Boatblogs.com was founded by a world cruiser (Ken Williams) who developed the blogging software to support his own blog and then started providing blogging for others. Ken
has cruised over 50,000nm along with his wife and two dogs. His travels have included visiting over 25 countries, crossing the Atlantic, the Bering Sea and particpation in various rallies
such as the NAR, GSSR and Fubar. He has also written four books on world cruising.
You decide how, where, if, when you blog. Boatblogs.com provides three different methods of blogging.
You work hard to produce your blog entries. You should care that they are properly hosted and distributed. These are just a few of the companies and technologies underlying boatblogs.com
Boatblogs.com started because our founder was crossing the Atlantic, as part of the first ocean crossing power boat rally, and wanted to keep up with his family. This was 2004 and technology wasn't what it was today. He (Ken Williams) blogged used a
bgan system (at $14/megabyte) to post updates to his father. These updates were forwarded and became an early nautical internet phenomenon and the basis for a top internet blog (www.kensblog.com.)
Today, a wide variety of boaters are using boatblogs.com to publish updates from the middle of oceans. A Moby Duck just crossed the Pacific using an Iridium to post regular updates. A cruiser in Thailand on a Selene posts updates via a poor marina wi-fi system. A family venturing from Hawaii to Kodiak recently posted their voyage via boatblogs.com.
With Boatblogs.com we want you to feel free to express your creativity.
