My latest blog (and last one for a while) is a place where you can experience the geeky side of backpacking. The Tech Guide For Travel is a site all about the hardware, software, and hacks to make you the ultimate digital nomad. The blog is brand new with a few posts ready and many more waiting to be published. I thought I’d give you all a chance to take a look around before the fun begins.
What’s The Difference Between Tech Here and The Tech Guide For Travel?
I won’t stop posting about technology, software, and other gadgets here on foXnoMad. The Tech Guide For Travel will be the place though where I dive right into the details of nifty hacks, review gadgets, and tackle the age old question – Mac or Windows – all of course from a traveler’s point of view. There will also be some cross over between foXnoMad and the Tech Guide For Travel.
Why The Tech Guide For Travel?
I get a lot of questions about technology and many emails about various products, services, apps, websites, and programs – so many that I can’t fit them all here on foXnoMad. I love technology and have many years of experience as a computer security engineer and am excited to create a blog that’s all about the technology that makes traveling even more fun.
Here are two posts already up on the Tech Guide For Travel:
- My Interview With Raz Carcoana About iPhone App Travelholic Confessions
- 5 Ways To Get Your Gadgets and Software For Less
Be Prepared When Things Get Rolling
The Tech Guide For Travel gets rolling full steam next week and will be updated every Tuesday. You can be prepared and help the blog grow by providing your feedback and comments on the posts or in an email.
- Don’t miss future posts by subscribing to the Tech Guide For Travel RSS feed or weekly email updates.
- Consider a Guest Post. Dying to write about travel and technology? Consider submitting a guest post and I’ll let everyone know about it. I’ll also return the favor with a guest post of my own for you.
- Links. If you’ve already emailed me about a link on Travel Blog Advice, I’ll be adding you to the Tech Guide For Travel links page shorty. Otherwise shoot me an email I’ll be sure to add you.
- Ideas. Have any ideas for a post or question about anything tech and travel related? What about optimizing your travel blog code or jailbreaking your iPhone? Send me an email and if applicable I’ll set up a post to answer your question.
I can envision expanding the Tech Guide For Travel to a few more posts per week than just once on Tuesdays but for now I’ll pace myself. I’m very passionate about travel and technology and I can see the Tech Guide For Travel growing into something bigger with your help.
I hope that you’ll take a moment to check out the Tech Guide For Travel and consider subscribing to be ready for some brand new posts about the geeky side of backpacking.
As always, I appreciate all of your support. Many, many thanks again, -Anil
I look forward to the posts on this new site Anil – I have added it to my reader! 🙂
Shannon you are awesome! Thank you very much, hope you’re ready to geek out 🙂
Oh yeah! 😉 Lol, I am ready to channel my inner geek (heck, probably my outer one too!)
That’s the question most people get asked. You’ll have plenty to write about over there 🙂
Good luck with the new site. Headed over to subscribe now!
It will be fun to tackle the great tech questions 🙂 It seems like a rich source of travel material that I couldn’t all cover here. Many thanks for the support!
Definitely going to bookmark it too. When I started my trip in April 2008, people were critical that I brought an EEE PC because they said it would detract from the travel experience. Now, everyone wants to know if they ought to bring a laptop AND an iPhone/Blackberry! You’ve got a treasure trove of info to work with and I look forward to reading.
Jodi, I’m very lucky to have readers like you (and everyone else reading too!) I appreciate all the help with this new site.
I remember too reading (more so) a few years back about whether to bring a laptop or not when traveling. I can’t imagine going anywhere without one. Even if I didn’t need it to get work done, it’s the best tool a traveler can have for some many reasons.
I’m looking forward to read more geek articles from your new site. Love it!!!
I’ve got my pocket protector ready 🙂
What a great topic to hit. A very daunting one for me:) So I’m looking forward to reading it!!!!!!
I’ll try to put my geekiness to good use. It’s got to be good for something, why not a blog 🙂
Good luck with your new site. I can always use a few more technical trips. I never travel without my Macbook, but then again, I’m not a backpacker. 🙂
Donna, my laptop might as well be a part of my body. It goes everywhere I do.
expanding your empire huh? awesome!
Thanks Matt, yup branching out. Got some great advice about it from someone 🙂
Congratulations on your new(est) blog – looks like it will be an interesting read.
I appreciate it Barbara!
Anil, I dodn’t know how you find the time or energy!
I’m not especially geeky but always open to conversion, plus it’s amazing how the tech factor increases once you start blogging.
I told my son (age 12) that he was an internet native & I was an internet migrant, but he said that I must be president of the internet migrant’s society. I think that means I must be getting more geeky!
It’s a combination of lack of sleep and abundance of caffeine 🙂 Your son gave you a promotion in Internet society – you must be earning points from blogging!
Congrats Anil! I’ve added it to my Reader. Looking forward to your new venture as this one speaks to my inner geek! 🙂
Thanks I’m preparing some posts with coding and hacking tools for next week that will speak to your inner geek 🙂
