This brief post introduces a new category I am calling “Backroom Banter”.
In the days ahead, if the Lord tarries and I keep the creditors at bay, I will be conducting one-on-one interviews with notable luminaries in the travel industry, and perhaps a few outside, who meet two criteria: something worthwhile to say and an engaging flair for saying it.
I think it is safe to assume that most of my readers, if not actually ardent travelers, are at the least furtively frittering away obscene blocks of time at work surfing the net and daydreaming about travel. Not to worry, it is our little secret . . . unless your boss reads this blog in which case you may soon have, if not the funds, at least unlimited time for travel.
I thought you might find it interesting to garner insights from travel industry influentials about emerging trends, timely topics and insider tips. If I am mistaken, this may well go down as one of the shortest blogging careers in cyber history. However, if I do a proper job in the guest interviewee selection process, even if the questions are a bit lame, their insightful answers should be able to carry the day.
You will be excited to know I have already drawn a bead on my very first guest which, incidentally, proved quite a challenge since I don’t draw very well and he would not hold still. While it would be premature to reveal his identity I have already reduced the possibilities by 50 percent or so merely by revealing his gender. If I now add that he currently resides in North America and, as far as I know, has no felony criminal record, I am practically giving his identity away.
By my reckoning, at this point I have you drooling in anticipation of the first installment. Either that or you have dozed off and are doing that disgusting thing people do when sleeping on airplanes. If you want to read the first installment of “Backroom Banter” you will just have to mosey on back, as we practically never say here in Texas.
Who would you like to see take the “Backroom Banter” hot seat?
