New CityBlog Network SpottedByLocals.com Lets Travelers Experience Cities Like a Local
City travelers are increasingly looking to learn more about the local culture of their chosen destination. Paperback travel guides and websites with user generated travel information often fail to offer this “local” perspective...
On www.SpottedbyLocals.com, the first series of cityblogs of its kind, handpicked bloggers write about spots and pass on local tips from a personal and local perspective. All potential bloggers are selected after a face to face interview. Only “real” locals that are really passionate about their city are selected.
Spotted by Locals has recently launched 18 European city blogs, and will be launching a further 5 in the coming months.
Modern city travelers are
looking for local experiences
Travel guide authors are often travelers themselves, and as such cannot necessarily offer the local perspective readers are looking for. Also a lot of the time the information in paperback travel guides quickly becomes inaccurate or no longer current.
Travelers are increasingly turning to the Internet to source a wealth of travel tips written by locals and travelers alike. However, it is often difficult or plain impossible to see who is behind the "local" travel tips. Is it really a bona fide native or actually a traveler who has only visited the spot once? Perhaps it is even the proprietor of the spot with motivations of self-interest?
Real local content by real
Spotted by Locals sees that the key to creating high quality, up-to-date and authentic content is a face-to-face interview with the potential Spotter. After establishing if they meet the required criteria, are really passionate about their city and speak the local language, they are then selected to write for one of the blogs.
