When a Travel Star gains more views than anyone else, they can earn the chance to be a Brand Ambassador for one of our vacation rentals. The stays most often last one week. During that time, the person who earned the stay promotes their stay in that rental. They also use social media to tell the world about their stay before it happens and even after they leave. For that week, the Brand Ambassador is the star. A Travel Star, in fact. Are we confusing blogging with sharing photos and videos? Possibly. There are several philosophies. Some say the word blogging now also covers photo sharing and video blogging. Some say they are different. We have even spoken to those who insist that blogging is no longer considered social media. We here at VRguest are not philosophers. We tend to use the word “blogging” to cover everything. What does VR stand for? On VRguest.com, it stands for Vacation Rental, not virtual reality.
