Recently, a controversial issue about travel blogging has surfaced the Internet. It has given us many opportunities to evaluate travel blogging as a part of the industry.
Personally, I know that being a travel review writer is a huge responsibility. It should be done in a professional manner. Since I started writing about Watercamp Resort in Cavite, I tried to be honest with my reviews. I also interviewed the marketing team of the resort for a clearer view of the whole place. I’ve been there once to participate in a meeting with fellow freelance writers and my experience was great. However, I didn’t have the opportunity to try their accommodation offers. All in all, the place was exciting and very accessible.
Going back to travel blogging, the idea of writing negative food reviews to catch attention online is highly controversial these days. I don’t know the truth of this issue and all I can say is that being too honest without protecting the interests of other people is not good. Let’s enjoy a give-and-take mechanism within the community. Isn’t it amazing? After all, we are all interconnected irregardless of race, color and religion.
