Why Have a Cruising Blog

17 August 2012 | The Good out weights the bad
Capt Rich
Sure there are crazy people out there that will send you emails and post comments that make you question the sanity of man, but even with all the negative comments and emails I've received over the years, sharing our adventures though our blog has been actually been part of the fun, rather than an after thought. All the time things happen or we have a conversation that makes Lori and I pause and say, "we should post that on the blog", knowing that our internet family of friends and followers would like hearing about the experience or our thoughts on the matter. The friends we have made both in and out of the cruising community through our blog is simply amazing and too numerable to count. I'm also lucky enough to get a chance to meet many of our readers when I travel to the boat shows.

As we are currently motoring past the offshore oil platform Hermosa on our way back to our Port San Luis mooring, I have to ask myself, where in the world has the last 4 years gone? Looking around the local area it feels like we have only been away for 4 mouths rather than 4 years. And here you have the number one reason that makes it worth keeping up a sailblog, because no matter how long you stay out, how many great experiences you have, or how many great people you meet, one day it will be over and if your memory is anything like mine, you will smile as you go back and read your own words from years ago and remember little details of the trip you've forgotten in the bigger memory. Maybe you don't want to share your thoughts with the world on a blog and that's ok, but make a point then of keeping a daily journal during your cruise. I think it's fair to say that our blog, the memories and adventures it chronicles, has more meaning and importance to us than to our readers.

While we were in the cruise planning mode, we found inspiration and lots of valuable information by following those who had gone before and were already there. While I'm certainly not an expert on Cruising, Boating, Sailing, Parenting, and countless other topics we hope that over the years a little valuable information has found it's way to the blog. And as I say all the time, if someone like me can pull off the adventure that we can you, if that is what you want to do. Knowing that what we were doing seemed so "out there" by conventional standards it was always one of my goals on the blog to demystify and make it seem less crazy, yes, but also doable. Posting our Cost of Cruising numbers was part of that, but also just in talking about our daily living and the fact that we had no idea most of the time what we were doing...heck...that's OK...most cruisers Don't either!
