If you’ve been waiting to share your travels at IgoUgo until you have a free minute, today’s the day to write a review. It will take you just a few seconds to check out some of the best features IgoUgo’s ever introduced and to get writing. Voting, too—but that’s a whole other story.

Starting now, it’s easier than ever to share journals, reviews, and experiences with the IgoUgo Community. Dynamic new features, which you can see by logging into your account and perusing or creating your own travel journals, allow you to better craft a journal by adding and removing existing reviews; creating headings that group reviews within a journal; and dragging reviews and headings into any desired order. Play around with your journals as much as you’d like, and then change them back if the new looks you created aren’t working for you. Then let us know what you like (or dislike) about these new creative possibilities!

And since we love nothing more than new ways to recognize our top members and their writing and photos (see the in-progress U GO! Awards!), we’re equally excited to introduce a system that allows members to choose and showcase the best of IgoUgo. When you see a journal, experience, review, or photo that deserves top billing on the site, simply click its “Vote ‘Best of IgoUgo’” icon to help land it on an (equally in-progress) upcoming page—a spot where the content receiving the most votes over the past week, month, and all time will be revered, glorified, and consulted by all travelers. This new page, created by you, will also be a hub of all things Community, including the Hall of Fame, Message Boards, and more.

Lastly, for all you sticklers out there (we get it—we’re a little OCD, too), everything uploaded to IgoUgo now features a “Flag” icon for you to click if you find any journal, review, experience, or photo to be inappropriate. An editor will then review the flagged item and take appropriate action immediately.

If you have questions about any of these big reveals, find the answers among our Frequently Asked Questions or drop us a line. Happy writing and voting!
