I like to see original photos and honest, personal content. If the person had a great time, I want to know how and why. I don't want the same info that I'd see in Wikipedia or the same adjectives used in other travel blogs. This isn't hard to do. I think it's very easy to do.
I think if the writer starts with that then the other stuff (travel tips, reviews of hotels/restaurants, etc) will flow.
That's what I try to deliver in my hubs. I've lived in Japan for the past few years and a lot of my hubs are about places I've been.
BTW, good luck on you blog!
