We have been using Talkspot.com for more than 6 years.
It was developed by Ken and Roberta Williams. They were the founders of Sierra Games. Ken and Roberta are now cruising the world on their 68' Nordhaven 'San Souci'.
started as a free site, however it has grown into something bigger. We now pay a very small annual fee but for this we get our own dot com name and unlimited size as well as a lot of very usefull 'widget' tools and very good technical support.
The best thing about the host is that if you need any technical support Ken has a team that jump straight to it. We have often PM,ed Ken and even when he was in the middle of a crossing from Alaska
he personally responded and gave me the advice I needed.
There are a lot of host sites out there however I think Talkspot is the only one owned and operated by someone who is sympathetic to a sailors
We have been living aboard
and sailing through Asia
for the past few years. We can update blogs with a simple email
even from sailmail.
We use a little Photoshop and Microsoft Word and that is all we need.
Our site is www.sobraon.com
We have even been able to make a little side money
selling Pirate and Rhum T-shirts from it.
As you can tell we like Talkspot. It is so much more than just a blog site. The program was written so that any one can use it ..
