The All-New Crowd Sourced desi Travel Digest from Instagram
When I wrote the post about ” What Happened On desi Traveler Blog In 2016 “, besides a few good things, I also shared two of my pain areas namely Instagram and the comatose desi Travel digest. So I decided to take both of them head on with help of all the desi Travelers out there. Those of you who are regular here will remember that the desi Travel Digest was my personal picks of all the blog posts I read on the net and then shared them here. Unfortunately, due to many reasons ( mainly laziness ), I could not continue the digest regularly.
Anyways long story short so I decided my Achilles heel i.e. my Instagram and the desi Travel Digest and combined the two. So the idea is very simple and nothing great. Some of the followers of desi Traveler blog and Instagram were using the #desiTraveler hashtag on Instagram and tagging me. Now those of you who are familiar with the #hashtag story on Instagram will know that it is a great way of discovering new accounts on Instagram & soon I was introduced to many wonderful Instagrammers. Many of the biggest Instagram accounts around the globe are built around community contribution where the aggregator showcases best images of people following them and using a particular hashtag. So here at desi Traveler, I decided to do the same and invited folks on Instagram to follow me and use #desiTraveler. This way I hope to build the community of desi Travelers around the world and also revive the desi Travel digest.
For the first ” All New Crowd Sourced Desi Travel Digest”, I am sharing pictures from various Instagram accounts that have used the #desiTraveler. The images appear in no particular order or preference and are simply a function of when I found them. I like each of these images equally. So please go ahead check these Instagrammers who also happen to be desi Travelers wandering around the world sharing their travel stories with all of us.
