I’m only just starting this 23 Research things adventure so have lots of catching up to do…my main experience of blogging was to create a personal blog on WordPress.com to share experiences of a 6 month trip in Europe which involved bike riding from one end of the Danube river to the other. The blog is still online https://jennybruceblog.wordpress.com/page/3/ so it’s a semi permanent record which I’ll turn into a physical photo book sometime…interesting to see the longevity of a blog and whether it ever disappears from cyberspace.
The blog was a great way of keeping in touch with lots of people, comments were instant and sharing photos was easy up to a certain size limit. WordPress was a clean straightforward tool to use. Regarding privacy a couple of comments arrived from people who weren’t given the URL so I assumed that those people found the blog by googling a relevant keyword, as administrator I could block the comments before they were public anyway.
