us who love to travel.
