It’s Here! The 2010 Izuno Travel Journal Review

2010 Izuno Travel Journal review

So after two years and numerous comments (that I still get) I have revamped the Travel Journal Review for 2010.  This has been one of my most popular posts, so I sat down and completed the task.  There are a total of 26 online travel journal/travel blog sites that I evaluated and ranked in my favorite order.  Based on numerous categories hopefully this will help you decide which online journal you wish to use for yourself.  Be assured I do not claim that this is 100% accurate or perfect.  I spent 8 days registering, evaluating, and ranking these sites, and everything was starting to look like the same toward the end.  Nevertheless, in order to be as accurate as possible, if you feel something is entirely wrong just send me an email (info@izunodesign.com).  You can read more about the sites and ranking by clicking on the salmon colored “i” circle.

    Awesome idea! Nice system you have in place. I like it. Back when I started out I used Travelpod and it looks like they’re still a great choice which is fun to see.

  2. Jemima Says:

    That’s a fantastic list, and a great idea too. Good to see some of my favourites high up the list.

    I like the list. But it seems a bit subjective, with a quite strong focus on ‘looks’.

    Also, I get an error on the MapVivo, can’t do anything there :(

    Maybe you could write what you where looking for in the travelblog sites? That would probably explain the listing better.

  4. Travel blogr Says:

    Hey guys, great article and thanks for reviewing my new site…It’s #24 on your list.

    I was wondering if I could get some feedback from you on what you experienced when you visited the site, as I noticed a lot of white squares on your chart.

    If you could send me an email and let me know your experience it would be greatly appreciated and would help in fixing any problems you might have encountered.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Hi – brilliant review, just what I was looking for as there is just too much choice out there so picking my journal site (I don’t like the word ‘blog’ either) for the next 12mths feels overwhelming.

    You have helped me get things down to a shortlist and I’ll have a look into them in more detail now.

    One question: do you know if there are any sites out there that will automatically pull GPS info from photos and map them as I upload them? Now wouldn’t that be cool?!

    Love the site, keep up the ethos!
