Ok so basically I want to keep a travel blog(funny enough about my travels)that will enable me to upload photo's and my travel experience as I go along. It will essentially cut out those bulk emails to all my contacts.
Has anyone used a particular site before and would recommend it ? Preferably free if possible.
psssssssssssst...have you tried Travllerspoint?
I set a blog up for the exact same reason on my recent trip and it worked a treat. I used http://www.blogger.com but travellerspoint has all the same features and is just as free...
Fyi, one specific benefit of keeping a travel blog on Travellerspoint is that you already have a captive audience of keen travellers. And hey, we might feature your entries if they're good enough See here for the details on our blog system: http://www.travellerspoint.com/blog.cfm
