Do you travel a lot? Whether its a quick weekend escape, or a trek around the globe, a journal of your adventures is a great way to share your travel highlights, keep in touch with friends and savor your memories.
Free isn’t always free.
A good place to start for many travel adventurers is WordPress.com and Tumblr. Two microblogging websites that provide free blog space for you to start filling up. This is a great start if you don’t want the hassle of monthly or yearly payments, and just want some space online to share your travel blog.
Just remember there are limitations including size of content and layout, links you add and the simplicity of expanding your website.
Many of our friends and family have created a space online only to discover they want to utilise it more, create even more content, or perhaps even moneytise their efforts. In this case, we recommend a self hosted blog rather than your free WordPress or Tumblr options.
