Write to Travel Gone Geeky: Alltop, Babelfish, Widgets, and Gizmos...

Have had a number of geek attacks this week. And as a result, I've been adding some widgets, badges, and gizmos to Write to Travel blog.

First up, Alltop.com has added Write to Travel to it's list of Travel Blogs - so welcome to anyone who has arrived here from there. I noticed that it's listed by the old name 'My Year of Getting Published'. Not sure how to change that so that stays. And someone pointed out to me that the blog has been listed twice (a slip of the click I'm sure).

In thanks, I've added the Alltop 'badge of honor'...click on it and you'll find your way to bloggers heaven. Set up in wonderful catergories such as travel, food, health, wine, etc, etc, there are web resources for you to simply get lost in for hours and days.

Next geek attack resulted in finding the Babelfish widget or gizmo (not sure which is what). I added this so that Write to Travel could claim to be truly international. You'll find the widget/gizmo on the sidebar just below the categories list. It translates the page into six other languages. So now you have the chance to see Write to Travel in eight other languages.

And then I discovered SpringWidgets and found I could create widgets that showcase my writing on Healthbolt and Perceptive Travel Blog. So of course I had to add them to the mix. You'll find them just below the Babelfish Translator on the sidebar.

Wonder what else I can add ???

Fixed your title (which we grab from your feed, so you might want to check your feed). I overrode the automatic system. And I moved you up the page.

I like that Babelfish - might get that one myself. Now we can be truly international and maybe get a wider readership.

Hi Guy, thanks for that...will look at the feed and change the title...and thanks too for the move up the page...awesome!! Alltop really is great -- have spent way to much time over there discovering more blogs and websites than I'll ever have time to read...

Hi Heather, Babelfish is brilliant...it's a good thing to have on your site and if you come across another site not in english and without the babelfish translator, you can go to babelfish homepage and get an instant translation - magic...
