Trends and Spots is a portal to different places, events and people’s spaces. It is a window to each unique experience in life celebrated in million ways. This website will help you meet new people and cultures.
Unlike the typical website that tours a reader and provides information on how to get around cities or places, Trends and Spots is a BLOGMAG. It could be a first of its kind in the internet industry. As the name suggests, a blogmag is a fusion of a weblog and a magazine.
Blogs are documentation of the daily life, mostly written in a first-person account. Meanwhile, a magazine is a kind of publication that contains variety of articles, regularly published in a given frequency, either weekly or monthly.
Trends and Spots therefore provides a fresh outlook merging the best features of a weblog and a magazine. This blogmag provides interesting features of events and places in short narratives while it has a window on personal experiences about dining, leisure, business, travel and more about living. This is a weekly blogmag.
