Converting the Blogentries into a diary

Travel Forums System Talk Converting the Blogentries into a diary

Is it possible to create a diary out of all the various blogentries made, without map, adverts, comments etc. ?

You can export your blog to a PDF or HTML document, and exclude maps and comments when doing so, yes. I don't know if that's quite what you mean, but have a look at it to see if it meets your requirements. In your blog management section, click on the "Manage" tab, and then in the dropdown on "Print".
(I don't know for certain that ads are excluded, but I'd very strongly suspect so. For comments and maps, there's specific checkboxes to exclude them.)

In the ancient past of travellerspoint, we also had a precursor to the blog system, which was called a diary. A diary could be converted to a blog - but if that's what you're asking about, then no, a blog can't be converted back to a diary.

This is fun . . . My Journal with photos. I love it. Thank you Sander.

I usually write the text about my travels as an email with no illustrations or maps. I then illustrate the basic text file on a site like this one. If I want to, I can always go back to the basic email text and start over.

I actually write out a journal entry each day in pencil in a composition book. When we get home, I transfer the hand written entries to the computer and print it out. I can turn it into a blog here and I usually create a coffee table book on Shutterfly. By the time I'm finished with all this, I can remember everything we did in pretty good detail. It's fun . . . and beats dusting.

Like Sally (Beausoleil) I journal as I go, but on my iPad using One Note, so on my return I access that from my PC, tidy it up and add to it where needed (e.g. I might research some facts about places visited) and then use that as the basis for the blog, adding photos. I keep the One Note journal as a word file but I also download the Travellerspoint blog as a pdf. I like to wait before doing that and to include the comments as they often add something to the content that I don’t have in my own file.
