Part of my planning for the XC ride this year is to recruit others to join me, create a living scrapbook for my memories, and hopefully inspire a few folks to take on a dream of theirs as others have inspired me. To hopefully help save someone else some time here is pieces I learned so far.
Choosing a Brand or Domain name and make sure you can get all the different tools named after it secured:
- Domain registration: $1.18 a year – frequent special through GoDaddy
- Twitter: free
- Google Groups: free
- Facebook: free
- Email: free – using Google Apps for less than 50 users you get the email, calendar, docs, sites, and more for free
- Web Hosting: free – I started with Google Sites but then moved to WordPress
Blogs that attracted me were those with a Brand that quickly conveyed to the point information, nice pictures, and an inspiring journey. Thanks for the inspiration – Pathlesspedaled, GoingSlowly, FatCyclist, VeloDramatic, OntheGoodRoad, theOasisofmySoul, Tynan.
