RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Here are the links to my website and blog....However, I am like a lot of folks and leave my camera at home or don't think it is worth a picture at the time, and then I can kick myself for not taking more pictures.

WEBSITE: http://www.luckyfind3.com/

BLOG: http://www.luckyfind3.blogspot.com/

You can get to one from the other, and vice-versa.....Enjoy!

Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

*Hi Woodsong, I have put a rendition of our annual King Crab hunt on BCBoatnet Forum, with pics . It is under Commander Pileting With Pacific Joule 2011
I hope you enjoy, would appreciate if you were to log in and give a comment as I would like a better idea as what other boaters would like to here, and see. My plan is to try and put something out for each* trip we do this year . The next one should be in April.

When you are on that sight also check out The Summer of 2010 - Stalwyn By Old Salt,
Near the bottom of the Commander page. He puts out some very good stuf on his travels well worth the read.
Safe And Happy Boating. Pj.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Does anyone else find uploading pictures to blogspot entirely frustrating?* Is it because I'm using internet explorer versus firefox, or is it simply user error?*

I am having issues moving, resizing and alignment of photos once I get them uploaded.*

Is it me?* Or do you guys have the same issues?

(BTW...I brought us up to date today...photos may or may not be visible)

Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

blogger can be a PAIN to upload pictures. Your two best options, IMO:
1) Plan in advance what pics you want to use and upload them all prior to writing any text. Upload the LAST picture you want to show up on the finished blog FIRST, and upload the first picture you want seen last (i.e. upload in opposite order). Once you do that, then you can go back in and add text, captions, etc.
2) Upload your pictures to a free image hosting site such as photobucket.com. You can then upload the html code for the pictures there at your leisure and paste them anywhere you want.

if you try and type up the blog text and add pictures after the text and move them around you will get frustrated very quickly.

another little trick- once you upload your pics to your blog you can have them show up here without uploading again via the img code. That saves some work when wanting to post pics on other sites.

Like this pic off your blog for example that you took of Baker and I believe Doug consulting about some of the inner workings of TF!

*Bess, since you haven't gotten too far in developing your blog, you may want to consider changing host.* I use Wordpress, and don't have any problems with uploads.* I also like it because you can post different cruises as "pages".* That allows clicking on specific areas with less scrolling.* I don't know much about blogger as I have only used Wordpress and Talkspot.* YMMV

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Are you using blogspot's updated editor? You can find it on the Settings Tab - basic- global settings, you have to select "new editor" over the "old editor". I just came across it about a month ago by accident. I find it preferable to the previous editor. You may be using it already.
