I'm curious as to whether anyone has tried blogging as part of their marketing for their B&Bs? Full disclosure: I'm posting as part of a content marketing agency that specializes in alternative accommodations.

I'd love to hear first hand what successes you've had/issues you've faced/whether it's been worth your while.

I am many things, but I've never been accused of being subtle.

No offense, but I don't think you're going to find any traditional innkeepers eager to give advice to "alternative accomodations." 

Anticipate a silent thread, my friend.

And here I was being subtle.

What do you consider 'alternative'?

Alternative as opposed to more traditional/standard hotels. B&Bs, cottages, vacation rentals, and so on.

Sorry if the term caused any offense. Smiling  Truly was not meant to.

Almost everyone on here is 'traditional" and probably not really in the mood to help someone who is promoting 'alternative' lodging.

Kind of like asking a taxi medallion holder to explain how to make Uber work better.

I'm sorry if it appeared as if I was looking for a handout from anyone—and again, if I offended with the term alternative—just was trying to get a first-hand understanding of some challenges faced and wanted to be up front with who I was as per the terms for vendors in the FAQ. Happy long weekend to all!
