Ramblr is Making Quite a Statement as the New Storytelling Craze Takes Flight
It seems everyone these days are using storytelling as a form of communication. Storytelling with maps, with pictures, or with songs, are just a few ways that people are jumping on the bandwagon with this new craze. Naturists, hikers, and bikers love storytelling with maps because it allows them to show other people with similar interests what they've experienced at a glance. Though the idea or type of apps for bloggers is not novel, the presentation of the new idea is novel.
For instance, if you go to the website, you'll, first, notice the blogger's photograph on the left hand side with a map in the middle. The trail will be highlighted in an easy to read color, and the difficulty of the trail will be listed at the top of the map. Some people may also list the length of the trail, and the time the trail will take if you travel at a certain pace.
On the right hand side of the map, hikers can upload pictures and videos that will appear as thumbnails. Three thumbnails will appear at a time. The website is well-organized, and several poster's accounts can appear on the map at one time. This is a novel idea that is designed to help all types of people with an interest in hiking or biking trails all over the world.
Storytelling with maps is a great way to meet friends and learn more about which trails will be best suited to your skill level. Some posters may even add a comment about the cost of the trail and where the best photo opportunities are located along the trail. The more information that hikers have about any trail, the better prepared they'll be during the hike.
There are so many benefits to this type of communication, and it's slightly different from other friendship forums such as Facebook or Friendster. If you want to participate, simply go onto the website and peruse the entries or post one yourself. Some people are so fanatical about it that they visit it before every hike for more information. Since the accounts originate from people who have actually hiked and biked the trails, they are more accurate, and some people trust the accounts more.
