We used to start our writing with “dear (travel) diary”; now we upload albums to Facebook. Do not get caught up in the idea of the “good old days”, which most people say were better than today. A web 2.0 travel diary, if it is created carefully and based on a rigorous selection of your material, can become a work of quality that is immediately accessible with just a click. Choose the social network best suited to you and your writing style. For example, Facebook if you prefer having captions with your images or Twitter if you like short bursts of ideas and feelings. If you use Twitter, don’t forget to create a snappy hashtag for your reportage. Who knows? You might even become a trending topic.
