Hi guys,

Just wondered if anyone could help me out?

I'm doing my dissertation for my degree on an on-line travelers blog.

It would great if people could put down a few points on what would make the perfect travelers blog... I'm looking for ideas on functions the site could do etc.

Many Thanks,

James Bradbury-Willis

Hi James

I'll get all the obvious stuff out of the way :)

- Emoticons
- Means of inserting photos into the script
- Archives for your entries
- Interactive world map

Good luck with the dissertation! :)

Have a look at www.ballofdirt.com - I think thats pretty near to perfect! I especially like the map .. so you can visualise the trip. Being able to upload pictures along with the text is a big plus, it took me a while to find a blog site that would actually allow that.

Amri: In case you didn't know, that's allowed right here as well - go to control panel, photo gallery, upload a new photo to upload photos, and then control panel, travel blog, new entry and click on the [img] button to select them into the weblog entry.

Ballofdirt seems cleaner somehow. Also has an interactive globe which allows you to map your progress. Also I believe that the amount of pictures you can upload is unlimited, but (for me) the nicest thing is that you can purchase a CD of your travellogue so you can always have it, (rather than having to download it yourself)
The minus points seem to be that there is no domain name allocation, which would be nice for family and friends to remember, rather than having to find a link in an email or whatever.
