We’re Getting Almost Famous!

February 17th, 2010 at 3:16 pm (AST) by Jake Richter

So maybe not really famous, but Lindblad Expeditions, the folks who operate the National Geographic Explorer from which we’re presently enjoying our three week exploration of Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic, just posted a news item on their site about The Traveling Richters.

You can see their post here.

And our fellow blogger/traveler, Andrew Evans, also just tweeted about us on Twitter.

There appear to be others aboard the National Geographic Explorer here in the Antarctic who are also trying to blog regularly, other than us.

Most notable is National Geographic Traveler magazine contributing editor, Andrew Evans, who has been tweeting regularly from aboard ship.

You can follow him here:

and here on Twitter:

This is what Andrew looks like:

How to Get Traveling Richters Updates

February 4th, 2010 at 5:36 pm (AST) by Jake Richter

Some of you may be aware that you can sign up on this site to get e-mail notification of new posts (scroll down  and look for the “Subscribe by E-Mail” box on the right hand side of the main page, for example).

Those of you with a bit more blog experience may be using a blog reader or aggregator that uses our RSS feeds and provides them to you automatically.

Just now, I installed yet another way for you to monitor for new posts, thanks to a new plug-in I found for our WordPress blog software. The plug-in is called “Tweet This“, and what it does is send a “tweet” to Twitter every time I make a new post either here in The Traveling Richters blog or over on my Foodie Moment blog (where there are a couple of new posts today).

If you didn’t understand the above paragraph – no worries. The important thing is that as of this post you can then follow us on Twitter at to see short notices about new posts in our blogs.

More tomorrow from Aruba, hopefully. Note that we will not be sending out e-mails about our travels during our trip – all Traveling Richters trip information from the Antarctic will appear exclusively here.
