We're looking for some testimonials that we can use on our marketing material. If you enjoy travelblog, find it easy to use, and would recommend it to others - we'd love to hear from you.

If you could write a few sentences about how travelblog has been useful to you we'll use it in the following ways.

1) We'll attribute the quote to your travelblog account (on travelblog with a link, offline with the www.mytb.org short link)

2) We won't take your testimonial out of context - all of the post will be used or none of it - so short and sweet is best for us 😊

3) Could you please note your nationality - we want to show that we have a varied and diverse membership.

We reserve the right to not include certain posts and if you respond to this post we'll assume that you are happy for us to use the response for testimonial purposes.

Thanks for your help with this.

Added - if you'd rather send a testimonial via email - Contact Us - note your blogger nickname and put "Testimonial" as the subject.

I'll get the ball rolling on this one!

Travelblog enhances the travelling experience; both when on the road as a wonderful way of documenting your trip and, more importantly, when not, as a valuable tool for dreaming, planning or just simply reminiscing.

I'm a Britisher by the way!

We started using TraveBlog.org as a way to share our experiences with our friends and family back home, and it's progressed from a journal of our entries with some pictures to a project for us. We're enjoying catalouging our adventures, and find the TravelBlog.org website easy to use. The Administrators and Moderators of the site have also been extremlly helpful, as well as the users posting in the forums.

Overall, TravelBlog is an amazing site, very helpful for users of all kinds. The versatility of the site has made blogging and use of the forums easy for everyone!

and we are from Vancouver Canada!! 😊 Hope this helps! Reply to this

I started using TravelBlog initially to chronicle my travels with friends and family, many of whom invariably ask me where we went, what we ate, what we did, what we saw. Coming up with the journals with matching pictures meant less questions ;-) Over time, they expected a TravelBlog corresponding to each trip! We have since catalogued and compiled some into neat notebooks for each to treasure and fondly remember. TravelBlog made it so easy for us to remember our bonding moments, as well as a planning tool for our future trips.

Of late, I have started blogging about places and food to try in my very homeland, the Philippines! Reply to this

Speaking of compiling journals, etc, I'm really excited about the blog to book option avaliable! We plan on doing something like this with our blogs at some point in the future!! Reply to this

When my husband was assigned an expat position in Poland, I began to look into ways to keep in touch with people back home in the U.S. Even though I was new to the world of blogging, TravelBlog instantly became not only our main way to share experiences and photos from all the places we visited, but we use it as a tool for researching the next destination. Now it serves as a way for us to remember our life in Europe! Thanks TravelBlog! Reply to this

Travelblog inspires, entertains and educates. It contains a wealth of information, amazing photographs and inspirational stories from real life experience of people who travelled all over the world. With an open mind, one can appreciate and learn a lot about the world we live in through this website.

Having travelled extensively without the internet in the past and then again with it as a means of communication family and friends worried when they hadn't heard from us via email. It was a real god send when we were introduced to Travel Blog by fellow travellers as it meant we could update all on our travels/experiences (with pictures) without having to send long repetative emails). Now we use it as a travel diary for ourselves and also to research future trips! A brilliant tool that we find more useful than any guide book or travel agent! Reply to this

My initial aim with using a blog to document our travels was to get my Mum to use the internet... It then became a method to allow friends and family to know where we are, where we've been and what we've been up to.

Since then travelblog for me has become so much more... I'm part of a much wider community where I can share experiences, photos, knowledge and also be inspired by what the world has to offer through other people using the site.

Since becoming a father, I've now realised it will also be an amazing record in the early life and travels with my children and hopefully when they're older inspire them to get out there and discover for themselves the richness and diversity in this small planet of ours. I look forward to reading their Travelblogs....

Our son used travelblog.org to keep us and his friends informed of his travel to Nepal and India in 2009. It's a great resource. Reply to this

I've been using TravelBlog as a way to not only share picture with friends around the world, but also as a virtual scrapbook for myself. Whenever I get itchy feet, I look back at some of the places I've been and start planning my next trip.

I also enjoy reading the stories from some of the other intrpid travellers on this site. A wealth of information is available, and there are some excellent travel writers to be found here.

The easy formatting options of Travelblog helped us create a stylish-looking blog with little to no knowledge of web editing. Updating our blog on the road became a unique way for us to keep in touch and share photos with family back home, but it's the knowledge and willingness of other Travelblog members to share their experiences that keeps us coming back to this site time and again even when we're home. What an invaluable travel resource!

Wow. It's been just over 4 years that we've been using Travelblog. From our very first blog until now, Travelblog has become a part of us. A huge part! Travelling has become that much more fun since we can share it with so many. We constantly follow other journals too. Helps to plan our trips!
It is one of the best things that has happened to our travels.

I agree with all of the above . As a solo traveller I find that I am using the blog as a way of reflecting on the things I am seeing and doing when I travel . It is pleasant to sit in a cool internet cafe during the heat of the day or in the evening when I just want to sit and try to make sense of or internalize what has been happening . My friends and family seem to enjoy what I write .
I too am a Canadian .

As a member of other travel forums, I always redirect people to Travelblog.org, as a source of up to date, honest information. For my first trip to Thailand in 2008 I became addicted to Travelblog and all the valuable information it had and how quickly my answers and queries were answered. Over 100 blogs later I consider it my hobby and feel it's a special way of recording my little adventures. Explore. Dream. Discover.

We started using travelblog to plan our trip and get up to date information on the places we planned to visit. It was super easy to make it look like we knew what we were doing which is why we choose this blog for our RTW trip with the intention of keeping our family, friends and anyone else who cared to read about us up to date with what we'd been up to in words and oh so many pictures!

Since joining we've made friends, learnt heaps about places we've been and places we plan to go. Even after our (latest!) trip has been & gone we check it constantly to see what's going on in the lives of those we follow and get inspiration for more places to add to the neverending list..

Travelblog has been my family and friend's link with me since I began travelling and teaching 5 years ago. It has enabled me to share pictures from Argentina, Azerbaijan, Syria and Tunisa with everyone I know, and in the process I feel I've educated them all as well as teh occasional casual browser. I've also made friends through Travelblog thanks to its messaging system which has proved invaluable.

Travelblog is by far the easiest and most user-friendly blog site we've ever used. So much so that we're not able to find a "non-travel" blog site that we want to use for our day-to-day stuff. The support is also fantastic. Good job guys, and thank you for creating a medium for us to save our treasured memories,
