Becky McCray (my Tourism Currents business partner,) Chris Brogan and me at the SOBCon business conference in ChicagoI don’t normally write a post about the launch of a new travel blog, but this one is different because the author is different.

Chris Brogan is well-known and respected in tech and social media circles for his books, his speaking skills and his consulting work with New Marketing Labs, but he has just embarked on a new gig….

A travel blog called Man on the Go. (update – unfortunately now defunct.)

So what? you say.

So he travels a lot, and he writes and shoots videos about the places he goes, where he stays and the travel gear he uses.

The unique Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee, for example.

So what? you say.

So he is also interested in how tourism organizations can connect with visitors using social media.

Here is an older blog post of his from a New Zealand trip – social media starter moves for tourism – which ties right into the social media training we do at Tourism Currents.

When a wired (and genuinely nice) guy like that starts a travel blog, you pay attention and connect. 🙂

Reach out and say hello if he’s in your town.
