{?} The Travelling Blog Posts {?}

Okay, dear readers….this Girl needs your opinion today! I am trying to figure out a bit of a dilemma:

  • I blog each and every day – have been doing so for the better part of 8 months.
  • The Family and I are about to embark on a much needed vacation that will take us into the good ‘ol U.S of A (not our homeland!).
  • We will be gone for 4 (FOUR) whole days.
  • Our destination will take us to a region where internet/wifi connections are somewhat questionable… “iffy” …downright unreliable.  
  • Also, because we will be in a different country, my smart phone will be useless!  (no iPhone WordPress app)

So.  Yeah.  Seeing as my daily posts are quite reflective of my mood or what ever has caught my attention, my topics are usually (somewhat) spontaneous…

How do I approach this?

I could either:

Use the handy-dandy post scheduler.  I would have to be uber-organised and think up 4 simple posts.  I would then have to work out a pre-fixed time for each one to be published.  This also involves merely crossing my fingers and praying that I clicked on all the right settings.  (this makes me nervous – really nervous.)

~ Or ~

Wing it and try to find a wifi connection I can trust each day.  (REALLY nervous about this approach as well!!!)

Aaaargh!!!  Help!!!

What would you do???

(and no, simply not blogging for almost a week is not an option!)

  1. Sounds like you have a lot of good advice here – I too like the idea of a guest blogger- but maybe they don’t post daily like you do- you could give ideas to someone close to you or another writer that you want to give an opportunity to get some exposure. You can still keep a log (I know it’s old fashioned withou the ‘b’ added!) and share with your readers when you return.

    Enjoy your holiday!

    1. Thanks! I agree – the guest blogger-thing is a great idea all around: just wish I’d thought of it sooner! There’s always next vacation to try it out!!! 🙂

  2. I have been in the same situation … sometimes it’s good to take “blogging holiday” as well … otherwiswe it is possible at times to “borrow” somebody elses signal, if you can connect with an unsecurred network in your area … and internet cafes come to mind as well. Love, cat.

    1. Thank you for your input, Cat! I will keep my radar on alert for a signal I can borrow. A “blogging holiday” seems to be the general consensus…I dunno though….I must admit that I can’t imagine a day without hitting publish! 🙂

  3. Upload WordPress. They did an outstanding, incredibly outstanding job upgrading it. I was able to post my two recent entry using wifi. I also been reading blogs using this reader upgrade they have. Actually, im replying right now using the App.

  4. I second the guest posting idea. When I was away for my surgery, I jotted down some thoughts and started some posts in Word documents. I posted a going away post and then promised to return with the gory details. Do you have a dear friend or sibling who could fill in with your updates from the road? No photos but at least you’d be checking in somehow. Enjoy your trip!

  5. similar dilemma for me coming up — my plan is to write something in the moment, as it were, to capture thoughts on a daily basis. If I get the opportunity to post, great, if not, it’s saved and gets posted as soon as available.
    Have fun in the States, hope you find us welcoming, and hope you make it to Michigan!

    1. So – you’re saying I should lighten up and what ever happens, happens? 🙂 I love travelling in the States – always feel quite welcomed!! We won’t make it to Michigan this time though. Just New York State! Appreciate your input, I just may follow your advice!! Cheers!

  6. I go on extended trips and have the same dilemma. I’ve been asked to do “guest” posts for other fellow bloggers while they go on trips, but have yet to do that for my own blog… It’s an option for you!
    Have a fun time in my homeland!
