We've got 3 open spots for free WordPress powered trail blogs that we will be launching in the coming months ... these slots will be grandfathered in when we launch, so they will stay free. This will give you the opportunity to have a nice trail blog and give us the opportunity to get feedback on what you like, don't like and what features you would like in the future.
These sites are a great way to document a thru hike, daily life or even day hikes. I attempted to use some of the other solutions out there and found out they were really out of date and not so easy to use, which is why I think these might be a nice upgrade for some folks.
There's iOS, Android and Blackberry apps so you can update your site from the field, pre-configured galleries, domain mapping (if you want to use a domain name you've purchased from a registrar like mydomain.com instead of alpinescience.com/yoursitename), customizable headers and more. We've configured all the plugins for you so when you upload images, they are optimized to maintain quality and help insure fast page loads.
