  • Antarctic Blogs?

    I've been reading this antarctic blog for the past year, but the guy finally went home. :sad: I loved reading his posts, they were so informative and the photos ... :shock:

    Does anyone know of any other good, active blogs by people in antarctica?

        Those look good!

        If any of this year's winterover people start blogs, please post links, It'll be nice to watch for an entire year.

            I just read through that one, the guy is going to be there for 2 and a half years! I don't think I could handle that, but it must be a great experience.

              Hi Dracling - actually, he has just been there for two and a half years, he's due to leave in February 2006 I think, so unfortunately it's not a "live" blog for much longer. There's lots of great stuff in it though.

              This one:

              http://www.polarwandering.co.uk/

              is currently live (as of date of this post) it's by Layla Curtis who has been awarded the 2006 Artists and Writers Fellowship Award, a joint partnership between the British Antarctic Survey and Arts Council England's International Artists Fellowships Programme. It's not a blog as such and is "arty" rather than anything else. I think I prefer real-life blogs to artistic impressions though.

                I agree with you about that blog, that site took a long time to load on my T1-equivalent connection and it wasn't worth it. Are there even any text entries on that site?

                Give me a down-to-earth blog any day, here are two nice ones I found:

                http://www.markgwilson.com/brrr/

                http://tblogs.bootsnall.com/luke/ <- from a field, camp, the first blog I've found.

                          Having looked into this somewhat, it seems it's not too difficult (famous last words?) to set up a blog within a web site.

                          So if you are due to spend any time in Antarctica, from weeks to a year or more, then I could set you up with a blog of your own on this website to run while you are South.

                          Reasons to do this?
                          • I get the headache of setting it up - not you.
                          • No advertising in the way that you get with other blogging software, there will be a (text only) link somewhere near the header to this website and to a blog-index page (if it ever gets that far!)
                          • Free - I'll say that again, because it's worth saying twice - FREE
                          What do I get from this? My intention is to build the definitive Antarctic website for anyone interested in the continent and by having such blogs under the main domain name, then it's all in one place and easier to find.
