As I’ve mentioned, we’re planning on spending two or three months in Morocco in the new year. We plan to visit a couple of towns to see what we like, and then find some medium-term, Internet-enabled accommodation.
When we first arrive, we’ll obviously need somewhere to stay. We turned once again to Luxury Link, an auction site for luxury travel (I have a soft, slightly rotten spot for lovely, unusual lodgings). We were the successful and sole bidders on four nights at the awesome-looking Jnane Tamsna, a guest house in the Palmeraie on the outskirts of Marrakesh.
As the only bidders, we paid the minimum price for Jnane Tamsna–about CAN $950 for four nights, breakfast every day, one dinner, a guide for a half-day and sundry other tidbits. The website put the retail value of the package at $2500. Even if they’re padding those numbers, that’s still a fantastic deal.
Minds Change, Should Post Titles?
When I originally booked our first trip with Luxury Link, I was pretty unhappy with the auction system, which differs from eBay’s. My subsequent happy experiences with Luxury Link has ameliorated those concerns, and a while ago I updated my earlier post to say so.
I’ve exchanged a few friendly emails with the folks at Luxury Link, who more or less asked me to change the title of that post, because of its SEO juice. I declined, but ever since I’ve wondered if I should.
Should I modify the post title to reflect my current thinking, or should blog posts remain archival reflections of my thinking on a given day in my past? I have written positively about Luxury Link since then, but haven’t knocked off that first post. It’s a trivial little test case (less trivial for the SEO-sensitive owners of Luxury Link), I suppose, and an issue I’ll encounter more often the older my blog gets.
What would you do?
UPDATE: I decided to change the title of that post to something more accurate, and reflect that in another update at the top of the post.
