Labatt - thanks for those references, I will look into blogging and the FeedBurner (which now seems to belong to Google!). I starting putting together a rudimentary website last week, adding pages after work. The site is SV Zanshin homepage if you feel like taking a peek. I hope to get it finished, or at least presentable, in the next week. I've seen a lot of features available, the one I am working on now is to use Google maps in the site to allow photos to be shown by location on the map; but it is more work than I thought.

Zanshin.. Check out Picasa (free from google).. it is easy to tag, caption and geotag the photos offline and then upload them once you get to port. We used it during our 5.5 year trip and it made all the difference. Picasa also allows you to geotag albums which makes it really easy to map them all.

I developed a set of free utilities called BlurbBits. Our maps use it as well as our blog. I HIGHLY recommend using Picasa or flickr to share your photos online.. it gives you a central spot to store your photos along with captions, and is easy to map.

Chris,

thanks for the links and reference. I downloaded Google's API description and programmed around in PHP a bit to get my interactive map loaded; I created a MySQL database and geocoded my pictures so that all I need to do now in order to add pictures to my map is add entries to the database, which is a piece of cake. See Caribbean Google map with Pictures for what I did. Since I have my own domain I can keep my pictures there instead of on an external system such as picasa or the like.

For a photo album on your domain I like to use the freeware JAlbum. It works on Mac, Windows, and Linux OS's. It writes the code for you and allows you to manage your album from your hard drive or your NAS drive. I am using it for my newborn daughter's pictures. This way I don't hve to email the hundreds of pics we have out to the family. There are many functions built in to the different skins. Great to have for pics, but you will need to add a blog to the site for text updates.

Pretty sweet site Zanshin! Looks great, mine would be much worse! I like wordpress because I hate coding...
