Question for Readers: What Do You Like to Read in Blogs?

Instead of answering reader questions, I’m asking questions of readers this week.

Personally, I like reading trip reports. This is a large part of the reason about half the posts on my blog are trip reports. I find trip reports helpful from a logistics perspective (e.g. are there ample food options that will appeal to me on this flight? do the lounges have good showers?), and there’s also something fun about living vicariously through the aspirational experiences of others (at least to an extent). On the other hand, I have been consciously trying not to let other people’s trip reports limit my own experiences, if that makes sense.

Beyond trip reports, I’m always interested in new redemption tips or award availability trends or manufactured spending techniques, provided that they’re applicable to my desired travel habits. This seems harder and harder to find just because I’m already intimately familiar with almost everything that is applicable to my desired travel habits.

Finally, I’m always on the lookout for voices that either challenge how I view things or else provide a voice for things that have been bouncing around in the back of my mind but I haven’t yet articulated.

What do you like to read about in points/miles blogs? Do you have favorite bloggers that you think should get more love?

    I can tell you what I DON’T like: endless credit card plugs.

    Not saying you do, but there are an abundance of BA blogs that post incessantly about the same credit card offers over and over (cough, cough, Gary).

    I think this is a great question. I’m always trying to get in the head of my reader and see what they want to read. I know personally, for me, I’m like you. I LOVE trip reports. Whenever we go on trips (from here on out), pictures pictures pictures are the sole focus.
