Geocaching Blogs Or Personal Websites?

98 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there keep a blog or personal website for their geocaching adventures? If so, how about sharing the web addresses or some info? I'm thinking about starting a blog, but have never done it before.

Here is ours...

 

Our weblog

and our personal page...

 

Our Geocache page

 

Not much yet as we just started... but worth checking out for ideas.

I have a website in the late planning stages. I guess I should get on the stick and start construction.

 

It will contain a blog and a place to track my upcomming geocoins.

 

It will also be the focus point of my One Degree of Separation project that will be launched at my event to be held the night before GW4. ;)

My webpage, but it isn't very up to date today. I've been kind of sidelined with work of all things.

I see some of you have your geocaching status bar in your blog/website. How do you get that on there?!!? :rolleyes:

1- go to gc.com and go to your "my account" page

2- Half way down on the right side of the page look for the book "account options"

3- Third link on the box is "view my status bar"

 

There you can edit it with either the tradional style or Signal style and what it says under it. It will provide the HTML code also so you can use it on your blog.

My blog is here. I've gotten away from it for a few months. I hope to catch up soon.

For blogging, I just started a couple of weeks ago actually.

I'm still setting it up. No real bloggage posted there yet. Maybe I will start to spew some stuff to the blog page now that I have completed some updates to my web site.

 

Or should I say... web sites.

http://www.mtn-man.net

http://www.untiluru.com (How do you like that one eleri&blade!)

http://www.ourhouseofpets.com

 

And who knows what I will do with this last one. I am still undecided. I only grabbed it last night about midnight, so for some it still may not resolve back to the page it is supposed to go to for a day or two. It already works for me. I'm sure it will be redirected elsewhere soon...

No, I'm Spartacus! :D

My geocaching site is in my signature. My personal site is eponymous. I'm only posting this because I'd planned to spend some time over the holidays updating stuff and I'm hoping it'll shame me into doing so.

 

As it turns out, though, I don't have a lot in the way of shame.

 

Huh.

That depends on your personal blog site, I use xanga and it has a section where I can copy/paste my HTML code.

I had fun looking at all the sites listed above. Here's mine.

Nice site! Wish I knew more about creating a website, but the best I can do is a blog. :D

I know there are a lot of great personal websites out there where people share their own geocaching experiences and advice. Please feel free to contribute your own sites to the Geocacher-U Personal Website Links list HERE.

 

I've just put this section together so it doesn't have a lot of links yet. Please use the form at the bottom of the page to submit your own site...give a few details about it...and give me some time to get it updated.

 

Thanks,

 

Bret

I've started my blog in November and only have a couple of postings so far. I've just submitted it to Geocacher-U Personal Website Links as suggested above. We'll see if it gets listed there.

 

My "Geocaching Muse by Nudecacher" blog contains ramblings about the sport of geocaching, geocachers, and the Groundspeak official geocaching site.

I was about to create a thread for this very topic, until my searches turned this one up. We have a Geocaching blog that you can click on in our signature.

We do a little of both. We have a geocaching website with a "Featured Cache" each week. On the page with the featured cache we have what is less of a blog and more like "Milestones",first cache, 25th cache etc...

There are four of us trying to keep it fresh. I have been caching for several years and one of the guys in our group is new to it. We started this site under "Tales From The Surface" as a group project.

We are looking for someone to write articles on geocaching, you know do's, don'ts, how to's. If your interested in submitting an interesting cache or writing an article check out the site!

I use a back page of my server for a google map that gives me the lat/lon coordinates. Just double click where you want coordinates. You can also place a reference marker on the page from the form at the top.

www.samirsky.com/geocaching

It is helpful to me if I am finding a cache in the woods. I put the cache coordinates in the form at the top, and then plan my route by picking coordinates of the trails.

 

I also bought the domain www.yapidka.com. It stands for a somewhat obscure acronym meaning 'Yet Another Park I Didn't Know About'. I set it up as a forum. It is really just for my own notes, but anyone else it welcome to use it if they want.

Hi,

 

I'm thinking of doing a review of geocaching blogs - so I thought I'd revive this thread as a starting point.

 

A lot of the blogs seem to have died after a few months - I'd like any links to good blogs that are still current.

 

Thanks,
