I have always been lucky in that for the most part I have been able to work doing things that I enjoy doing. Sometimes it meant getting paid for what I do, other times it meant doing it for fun. Back in the late 90′s I did a website based on vacationing at the Jersey Shore, purely as a project of love. As the world of blogging took over my focus, I had given up on the venture promising on day to return to it, and possibly reinvent it as a vaction blog of where to go and what to do when on vacation in New Jersey.
Imagine my surprise, when Whit provided me with the opportunity to do it as part of a project on a much grander scale. Anyway, due to some slip ups, I am only getting started, but I will be joining a band of most excellent bloggers (check out the About Us page for the list of stars I will be trying to live up to) , writing at UpTake.com.
Yesterday was actually the official launch, and you can check out the official launch of their Travel Network Blog. For those that like read such things, there is even an official press release of the launch event (that I missed), for everybody else, just go and check out everything they have to offer, because with real reviews and blogs written by real people and not, say… imaginary gnomes, UpTake is … Your first Step to a Great Trip.
