5 Good Reasons to Write for TripAdvisor

It's a Bit of a Climb to the Top



This congratulations, came in an email yesterday and, it was a surprise.

In August 2009, I first joined TripAdvisor.

Over the next two years, I don't think, I did a dozen reviews.

Then, in 2012 someone commented to me, that my reviews were helpful.

And, she mentioned that there wasn't much written, in English, about Okinawa on TripAdvisor.

From then on, I decided to start doing more reviews. 

Why Should Anyone Write for a Travel Outfit for Free ?

  • It helps other travelers
  • Gets you in the habit of documenting experiences
  • It's easy. No deadlines and no editor, breathing down your neck
  • It gives your photos worldwide coverage
  • If you don't like a place, you can, say so and, tell others about the horrible experience  

Those are good enough reasons for me. How about you ?

You and the "Map It Okinawa" Dude are the go-to guys for finding groovy stuff to do on Okinawa.
