In preparation of our travels, and not being without some Internet/blogging facility, I/we have purchased a new ultra-portable laptop to take with us. I have been doing a little research (at work :-)) to assess the options available for storing and uploading photos, videos etc. and I think (please feel free to comment) that the best option is to take a laptop and whenever we hit a wireless hotspot, we can blog and upload photos as a backup.
Here’s the plan – Windows Live Writer for offline blogging, which I’m writing this post with. Picasa WebAlbums for photo storage and Google Video for video storage. I know that hotspots are going to be few and far between – but there must be some at least.
This Windows Live Writer allows you to save all your post in draft and upload when you get connected. So there may be nothing for weeks and suddenly a mass of info…although with my record for updating you are probably thinking…ya right!
Getting excited. We still have to work out our route, which we will be posting on here for you to provide suggestions/comments. It could be months before we sell the house, so we are in no rush. From next week, and once the house has finally hit the mass market, we will sit down and start planning.
I’ll keep you posted.
