When do you "Blog"?

Curious about when bloggers like to sit and add entries.

Hi everyone,

I like to blog in the morning, when there is nobody in the house. It is quiet and I sit with my cup of coffee and start blogging, no matter what site I have belonged to in the past, this always seems like my most favorite time. I feel that I am about to relive my day or trip and there is nothing to disturb me.

When do you most like to write your journals?

I usually spend about a week in one place, my journals have gone more towards my impressions of places rather than what I did, the day I leave or shortly after I make time to write a journal. Since I travel with a laptop I can blog anytime there's a little space, peace and power 😊 Reply to this

Hi - I LOVE Travelblog and like to blog when we have some new stories to add about where we have been to and what have done, especially if we think that our friends and family back home are going to be interested. This can be at any time of the day or night - we have a laptop too and it makes the whole thing so much easier - even if there is no wireless connection, we can still write up our blogs and put photos and stories onto a disc for transfer next time we find an internet cafe. I like adding specific info that might appeal to certain chums of ours, including detail about food, museums, beaches, fashion, people we've met and accommodation we've stayed in. Feedback we get via folks from home is that they feel like they are living the travel experience with us, and that's very encouraging - it makes us want to keep the blogs coming. Reply to this

Depends on my mood. Being a senior's hard. Hate Precalculus! But thankfully The Sims 2's always there to distract me. Reply to this

Hello Nathalie 😊

I usually make my blogs from emails I send to my boyfriend, while I am travelling, so I suppose some of it is done at any convenient time of the day.

Then when I get home I make the emails into a blog. That is also done at any time of the day, between other things I am doing, as in 5 or 10 minutes at it here and there, until the blog is finished. I like alternating what I am doing during the day, because I am just not somebody who likes to do the same thing for hours at a time. Even one hour at something, and I start to get restless. Exercise works in the same way. I do 5 minutes of it several times per day, rather than one long session.

Is it odd if I tell you I usually start with my photos? I am able to visualize and relive my trip by first working on the photos , like lining them up "to tell a story". Once I have done that, writing or blogging comes very naturally as I am able to relive the trip through the pictures. And yes, I often blog late nights.

Hi Nathalie,

I also blog in the morning, with a cup of coffee beside me - but I mostly write from work in quiet moments, as the internet is quicker and there are less distractions than at home. For longer blogs I write a plan in my notepad at home in the evenings.

I usually blog the evening after I return home. From my blog you can see that most of my trips are done on motorcycle and are never more than two days. So after I have a good rest I sit down and put my thoughts together.

However I am planning a week long ride for next year and think I will have to do that one in several sessions.

Most of my blogs have been written in airports...leaving the place I've just been to. Not having any writting ambition, I believe in the first ink...putting things down as soon as they have happened, first impression...not re-write or-re-think for days....because I just want to describe my feelings, experiences...not really caring of the aftermath of it. July is going to be full of airports...and August a lot less airports but on the road... Reply to this

I always look forward to my next blog but not to the actual blogging! I am something of a Luddite and a recovering technophobe so I always enter the internet cafe with a sense of impending dread. My fears generally turn out to be well founded with most places I seem to find to blog almost always have issues, be they tech based or just from the horrible atmosphere of debilitating ennui. The amount of times I've lost whole entries from power cuts, timeouts or system failures (as well as my own incompetence) just adds to my foreboding!

I don't seem to have a particular time when I blog but I mostly wait till the sun has past the yardarm so that I can suitably fortify myself for the horrors that await!

I have recently invested in a lovely new netbook (my technophobe recovery continues apace) and hope that I can now mostly banish netcafes to the lowest circle of hell, there to reside with tuk tuk cartels, touts and my own incompetence! Reply to this

During our last big road-trip we were mainly camping without access to power-outlets or internet cafes, so I'd upload photos and blogs on the laptop each time we stopped in at a laundromat - free electricity and it gave me something to do while waiting for our clothes to wash! It was really more a timing of convenience rather than preference.

On smaller trips I take notes and write short snippets of thoughts in the evenings when we're winding down, and the start putting them all together when I'm on a plane to a new place, compiling all those together with pictures for the actual blog. A lot of airports have free wifi now which is great. Otherwise I find myself waiting for a nice rainy weekend to catch up on blogging and photo sharing, which provides a different type of blog - more a reflection and thoughts about the place rather than "did this than that" format - but for places that are close to home and/or more familiar I almost prefer it better that way.

We have been travelling this time for over 18 months and plan to be moving for at least as long again. We try to put a up a post about once a week partly to keep a kind of journal, partly to give our friends and family the option of finding out where we are and partly to provide information to anyone else interested. We travel with a lap top and, while it can be difficult to find a connection in some countries, we find one sooner or later.

It can take a while to write up a post and to select from all of the photos but it does depend on how much you want to say. We do tend to take an afternoon or even a day or two off from being tourists and travellers every now and then and spend time writing, reading and such. We are lucky to have the time to create that space. Reply to this

Hello everyone!

I'm actually not an avid blogger about my travels.

I generally like writing them in my personal notebook instead... my thoughts then go uncensored. Most of my writings are about self-improvement and personal growth.

However, I do appreciate the market for travel writers and bloggers because they give excellent advice, tips, and experiences. So thank you all travel bloggers!
