Hey Everyone,

I am booked up for going on an overland trip from London to Darwin next year and wanted to keep an online blog for people to follow the trip, what are the best blogging websites to use?

I guess you mean besides starting a Travellerspoint blog; clearly the best one out there? :)

Agree with Sam I Am, TP is a good blogging site. I don't have a blog, but I really like TP blogs because I can use the "contents" option to read a blog in the order it was written, first entry first.

Ah I never even realised there was a blog section of this website, well pointed out!

As much as i love TP's for its informative and friendly forums, the best Travel Blog website is - http://www.travelblog.org/

So I'm curious: what makes it better? What are we missing or doing wrong here which we can improve to become the best in your eyes?
(There've been a couple of sites the last few years which have done comparisons between travel blogs, and travellerspoint always came out in the first place, so I'm expecting it to be interesting to see where you put a different emphasis than they did.)

To be honest, that is a great system, but like Sander I am curious what you feel they are doing better than Travellerspoint? There's a few (2) things I know we don't have that they do and that I know we should have, but there's also things I know none of our competitors are doing :) But as someone who clearly uses both I'd be very keen to learn from you on how we can improve here!

There's a comparison of different travel blogging hosts on izunotravel which highlights some of the differences (although note that it might be somewhat dated).

I hope this doesnt become a beat up on Travellerspoint thread. I really love what you guys are doing and your doing it very well. But..haha you knew that was coming. I still find it a pain to make blog posts with pictures. By the time Ive got through making a million entries into, where the picture was taken, the title, bla bla bla Then I go to make my post and when I hit img I get a screen with nothing but either numbers if I havent given the picture a name, or names that I cant remember anymore what its of anyway. To make a picture post I have to either open travellerspoint in two browsers so I can go from one to the other figuring out what pic is what or go through the process of checking one picture, nope not that one, check another. Sometimes these things are easy to deal with, but sometimes in some foreign internet shop it makes it a real hassle.

This is one of the highest priorities for improvement now. Right behind public commenting; which I'm working on right now :)

Goodie!!! When you do that, it will really be an awesome blog site. I think its already the cleanest looking and running forums...not that I ever look anywhere else of course.
