Best touring blog sites?
« on: August 21, 2011, 09:54:13 pm »
I've just been kicked off crazyguyonabike, but would like to keep my journal on-line somewhere.

What's the next-best site(s)?  Has anyone used more than one of blogspot, livejournal, etc., and what are the relevant advantages and disadvantages of each?

I see a lot of people using wordpress for bike touring journals.

Would be interesting to hear why you got thrown off crazyguyonabike?

webs.com is ok and free, or you could consider buying your own domain name and making your own website with something like joomla or wordpress...

No, please, let's not discuss CGOAB here. If you really must, and I do not recommend it, go read it over there:

As I dont read CGOAB then it was a fair question, and this was a funny read. But I agree, leave it there 8)

I use a combination of my website, (www.twowheeledexplorer.org), blog (http://twowheeledexplorer.blogspot.com/), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/TwoWheeledExplorer) Timbuctu.me (a social network for missionaries) and SPOT Adventures for anyone who wants to track me in real time. Although I have a spot on CGOAB, I have never used it because it takes all evening to keep the others updated! ;) Consquently, the FB page gets the most info and attention. I can update it from (the little, tiny QWERTY keyboard on) my cell phone. The SPOT Tracker is pretty much hands-free after you turn it on.

Much of my travels are Christian missions trips, so I try to keep our supporters and team member's families as informed as possible on our progress.

Ride safe,
Hans
