Okay Travel/Tourism bloggers, it’s time to get known. I have to say that I hate this kind of game but since it could be helpful for everyone, why not? The goal is simple, I want my favorite blogs (Guillaume, Chris, Darren, Claude, etc.) to be discovered by a maximum of people from the tourism and travel industry.

T-List stands for Tourism/Travel list. This concept have been used in the past with the Z-List. This time, it’s up to travel and tourism bloggers to be discovered. ; )

– Write a post.
– Copy/paste the link list from the post you’ve discovered the T-List into it.
– Make sure the links are active and correct.
– If your blog is on the list, remove it’s not a self-promotion post. As Tim Fehlman (Z-List) said : “Don’t worry, because if your name is on mine, it’s on others and will spread.”
Add your favorite tourism and travel blogs on it.
– Add the url of the blog where you’ve discovered the T-List as well.
– Publish the post.
– People will notice the T-List and continue it.

Here is the list
Hotel Blogs
Les Explorers
Chrispitality Media Blog
A Luxury Travel Blog
Travel Rants
Travolution Blog
Erin Julian
My Travel Backpack
Happy Hotelier
The Travel PR Blog

Your turn!

    Thanks for the link Mathieu. I hope you won’t be offended but I haven’t participated in the ‘T list’ as I have written blog posts already for this weekend.

    I’ll try my best to include some of the blogs in a peice I am writing next week.

    Hi Mathieu,

    A nice iniciative. Just keep in mind that there are also some trade blogs in other languages than english, like mine which is in spanish. That’s why I included some spanish blogs in my particular List.

    I invite you to have a look at:

    I’ve discovered your blog with the T-List (via Technorati)… and I’ve subscribed to your feed! It will be a pleasure to read you since you got some really interesting posts!

    I found some German and French blogs in the T-List. Really cool. I’ll have to practice Spanish and German in the next weeks. ; )

  9. Albert Barraon 04 Mar 2007 at 7:05 pm

    Hi Mathieu again,

    Thank you ! I understand that is exactly the main purpose of the T-List. I regret Technorati can not translate the Blogs, meanwhile we are having a lot of fun.

    I have received a few emails from bloggers asking me why I am not participating in the t-list when Mathieu has very kindly linked to my blog on his initial blog post. I have mentioned most of the blogs in the initial list numerous times within blog posts, and within my Blogroll.

    I dislike link baiting as all it does is makes a mockery of the Technorati ranking system and gives a negative view of how popular a blog really is. I am sorry if this has upset any of you but that is where I stand on the matter.

    I will of course continue to link to useful blogs and sites that I think readers would be interested in visiting and reading within appropriate blog posts.

  18. Mathieuon 07 Mar 2007 at 5:46 pm

    @Darren. It wasn’t an obligation to do so. Actually, as I said, I usually hate that kind “game” but the real goal was to get travel bloggers to know and discover each other. To be honest, I don’t really care about Technorati rating because it’s only based on who links who. I don’t think it gives a real portrait of blogs popularity.

    BTW, I’m not offended at all about your silence regarding the T-List. Sorry if some bloggers are… ; )

  21. […] Mathieu from Radaron.com introduced an interesting concept where travel blogs create a ‘t-list’ and add their favourite blogs on to a list created by Mathieu. My travel blog Technorati rating was 39,337 prior to the launch of the t-list, as of today, the ranking has increased 27,505 and I can only put this down to the extra 30+ blog links that the list generated, over the past 10 days.

    This is a great idea. I will try what you suggest and post your list on my blog. I’m a little bit unclear how this works, but I’ll give it a try and we’ll see if it’s possible to help readers find well-written and informative travel blogs.

    We – the Austrian National Tourist Office discovered the T-List at fasten your seatbelts, a fine austrian travelexpert-blog and also find the T-list as a great idea. We don´t discuss travel topics in our blog but as we are austrian travel experts, we try to deliver experiences to potential short-trip travellers at our blog. So, it seems that we also should take part at the game …

    Yes, thanks for creating the T-List. We published it a few days ago on the Viator blog (http://travelblog.viator.com/travel-tourism-blogs-the-t-list/). Maybe the original poster of the T-List should create an email / Google / Yahoo group for interested parties. Many of us are in the travel & tourism industry, and I’m sure we could all assist each other in our various area. Just a thought.

    […] We were looking over all of those great blogs on the T-List the other day and realized that the list could use a little re-organization.  There were a few repeats, a few dead sites, and a few sneaky marketers who had managed to get their name on the list.  So now we present you with a new version of the T-List separated by language and category to make it easier to digest.  Please add your own additions and pass it along.  Special thanks to Mathieu at radaron for starting this whole thing back in March.

  33. […] Episode 1 – In March 2007, Mathieu from Radaron started the T-List which lists blogs related to Travel / Tourism. 32 comments have been posted on Mathieu’s post (last one is from 20th June). The list was highly acclaimed to be a good initiative. Only one blogger didn’t like the idea. […]

  45. Tourism Internet Marketing [dot com]on 11 Jan 2008 at 4:52 am

    […] What is the T-List? The T-List is a list of travel and tourism related blogs, which was first established by Mathieu at the Radar Blog (based in Quebec, Canada), and then I (based in Vancouver, Canada) put the T-List on Facebook. So the T-List was born and nurtured in Canda, and embraced by travel-relatede bloggers world-wide. Lots of T-List bloggers have signed up on Facebook, and the T-List has become an inofficial community. Even though there has been some controversy about the T-List as a concept, the power of sharing thoughts and connecting with fellow Travel and Tourism bloggers is undenieable. Now, we are looking to consolidate the best posts from these T-List blogs to share with the travel and tourism industry worldwide in a new book, titled “Tips from the T-List”. Since the T-List was born in Canada, it is only natural that the new book “Tips from the T-List” would launch at the fist Canadian e-Tourism Strategy Conference, Canada-e-Connect. The knowledge and expertise of these bloggers is amazing and covers many different areas of focus. We hope that this new book will become a little nuggget for travel, tourism, and hospitality marketers. In the world of mass collaboration, and since the keynote speaker at the Canada’s first e-Tourism Strategy Conference is Anthony Willaims, the author of the bestseller “Wikinomics”, we had the idea to put his thoughts into action and lead with a good example and have all T-List bloggers collaborate to create this guide of current oneline marketing trends in travel and tourism via the various blogs.

Here is the current list that I discovered on RadarOn. […]

  48. […] I’ve had several people ask me about the T-List, primarily other bloggers who have heard about it but can’t find the most recent version of it. Quite simply,the T-List is an evolving list of travel related blogs from around the World. The concept was started by Matthieu at the Radar Blog back in March of 2007. Honestly, I have no idea where the most recent list is, and I suppose that is part of the fun of the list. It is moving, evolving, and growing independently in various places around the Web. Jens Thraenhart at the Canadian Tourism Commission started a group on Facebook to try and bring T-List bloggers together. As of today, there are 69 members. […]
