Million Mile Secrets

I’m going to spend a few posts telling you about other blogs that I really like.  I’ve mentioned in the past that I got my start with travel hacking by reading the Frugal Travel Guy.  While I still enjoy reading that blog, I have a new favorite blog – Million Mile Secrets.  This is a relatively new blog; it started in April 2011.  It is written by Daraius Dubash.  There are several things I like about this blog:

  1. It is not over cluttered - I don’t like reading blogs that cram so much information in many sections on their front page.  That’s one thing I didn’t like about the redesign of the Frugal Travel Guy’s site.
  2. Love his top menu – You have to check out his top menu bar.  I find myself going to this site many times because I know that information I reference over and over again (like award charts and credit card offers) can be found easily from his top menu.
  3. His posts are detailed and visual - He gives great information in his posts.  And I love that he includes screen shots.  I wish that I could create as many posts as he does in the detail that he does.  I just don’t have the time to do it.  Creating posts with screen shots takes a lot of time.  I appreciate when a blogger takes the time to do that.
  4. The interviews – He has a running series where he interviews other bloggers.  I’ve learned a lot from his interviews and I like that he covers them instead of thinking of them as competition.
  5. His site isn’t covered with ads – I’m all for kickbacks from companies (although I do not take any).  I don’t know if Daraius does or not, but I like that his site isn’t covered with ads. 
  6. He talks about his life - This makes the blog seem real.  I love that he posted about when he proposed to Emily – and she said yes!

So check out his blog.  I subscribe to it via Google Reader (as I do with all of the blogs I follow), but I also suggest you visit the actual site.  That is so much information on the site.  I’m sure you’ll find it very informative and a good read.

And who knows – maybe I’ll even to get interview him someday.  If you happen to be going to the Chicago Seminar this weekend, you’ll have a chance to meet him.

    FYI, Daraius does not currently accept any type of commissions on his site.

    • Thanks for posting that; I think that is fantastic! I’d still like the site even if he did, but I think it gives people a peace of mind knowing that the information is not biased in any way.

      BTW – I love your site too!
