Which Travel Bloggers do You Read?

So, I have been following a few in the past few years and now I am curious if I am following the right ones. On my subscription page on my mac, I have View from the Wing, The Points Guy, and Travel is Free (though they don't post nearly as often as they used to). I used to follow Mommy Points (even though I have no kids).

 

Some of these I find useful for late breaking information and deals. Some I find are simply pushing credit card applications through their sites to generate revenue...

 

I am curious, which ones am I missing, which ones are up and coming... whom do you read?

    I guess who I read depends on the information I'm looking for.  I like Points with a Crew, Mommy Points and Miles for Family...as you can see, I'm looking for information about traveling with families...specifically where they go with their families and how they get there.  I also like Mommy Points because she's based in Houston and I can relate more to that market than others (I'm in San Antonio).  But then, I also like to scan Boarding Area just see what's going on elsewhere.  I usually don't read most of the articles published, but scan the headlines for anything that catches my eye.

      Great comments. When I travel with kids - it is when I bring along my nieces and nephews. Since the wife and I are Disney Vacation Club members, we tend to do Disney a lot... cruises or otherwise.

    So many travel blogs, so little time!  I don't travel for work, so most of my getaways are with family.

     

    Some of the blogs I like are:

    • Travel Codex
    • Travel Mamas
    • Traveling Canucks
    • Adventurous Kate
    • Out of Town Blog
    • Mommy Points
    • Johnny Jet
    • Will Travel for Food
    • Travel with Bender

     

    I tend to scan the articles and read what I find of interest.

    I've found a similar problem as you, mrbmbrown. I've been a reader of TPG, ViewFromTheWing and Flyertalk for while now. Problem is; the more I read them, the more I find their "valuations" to be extremely generous and most of the articles bear the hallmarks of "sponsored content". I'd really like to find a blog out there that offers unbiased info that isn't fed to us by the marketing teams of Chase/Amex/Citi.

     

    I'll have to peruse Mupptewranger's list.

      Try loyalty lobby - the guy is not bought and paid for like the rest you mention. I rarely even go directly on the site (which does have lot of banner ads), but subscribe to his email which often has news I haven't seen anywhere else (or at least he's first).
