SailBlogs premium memberships unlock a wide range of features that allow you to make your blog personal, unique, and have greater flexibility. All premium memberships include:
"The ability to update via email is very key. While coming down the coast we were able to make "live" offshore updates that were much anticipated. We're in SoCal right now where internet is everywhere however I find that I still update via email." - Mark Roozendall, SV Salacia
When you post a journal entry - either through the web administration or via email with Remote - you'll have the option of including a corresponding lat/long pair. When a lat/long is added to a post, your map will automatically update to show the most current position.
In addition, your map will also show a history of position points that are "hot clickable" allowing your visitors to click on the map and view the corresponding journal entry.
Position points can be added at any time with any date through the web administration, allowing you to add historical points and fill in older parts of the journal. Maps can be customized to show the name of your boat or title of your blog.
Personal Google Earth
In addition to having a map right in your blog, SailBlogs supports Google Earth, allowing you to provide a "feed" of your blog to GE users. This enables visitors to follow your progress, see your journal entries and photos, and combine with other information all right in Google Earth. There is no special configuration for you, the GE feed gets its information directly from the XPlot engine. You simply enable the feed, and SailBlogs does the rest.
XPlot map tracking and Google Earth support by SailBlogs together add a whole new dimension to your journal and greatly enhances your journal's value to friends and family.
"SailBlogs is a great site and we're all thrilled to see where they are on the map!" - Emily Winter, daughter of Jo and Giles Winter, S/V Brother Wind
