twitter_icon_travel_tuesdayTravel Tuesday aka #traveltuesday

It is our favourite day online, but we never seem to be around for it lately.  Started by Katy of WhereIvebeen in April of 2009, it has grown to one of the biggest days on Twitter in the travel blog community.

It is a day for Bloggers to recommend their favourite travel tweeters to fellow Twitterers.  You can see who is recommended and give them a follow.  All you have to do is follow the hashtag thread #traveltuesday on twitter and you can see the latest recommendations and travel news and join the conversation.

Finding Fellow Travel Tweeters

Finding people to follow when you first start out on twitter can be difficult.  When you search the Twitter hashtage (#) travel recommendations or the suggestions of websites such as WeFollow.com,  they only recommend people like NYTimesTravel, FodorsTravel and GoogleTravel.  Their recommendations already have huge followings and most likely won’t give you a follow back.  The If you are looking for people in the Travel Industry to follow and don’t know where to look, #traveltuesday is an excellent time to start looking.

We want to be able to recommend people while we are on the road, but TravelTuesday can be difficult to take part in when traveling to places like China.  So, it is time that we set up our own TravelTuesday list that we can tweet on tuesdays and give people a chance to follow all the great people that we have been following for the past year and a half.

We apologize if we have forgotten any of our friends on our list,  we have tried to include everyone that we chat with regularly, but sometimes we can be a little bit stupid and miss some of our favs!   Everyone is listed in Alphabetical order (well, sort of – at least all the first letters are in alphabetical order)

Before you start, why not follow Katy @whereivebeen us @theplanetd

If you notice that you have been left off, Please let us know and we will add you to the list!

    Rob, I am so sorry, You should have been at the top of our list. I have no idea how I missed you. Deepest apologies, especially when I tweet your stuff regularly. All, I can think is when I put it in the Alphabetizer things got messed up. You are always on our list!

    Hi there, I would love to be included in the list, @tbedsaul! We were in China this summer and we’re blogging about it now, you might get a few ideas for your upcoming trip ;-)

      Thanks! Will check out your blog for sure. I remember reading it before and it is excellent. Thank you for the reminder we need all the advice we can on China. And, we have added you:)

      Melanie, I had you as MelaniefineEvi and then remembered that you changed it. I was going to look up you new name because while I was making the list it didn’t come to me. And then I forgot once I finished, I am so sorry lady! See you tomorrow!

    Excellent list – thank you for including me!

    I love the “lists” feature of Twitter – when you add people to a list, others can choose to view your list and either follow the whole list or follow individuals from it – it makes it easy to follow a whole bunch of new people all with one click.

    Big hugs to both of you!

      I haven’t figured out the list yet. Is there an easier way to put people into the list instead of one by one? I started one once and it was so time consuming that I gave up, but maybe I am doing something wrong.

    1. davendeb

      Of Course Isabelle! I couldn’t imagine you not being there, but then again, I ended up leaving a couple of very good friends off the original draft, so stranger things could have happened:)

      Congrats on your first #traveltuesday next up is #TNI on Thursday. If you loved #tt, you’ll love #TNI

      Thanks Jennifer. It is true, I bet that most of the people we mentioned follow each other. We all seem to”travel” in the same circles.

      So true, when we first started tweeting, we had no idea where to look for fellow travel tweeters. We followed the people that twitter recommends, but like I said, they only seem to recommend the corporate blogs or people with huge followers that are less likely to follow you back. It is important to socialize on twitter so you want people to follow you back. The list we have above is filled with people that will answer your tweets and give advice. They are great!

      You are there, can’t believe you weren’t in the first draft. Especially since we chat on facebook and tweet a lot. My bad!

    1. davendeb

      Now, I know what I did. I had you twice! Once as travelcanucks and once as travelingcanucks. don’t know why I did that. But took off the travelingcanucks. Travelcanucks was a bit higher on the list

    Thanks for the list! We just delved into Twitter a bit more recently and discovered #traveltuesday a few weeks ago, and have been actively participating. Would love to be in on the list.

    1. davendeb

      Hi Minimus, found you thanks. For anyone else wanting to be left on the list, please leave your twitter handle. It makes things a lot easier for us:-) Cheers!

      Of course girl. We have to do a huge update. When we leave China, it is the first thing on my list!
