Yes, a post on how good we are :)

It's not every day you get to do a post based on how good something is that you've spent a lot of time and energy on, so I should really cherish the moment... okay, now that the moment's gone, I'd like to thank Josh from Izunotravel.com for the really in depth review he's done of travel blogging systems. For those of you familiar with Travellerspoint blogs it might come as a shock, but there really are other sites out there trying to do the same thing! We don't know why they try either, but hey...
Joking aside, it's great to see a blogger/reviewer really go into the kind of detail Josh has done when researching 10 different sites that offer travel blogging - view the review here. And this was done independently too I should add; the first I ever heard about it was an email from Josh letting us know we had 'won' We went up against some pretty big names, including a few sites that do nothing but travel blogging and I'm really proud to say that Travellerspoint came out number 1 overall. We were considered best in category in three different categories out of 15, although not all 15 categories actually had a 'best of category' (only 7 did). My favourite line is this one:
"Map features are better than on Google"
There's a lot to take away from the review, including some (small) points of improvement for Travellerspoint which is also very welcome. If you'd like to see the comparison chart (flash), the direct link is http://www.izunotravel.com/Customs/traveljournalreview.html
And as always, any ideas/suggestions on how we can keep on making the travel blogging system better are welcome!!
