After several years of writing adventure specific blogs – those dedicated to various trips I have taken – I have taken the plunge and begun the process of consolidating the old blogs, pictures and posts into one. I have managed to get through the quagmire of registering a domain, loading up the WordPress software and playing a bit with the appearance of a dedicated site.
I am hoping to move the blog on the recent trip to Alaska by motorcycle (http://ja4ja.wordpress.com) and the previous one on a trip to Patagonia (http://patagoniablog.wordpress.com) to this new site, as well as writings and photos on a few more diverse subjects. This will take lots of time and the independently hosted site is a bit more tricky than that hosted by WordPress, but feels great to be back blogging.
This site will include content from these previous blogs, lots of photography, a bit of armchair philosophy, equipment/book/DVD reviews, trip reports and lots of other drivel that is of little value, but lots of fun to write.
I should have the theme and many of the mechanics of the site sorted out within a few days, so if you have a mind, check back frequently to follow or get updates. Thoughts for blog post subjects or issues are welcome and thanks for reading!
