I had a wacky thought earlier today that I thought might be worth running with, when I built the Saverocity network it was to provide a community platform where people could benefit from the collective. Why not extend that platform to the people without a voice, but who probably have way more interesting stories anyway?
It struck me that the stories of some of the lot of the most interesting folks, or perhaps the average everyday reader who finally managed to pull off a great award trip might be a lot more relateable and fun to read than the latest blogger who figured out how use the Bluebird Card (it did take me a couple of years and a walk around Manhattan with The Miles Professor so I am not pointing any fingers here).
Perhaps we could run an interview series here on the Travel section featuring non-bloggers, people who read the site and have insights to share about their own journey, be it in F and Hyatts or in Camper van, and along with the joy of being a blogger and talking about themselves and their experiences for the day they can also pimp a link or two for their own benefit.
I see some of the poor, blogless souls on Twitter trying to push the Uber link, and there are other great options too, such as the Lot18 $10 for New Customers ($25 for me, which equals out since I probably have more expensive tastes than you) or whatever you can think of.
What do you reckon, could it be fun to read from someone ‘normal’ (or perhaps even weirder than I am)? Leave a comment below if you feel like participating as a writer, or if you think it is a good or bad idea as a reader. Cheers!
