Travel Friendly Social Media: timeBlend!

For part of my research, I have been looking high and low for social media sites geared for travelers, to find travel buddies and maybe get some advice from other travelers. I mean, I know it’s not for at least 3 years that I will be able to leave home, but it’s never too early for finding new friends who are doing what I plan to do.

I recently learned about timeBlend! from a friend of mine. Right now, it’s in Beta mode, so you actually need an invite to join, but it doesn’t take long to get the invite. Once you’re in, you can connect with other travelers around the world, make lists of places you’ve been and places you want to go, offer tips, plan trips… and even more! I am actually still learning about this Social Media platform, so far, I am loving it!

The only downside is that they don’t have apps available for Android (or Apple, for that matter…) and that would be a major plus. I have a feeling (or at least really hope) they will at some point in the future, since it seems like something that would be super mobile app friendly.

If you want to request an invite and join the fun, just Click Here to sign up! If you have any other suggestions for travel-friendly SM sites I should check out, let me know in the comments, I am always open to suggestions!

  1. Melissa – I followed you on your tumblr blog a long time ago. I just discovered this blog of yours and I’m thrilled that you’ve found a passion. Your plans remind me of an old co-worker, Janet Anderson. She and her husband so love travel that they work for bits of time and then take off and travel. She’s written a bunch of books about her travels, i.e. “A Frog in My Backpack: Stories from a World Adventure”. Laura Resnick’s book “Blonde in Africa” is also fantastic. Take a look at the descriptions on Amazon and see if they interest you. If they do, feel free to leave your address in my tumblr ask ( and I’d be happy to gift you a book or two. – Anita/Boston (boring grown up that has always thought you were lovely.)


    • Awesome! I actually recently deleted my old Tumblr that I was active on a few years ago, but I do have a new(ish) one,… I will definitely be getting in touch with you there. 🙂
