It’s nice to be noticed. A couple of weeks ago Matt-Gibson.org was TravelPod’s blog of the day. TravelPod offers free blogs to travelers who want to share their adventures with their friends online.
It’s very easy to use; great for new bloggers. You can upload as many photos and videos as you want, make travel maps, and do all sorts of other dorky travel stuff. Of course, TravelPod has to make money. To do this, it displays travel-related ads alongside your blog. You do have the option to remove the ads; purchase an enhanced membership for about $39.95USD per year. The enhanced membership also gives you control over who is and isn’t allowed to see your blog. Not a bad deal. Actually, had I known about it when I first moved to Taiwan, I totally would have signed up.
