I want to make entries ahead of time for my future trip. (Sept thru December.) If I save them each as drafts can I then see the map of my planned route? I tried, with no success. I'm new at creating a blog and I'm searching for the easiest site for a non-techno-fluent person, me, to use.
Hopefully waiting, Swenigale :biggrin

You have to create the map entries and the blog entries separately. The only thing that happens is that they're automatically linked to each other based on date.

So, go to the travel map, and map out your trip, entering the correct date for each destination. That way you'll see your entire trip, with the future part of it using dashed lines rather than solid lines. Everyone will be able to see this already right now.
Then go to your blog, and create the entries, with a "Posting Time" that is the date on which you want the blog entry to become visible to the world, and the "Describes Travel From" dates being the dates that match those on your map. That way, once the blog entry becomes visible, it'll immediately show up linked to the map.
