Good luck with your project and I think documenting your thought process during the build and sharing it with other like minded sailor/builders will pay you many dividends in brainstorming solutions and qualifying decisions that later on may be forgotten.
The one part I don’t understand is why someone would need to register their email in order to read your blog
. I personally would be wary of giving my email details out to a new project unless I monitored it for a while to get a sense of those who administers it.
Do you think registering people enhances your own security
to give out personal info on the main blog?
Once I knew that the owner of the blog is serious and I have something useful to contribute, I would then register and try to help, but I would need to monitor
In the meantime, doing as Andy suggests makes more sense to start with as I trust CF because they have a good history
of management and they protect my email from spammers.
Just a thought!
