Summer Web 2.0 Technology for Travel and Vacation

Summer is a great time to learn how to blog and use other Web 2.0 technologies. If you are going on a trip or vacation, why not blog about it? Blogs provide information on an event or topic and let you share updates, travel information and photos with friends and family via the web. They can follow you and comment on your trip and adventures. Weebly is a simple, free and easy to use website that allows you to create a webpage and blog. www.weebly.com

Nick Scheidies writes in The 20 Biggest Benefits of Blogging that blogging helps you become a better writer, become a published author, build a network, learn on demand skills and tell about your ideas. 

Google Earth Tour Builder is a great way to document your trip and map your story.  Using Google Earth you can pick your locations on the map, add photos, text and video and share live on the web. https://tourbuilder.withgoogle.com/

Do you make lists to get ready for your trip or vacation? In Evernote you can create a list and add checkboxes to help get organized. Evernote is a digital storage box where you create pages and digital notebooks and store them in the cloud. You can access your Evernote from any web browser, iPhones, iPad Touch, Android, Windows and iOS tablets. To learn more about Evernote and what you can do with it, go to https://evernote.com/
