Travel Onion peels off skin to reveal daily deal move
Each week, the site will post and send and out an e-mail newsletter highlighting the best deals from major daily deal sites such as Groupon, LivingSocial, Jetsetter, Travelzoo, and SniqueAway.
The goal is to spare travelers having to read through multiple flash-sale sites to find a deal. It does the homework for them, so to speak.
The previous blog-aggregation focus was, in Simmons’ words:
“a bit of a miscalculation. We invested time and effort into the previous site focusing primarily as a blog collections site with some travel contests and no deals. In previous years we underestimated the public’s desire to find deals and contests and now hope to capture their attention through our new, re-launched site.”
In 2011, Simmons created booking site, building on the success of his other consumer-facing site . He is one of the most prominent independent travel agents in the US to fully embrace digital media.
Simmons says Travel Onion currently receives 10, 000 unique visitors a month, and he aims to scale that up.
Travel Onion is a self-funded company that has three other team members and makes money through advertising and affiliate fees from bookings. Its strategy is to monetize primarily through ads.

How far does your onion travel?
by Froma Harrop
Providence Journal Columnist
An onion grown in Iowa travels an average 35 miles to the Iowa supermarket. An onion from the usual sources in other states treks an average 1,759 miles to the Iowa store. Thought you might want to know. We're talking "food miles," a growing concern of governments, environmentalists and gourmets. Food miles refers to the distance food travels from farm to plate. Locally grown food is generally a good thing.
Romney travels back in time to kill liberal versions of himself...the onion!? | Yahoo Answers
I don't care about Romney's past, its what he does from this moment on. I hope he continues to sound Conservative but now we shall see how he stands up to the left. Either he will back his Conservative stance by defending the right or he will tact left and start sounding like the loser John McCain did when he lost to Obama by not attacking the left back in 2008.
Next chapter of this 2012 campaign is: Romney vs. the Occupy Movement.
