Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Lots of folks here seem to do some neat things with their boat. *Do you have a blog you run with pictures and journal entries of your times aboard? *If so post a link so we can follow along. *I need some more winter time reading.

Please Spring- hurry up and come back to visit. *Bring with you your friends, warm breezes, chirping birds, sunshine, blue skies, and warm water.

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

Seems like a cool idea but I don't know where or how to blog.

Not sure I know where the term came from.

How about on Trawler Forum.

Mr Baker could set us up with a place for blogs.

I'm bad about pictures though.* Half the time I forget to take my camera to the boat and the other half the time I don't download the pictures for*a long time after I take them.

Mostly only my parents and brother read my blog.

Not just blogs but websites as well. Maybe not as current as it should be as we have not be using the boat as much as we would like. Oh well the 2011 season is about to get underway. Click on the link in my signature.

I'm fairly sure nobody gives a flying crap about reading about my boating experiences.

Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Here is the address to ours: Have a look.
*http://mvgumbo.blogspot.com** covers our 2010 trip from*Houma, Louisiana along the ICW*to Marathon in the Keys*then back up the east coast of FL to Stuart, across to the Gulf via Okeechobee W.W.*.*
*** This year we are leaving March 1st so will resume posting to it then. We have to be home May 1 so will only go as far as Ft Myers/*Sanibel*and have to head back from there this year.
** Keeping a blog is quite easy once you get the hang of it, and it's*Free! It*makes it easy for friends and family to keep track of where you are.
* Keep in mind these blogs read bassakwards, you have to go to the end for the first entry, work your way to the end of the trip*from the bottom up. The entries are listed on the right hand side of the page

No trawlering yet but covers our sailing trips including circumnavigation. Hopefully we*can start adding the trawler voyages in the 2nd half of this year.

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

I started a blog beginning with the launch of Delia Rosa in 2009. *Unfortunately, I only manage to post until June 26, 2009... just the first part of our journey home. *I wasn't very disciplined about writing posts when we didn't have internet access and eventually abandoned the blog. *It was a great way to stay in touch with family and friends though and keep them advised of our location.

OK so how does one blog?

Can you give a site to go to?

I would love to try it out.

SkipperDude,
www.blogspot.com is the one I use. It seems to be a Google site so you will need a google account, also free, to sign in. Then look around, the help section should take care of any quiestions.
There are other sites for blogging also.
Good luck,
Steve W.

I agree. Everyone here has experiences that others enjoy hearing about and learning from. That is one of the major purposes of this forum I think!

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

Our blog is done to let friends and family know where we are and what we are doing.* There are some none boating trips thrown in.* We love cruising with friends and family, but seldom cruise with a large group of boats.* It also keeps a diary of the trip for us.* Gonzo is probably right.* It is interesting* probably only to us and family, but we enjoy it anyway.* I do enjoy reading other boating blogs.

It was a really lucky moment to snap the right picture... glad you bothered to check into our blog - I'm only sorry that I didn't stay with it. *The blog was really a chance to stay connected with many of our friends and share some of our adventures... *and it was quite an adventure!!!
