Re: Sailing Blogs

As many others have posted here, there are gazillions of sailing blogs out there. A few shine through in my opinion; with excellent writing, good shots, and a story behind the usual humdrum of fixing things, days at sea, just another tropical island or long walk to the shop from the dock...!

Re: Sailing Blogs

Well at the risk of being yet another shameless self promoter, I would like to invite you all to My Nauti Mind- I'd Rather be Sailing . Its about the ups and downs of being a new boat owner here in Coastal BC.

To the others that have posted links, I have enjoyed many of them so thank you for sharing.

Fair winds!

Re: Sailing Blogs

One of the blogs I have been following for a couple of years is Anne's blog on The Spice Necklace . But I haven't been able to read any posts since January this year. In her last post, they were leaving Trinidad.

I've searched the net but haven't heard any untoward news. Just curious if anybody knows what's up with Anne Vanderhoof and her blog?

My favorite:

Amy Schaefer | Sailfeed

Amy writes about her voyages with her husband and her two school-age girls. I think they're currently in New Zealand. A must read for anyone who is thinking about cruising with kids. I don't read many blogs as the quality of the writing is likely to be less than stellar. Amy's blog is different; the woman is obviously a talented writer and it really shows. You get a real sense of her family. Always puts a smile on my face.

Re: Sailing Blogs

Ok I guess I'll go for the shameless plug as others have.
We are getting going on a new blog/web site. Although we are not currently traveling we wanted to let others hear about the challenges of getting ready to cut the lines and head out as well as being able to follow us when we do leave. The blog is new so check back for updates. We will be adding photos, written content, and videos as we go. I am trying to add new stuff weekly at minimum. Feedback is always welcome even if there is something you do not like.

Thanks for the link to 'The Monkey's Fist.' Exactly what I've been looking for.

Re: Sailing Blogs

More sailing blogs than you could hope to follow - 120 at last count - here: The Monkey's Fist: Collecting Cruisers' Perspectives: Our Barrel of Monkeys Also on this site are blog posts sorted by specific topic. If you're just interested in, say, how a variety of different bloggers approach the subject of fitness aboard, or traveling with cats or dogs, you can find those posts by going the the "home" tab and scrolling down.

Re: Sailing Blogs

i dont follow blogs--i will follow folks i know are travelling, if and when i have their website addresses--but i for the most part am not a fan of blogs.
i have a website i use for keeping in touch with family and friends -- but i am not a blog writer by or in any sense. i do tell folks what i like about places and what is fun and how the sunsets and sunrises are--things my mom wants to know. and i can show her pictures of my trip there. but i dono t request folks to read it nor do i advertise anything on or for it.
