    Hotel reviews.

  2. Paul

    I think your niche is insightful commentary on aspirational travel, with an emphasis on the “what” rather than the “how”. Stay the course.

  3. Robin

    I do like some of your quirkier articles about hotels, like that emergency cord that is above the bathtub.
    Thank you for the 31 days of giveaways! It’s been a lot of fun commenting and seeing what other people have been saying!

    I’m new to Magic of Miles. Looking forward to exploring the site, especially your Japan trip reports, as we’re headed there in 2017.

    I would like to see more on how beginners can start. Most beginners posts that I have read assume people aren’t really beginners and actually know something. (I am as green as can be and even though I know more than I used to, I still know barely anything.)

  18. Paula

    Keep it up! Beginner videos would be useful.

  19. CnMaz
