In this episode we first talk about Rick leaving California after having lived there his whole life. He and his family are moving to Utah. Before two interesting interviews from TBEX Spain, he tells us how that happened.
Then we speak to Fuse who comes from a background of teaching SEO to photographers as she has been a photographer for a decade. Now she’s the first and (according to Rick) only TBEX volunteer helping out with photography and so much more.
We also have an interesting conversation with Alastair McKenzie. He has been a travel journalist/editor since 1989, originally in local, then national radio before moving online just before the millennium. He’s been an active member of the travel blogger & social media community since it started, a regular speaker at social media travel conferences, and write about social travel. He’s also a member of the Captivate Digital Media collective, and the British Guild of Travel Writers.
His blog MechTraveller.com is a niche blog about geeky travel, attractions, history, and transport. At this conference he moderated a keynote panel on the big stage and in this episode of Travel Matters he shares his thoughts on the travel media industry – and the difference between traditional media and travel blogging.
