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?
