Hi, am thinking about using the Blog feature of the site but the stuff I was going to include was from past holiday trips(based on memories, trips, photos etc.) Wondering if there is an etiquette to posting stuff that would be out of date or is this just a stupid thread to be starting?

Well i say get that Blog up and running so we can all check it out.
Whether your travels are new or old its always good to look back on what you did and its always good for others to get some good information from it

I posted a bunch of stuff going as far back as 1997 in my blog. No one has complained about it, so I say go for it!

Very soon (as in, I'm halfway through implementing it right now) you can specify about what timeperiod a blog entry is (and this will have some benefits for integration with other things). So when you write blog entries about old things, my advice is to keep the "entry date" that's there right now as the real posting date.

Well I have finished my first blog and am working on a second. You can find the first one here http://mostrim.travellerspoint.com/if you are interested. It's about my holiday in Singapore in 2003.
