Simply Amazed!

We are simply AMAZED at the quality and quantity of travel information that our new Travel Daily is serving up every day.

The amazement comes from the fact that we don't really do all that much! With a daily, the technology does all the work. As we understand it, guided by some broad topics we select, our tweets are mined, as well as those of who we follow, and follow us and the top relevant content is served up.

After the daily is ready, we can go in and edit the content, deleting anything that's not suitable (maybe 10%) - and choosing which article in each topic area should be the headline. Super easy - and it's updated live as you do it! (BTW, we connect using Twitter to connect, but believe you can use Facebook, if you prefer).

It's really quite remarkable.

Just take a look at some of what's contained in the Leisure section of today's issue:
In fact, about 50 more. Yes, 60ish solid, informative, fresh, relevant travel links, on this page alone, just today!  The rest of our pages have a travel theme to them - check out the Stories section for another rich treasure trove of travel stories...

Isn't the variety stunning? The best part is that it's easy to see who sourced and authored each one, so you can follow them on Twitter, or head to the relevant blog/website, to mine more of the content that interests you.So, a publication like this isn't about us 'collecting' news; it's about providing a springboard to you, to find more of the content that you value.
