Creating ShermansTravel Blogs was a no-brainer in the eyes of James H. Sherman, founder and CEO of ShermansTravel Media.  “In this recessed economy, time is the new luxury.  The last thing you want to do is spend hours trying to get your finger on the pulse of what’s new in the world of travel,” said Sherman.  “Consumers are not looking for the cheapest travel deal.  They want bold, new experiences, they want to stay in the hottest new hotels and, by the way, they want to do it for less and without spending a lot of time doing research.”
