Dear Inca-Trailblazer,
You want the honest answer?? (i'm assuming a yes...) It's boring. I could elaborate on that... Your photos are ok though.
Sorry to be so blunt.

Inca-Trailblazer-- I am new to writing blogs myself, but I wanted to give you my impressions. You have good 'bones' on your site (good pics, details), but not enough emotion in my opinion. As it is, I know exactly what you did every day but not how it made you feel or what your impressions/random musings were. Otherwise you are doing fine, you just need to find your own voice so it is clear that your blogs couldn't have been written by anyone other than you. Hope that helps!
JA

p.s. turnabout is fair play so if you want to critique my blogs- feel free! I am still trying to develop my blog writing style (I'm used to writing technical papers), but I wouldn't mind some commentary.

Just probably a bit too much like a shopping list 😊

Though I am assuming your first language isnt english.. so you are doing a good job... I couldn't do mine in another language! The Sushi Cowboy had it right earlier about just describing an event, not everything like train timetables etc.

I still stuggle with this myself. I want to tell everything in order, I also like my photos to go in order, so this is a pain, if the first photo isnt particularly great - as it ends up being the one shown big in the previews.. so it even bothers me that my photos are out of order!! ha ha I think I have issues!

maybe you could still do them the same, then try making just one blog - a descriptive humourous version of a particular event. I do find this hard too... some bloggers are lucky enough to attract unusual, funny/weird things to them while travelling... I am married with 3 kids... so nothing to weird.. as we arent travelling anywhere too exotic!

keep it up

I liked this photo - Peruvian and Tahuantinsuyo Flags. The pics of the animals are quite interesting too.

This is a good idea for discussion. Would appreciate any comments on my blog too... http://www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/eims/ (haven't written the text for a few on the current page but the rest are all done - so lazy!!)
