Trisha Miller

Trisha Miller Editor-in-Chief, - Trisha joined the Travel Industry in 1996 with a background in telecommunications and helped to build (and later sell) one of the industry's top inbound call centers specializing in air travel.

Her career in Travel Writing began with creating destination-specific content for a corporate travel intranet, and continued as she contributed content to a large number of travel-related companies that were establishing an online presence throughout the late '90's and early '00's.

Currently she is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, and a former Board Member of the International Food, Wine, and Travel Writers Association (2009-2015).  Still a frequent world traveler, and occasional guest-blogger on a number of other Travel Blogs, Trisha writes about travel and technology, sometimes both at the same time.

A good number of travel bloggers that I regularly read are doing a great job of incorporating video and audio into their travel blogs, so if you’re one of them — good for you! If you’re new to travel blogging and haven’t yet tried adding either video or audio, well then you should! It’s a […]

Making Mountains Out Of Molehills

As with most cliches, this one is pretty self-explanatory – making more out of something than what you (seemingly) start with. Most often it’s used in a negative way to describe someone’s behavior — when a person is making a huge deal out of a trivial problem. But it seems appropriate when I advise new […]

Just as the internet has forever changed the world of Publishing, it’s also forever changed the way a Travel Writer connects with his or her audience. In the “olden days” of travel writing, you’d submit your article to a travel magazine, or maybe the travel section of a newspaper, and while you could find out […]

Earlier this week Rebecca did a great job of reviewing She made a point about the fact that they were trying to be too many things, instead of just focusing on one and actually being excellent at it, which they weren’t. I felt it was a perfect example of a mistake that a lot […]

Smack Down: Seesmic vs TweetDeck vs Nambu
Posted in Reviews, Technology on 16 July 2009
Stats: and 22 Comments

Last week I happened to mention on Twitter that I was not thrilled with TweetDeck, as it was unstable and crashed regularly on my Mac, and that I was testing an alternative Twitter Client called Nambu. Nambu is a native Mac application, whereas TweetDeck runs on the Adobe AIR platform. I really love Nambu, but […]

Everyone knows by now that Social Media has taken the business world by storm. It seems like it’s all anyone is talking about online these days. Online communities such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and others that started out as a way for people to keep in touch with family and friends have morphed into valuable […]

Who Needs a Custom 404 Page? You Do!
Posted in Overcoming Obstacles, Technology, Tips & Tricks on 3 July 2009
Stats: and 7 Comments

As I read some of my favorite Travel Blogs, one of the things I’ve noticed is that a lot of travel bloggers don’t realize that they can (and should) customize their default “404” page that comes with nearly every WordPress Theme. Worse though, is that some bloggers don’t have a 404 Page at all, either […]

Avoid Extinction with Social Media Networking

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of email from some, well let’s just say “traditional“, travel writers, asking me why everyone is making such a fuss over this “new online social stuff”. They don’t understand it. They think that Twitter is just a way for kids to keep in touch, that Facebook is still just […]
