When the World Wide Web became widely available, it made a huge difference to how we live. No longer do we need to go to a library for information, for example, as instead we now have all the information we could possibly need at our fingertips. It is not just information that the internet brings us of course as it also brings us insights into how other people live their lives and see the world. Blogging in particular is one popular way of taking advantage of the internet and using it to let the world know about your thoughts and experiences.
An Attentive Audience.
Blogger Andrew Tomlinson runs a blog on his life and experiences in London, and finds that he has a wide audience from people from all over the world. As one of the world’s prime tourist destinations, many people search the internet for information on London and blogs such as Andrews are often just what they are looking for.
While commercial sites and tourism companies tend to provide information on the tourist spots that are likely to make them a profit, an independent blog such as Andrew’s will not have profit in mind but instead offer impartial opinions and experiences. Such a blog can help visitors to the capital, and some residents, to find hidden gems that would likely have been missed otherwise.
Telling Some Truths.
As a resident of the city, Andrew has noticed how many tourists are treated like Sheeple as they are herded from one place to another, with barely enough time to take in what is around them. As somebody that knows the city well though he is well aware that there are better ways to enjoy the city and they are often considerably cheaper than those laid on by tour guides.
Andrew has noticed how some tour organisers appear to be somewhat extortionate in their prices when compared to what they actually offer for the money. Maybe by educating visitors on how other, more reasonable, prices are available the tour companies might be pressured into offering more reasonable prices themselves.
