- Who has their own blog then?
Another wordpress user here, host it myself though rather than have a wordpress blog. Most of my family and friends are in other countries, prefer to have something that they can go and look at as and when they want rather than emailing. Am trying to keep a record of bike routes there too.Posted 10 years agoterrahawkSubscriber
even though most of the stuff I put on mine is only really interesting to…er…me…looking at the stats I do get a lot of traffic these days.
So someone’s interested. Plus it lets my mates know that I’m not dead.
The key is, you’ve got to update it regularly. Which of late I haven’t done.Posted 10 years agoOllyMember
i do, but rarely update it nowadays. infact i have 2, a bike one and a non bike one, they link together quite nicely i think (im quite proud of my development of the basic templates)
must remember to set my new phone up! now i can send MMS messages, i can post images to it “on the fly” and stuff, which may encourage me to use it more….
or possibly clicky my name on the forum? (the green names have a link associated with them i believe)Posted 10 years agobeamersSubscribercoffeekingMember
I have a couple of my own sites (not blogs), I use them for disseminating info on a few hobbies I have. Judging by the comments/content added by members they’re not overly watched, but judging by the bandwidth used most people just sign up for info and then go on their way.Posted 10 years ago
I’ve got one, http://scottishmountainbikeguides.blogspot.com/. I’ve only had it for about a month or so – basically intend using it to log ride reports and keep customers up to date on the latest news, along with any other crap as I see fit.
I’m going to get the website guy to do his stuff and put it somewhere on the main website soon.

We set up a wordpress blog – http://www.innerhaven.net – when we were renovating our old house, turning it into accommodation.
For us, it was a good way of getting on the internet’s radar before we were up and running. We still get folk visiting the blog and sending us comments – which reminds me, I better update it before it drops off the edge of cyber space!Posted 10 years ago
I’ve just started one. I shan’t be revealing it’s identity to anyone yet until I feel happy enough letting people into my thoughts (whereupon they’ll ignore me anyway).
Drop me a DM on Twitter when you feel like going public. Maybe it’ll spur me into updating mine.Posted 10 years agoStonerMember
we used one to keep friends/family informed during our cycle tour. I also link to it to pass on the information in there about kit etc when people ask about lightweight cycle touring. Unfortunately Ive let my fotopic account lapse so embedded photos are no longer linked.
I also used blogger to report on the Pinder v Fox case at the end of last year. Seemed the best medium at the time since there were far to many ignoramuses on here to leave forum threads on the subject unfettered by idiot posts.Posted 10 years agotwinklydaveSubscriber
i used to write stuff for on-one, mostly about why i didn’t win races in a creative way 🙂
someone once said something positive about what i wrote, which was just about the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me 🙂
i also spout boring crap in a poorly constructed way on my own blog, which is used more as a way of letting my family know i’m not dead…Posted 10 years agoAidanMember
I have a personal one, and I try to write about relatively interesting things rather than getting into introspection. When I’m just riding and hanging about at home, I don’t post on it much but recently I’ve been getting about a bit and trying to get interest from companies to help me do crazy races. TBH, after Iditarod I probably won’t be able afford to even keep my bike maintained let alone race for the rest of the year so the sponsorship angle is an important one for me.
I should be getting around to writing about the Finnish Winter Swimming Championships sometime todayPosted 10 years ago
