Only early last week Danny and I posted ‘Why we keep posting during the coronavirus crisis‘ but it feels like a century passed already.
In this time of COVID-19 time flashes by and at the same time goes slower than in Madonna‘s song.
We decided to post even less travel reviews. We used to post three per week: on Tuesday, on Thursday and on Sunday. Only last week we decided to post two: on Wednesday and on Sunday. Starting next week, we’ll post only one: on Sunday.
Mostly because we don’t know when this situation will end. When will be able to freely travel for leisure again? And where? The pandemic is making victims at different times and rates so it’s impossible to make a firm prediction.
Public health first obviously and for a tourist’s point of view leisure travel is only a luxury.
But it’s hard to decide on the tone. I blog a lot these days. (Almost) daily on Trip By Trip and on Be Out.
Be Out is a Belgian LGBT news blog and that’s not difficult. The virus crisis provides for enough stories.
Trip By Trip on the other hand focuses on leisure. So the question is. Do I, do we, keep our enthusiastic tone of voice about the travels we did, hotels we slept in, flights we flew, cruises we cruised and excursions we did?
Or should we calm down? Is it inappropriate to blog about joys of the past? About experiences which might not come back?
I don’t have an answer. At least not yet.
Quite a few of our our followers blog (almost) daily. I’m interested in your policies, your views on the issue. So please share with me, with us, how you deal with this situation.
