WHAT: CliptheTrip.com offers CLIPS, or a Current Local Information Pack, for destinations around the world. Locals share where to eat and what to see in their favorite locations. Maps, addresses, phone numbers, websites and sharing capabilities are the cherry on top.

HITS: The local flavor stands out, and you can tell when you've found an article written by someone who is passionate and knowledgeable about the area. I enjoyed "Cool, Creative, Chilled Paris: a la East London" by Victoria and "Dinner at Dinner? My Favorite New Places to Eat in London," by Reshma.

MISSES: The site is so new that it needs populating. I found little content for big American cities, which is great for travel writers or those who want to try their hand at making some money by writing for CliptheTrip. I'd like to see a tag cloud or map on the home page that shows new users which destinations have content and how much, so those just browsing know where to look.
