2008-08-02 09:07 - New Featured Article

It had been over a year since I last wrote a featured article for the website, but I thought this particular issue needed to be addressed because it kept coming up over and over again when it comes to Africa. To find out what it is, click the link below! [read more]

2008-08-09 23:06 - New Commenting Feature Integrated For Many Pages

The new commenting feature, which is designed to be more integrated with the World of Waterfalls website as well as be more visible and interactive, is now implemented in several pages of the website. These pages include the regions of California, Norway, and Australia. Moreover, it has also been integrated with waterfall wonders like Iguazu Falls, Victoria Falls, Niagara Falls, and Angel Falls.

In addition to the above waterfalls, the new commenting feature is also integrated into The World's Top 10 List as well as regional top 10 lists for Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, USA, and Hawaii.

I'm still working to get the new commenting feature into the remaining pages of the website, but it will take time.

One negative side effect of this little bit of an overhaul for the website is that the existing visitor ratings for the individual web pages were erased. The ratings system is still there, but you'll have to visit the individual pages and re-cast your vote. My sincerest apologies for those who already voted, but I really couldn't figure out how to preserve the ratings while working in the new, improved features.

Finally, I've received emails from visitors willing to offer photographs or contributions to the website.

Well, I've exploited the new commenting feature to allow visitors to submit a waterfall review (including the ability to upload a photo) of a particular waterfall they've been to.

Comments could be about any waterfall (including those we've yet to explore). If the post is especially useful to other visitors, we could even allow referral links (subject for approval of course). [read more]

2008-08-27 21:10 - The Waterfalls Book Library

To better inform you of the books that are on Amazon regarding waterfalls (including places we haven't been to or waterfall books we have yet to read), we've created the International Waterfalls Book Library and the Regional Waterfalls Book Library.

We hope this is a very useful resource if you're looking for guidebooks or coffee table books on the wonderful topic of waterfalls.

The International Book Library covers waterfall books of destinations outside the USA.

The Regional Book Library covers waterfall books of destinations within the USA.

Or, you can follow the link below and jump to our Books and Maps section, which not only has links to these libraries, but also links to other books and maps that we've personally used and reviewed!

2008-08-29 14:58 - Kaieteur Falls is next

This was a personal must-see waterfall for me. So much so that we're willing to spend our Labor Day Weekend just to go see this waterfall in the middle of Hurricane Season.

Speaking of which, it looks like Tropical Storm Gustav is headed northwest towards the Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Hanna looks to be headed towards the east coast of Florida! We'll keep our fingers crossed about these potential complications to our weekend trip.

We hope to update the site with photos, descriptions, and perhaps even a travel story about this attraction next week. Stay tuned...
