I know you think The Travelin’ Man must’ve run aground and got stranded on some deserted isle out in the Swedish archipelago. Not so! We just had to let the wheels cool off a little bit.
Just wanted to check in and say hi, and to let you know we are going on a trip to Uppsala this weekend. Most of you are thinking, Uppsala? Where the hell is that? Well, stay tuned and I’ll tell you all about it on my next post!
Stay safe, see ya out there!
Just wanted to send you a quick note about some recent changes to the blog. The list of “Tours” under Stockholm was getting too long, so I broke out all the boat rides and cruises and gave them their own category (still under Stockholm).
I also moved the article about Fjäderholmarna Island under the “Boat Rides and Cruises” list. But here’s the great news, when I moved that article, it occurred to me the article was one of my fisrt and wasn’t really up to the high standards of The Travelin’ Man! So I have completely gutted it and restructured it, and I added reviews of the restaurants, including the ones we went to with Melissa and Brandi while they were here, and there are a ton of new pics, so please give it a read and see what you think. Click here to see it now.
THANKS ALL and have a great day!
Wow can you believe it’s already August? And what a busy month we had on the blog in July! I posted a whopping 14 articles last month! AND restructured the menu interface AND added a Stockholm index, wow!
And I still have so much planned. I am writing this update while on the train to Copenhagen, which will get added to the blog. We also did a three hour Segway Tour with our friend Melissa, who is visiting from the US, and I am still documenting Amsterdam. But what I really want you to know is that The Travelin’ Man is extending his reach; I just got my Facebook page up and linked to the blog, and I’m working on getting more social apps up very soon.
So please do me a huge favor and accept the friend invite from the The Travelin’ Man when it comes through. My plan is to make more personal posts on that and still do the formal updates on the blog. I also plan to do event and restaurant reviews from The Travelin’ Man’s Facebook identity. So anything you can do to spread the word about all this is a great help! And also feel free to comment and whatever on the new Facebook when it comes through.
Thanks again for all your support so far and, see ya out there!
Hello out there beta testers! Firstly, thank you all for your continued support and for all the help and suggestions.
This is an attempt for me to set up a way to communicate to members without having to actually “publish” a story.
So if you get this, it means I was successful! The other thing I wanted to tell you was that there is soooooo much content coming in now for Stockholm that it has made me rethink the implementation a little to make it easier to access. I’m going to be adding a new button called “Stockholm“. It will be next to the “Destinations” button at the very top level.
Once it’s all done, the Stockholm button will cascade down with grouped articles and a clickable index to better navigate through them. But I don’t have a development area and cannot implement it in one step.
So if you are ticking around on the site, please be aware it is undergoing a bit of remodeling and the Stockholm areas may behave a bit oddly until I’m done.
If all goes well for the newsletter stuff, there will be a very subtle link at the far bottom of the page called “Newsletters ” where hopefully all the newsletters get published in case our non-members browsing the page want to see what’s going on.
And I am backlogged with a ton of material (thanks Brandi). So as soon as I get this restructuring done, brace yourself for a bunch of new and exciting articles of Stockholm.
See you out there –JC
