 Travel Journal vs Personal Travel Website: what's the difference?

What is a Personal Travel Website?

Traditional Travel Journals were created in scrapbooks. You'd write out stories about your travels, paste in photos, often including some maps of where you've been with your route traced out.

Personal Travel Websites were created by MyTripJournal to enable you to do the very same thing in an ad-free, online environment. The added bonus is that your friends don't have to invite themselves over for dinner to see your travel journal ... they can now follow in your footsteps as you go!
Where do I start?

Click on the samples and on the 'best sites' tab to view the best online travel journals. You'll see how similar Personal Travel Websites are to Travel Journals of old. The first thing you'll see is an introduction and a series of maps providing an overview of your trip. Click to see the maps that our travelers have customized to focus on their own experiences. From there you can check out their stories, photos and personal videos.

How do I create my own Online Travel Journal?

Click one of the free journal links and you'll arrive at the set-up wizard. A few steps later you'll be setting your welcome message and photo, choosing which maps you want to start with, and entering some sample text and photos. Check out the guestbook and friends' update notice features. Take the Guided Tour and learn all the basics in just 6 minutes. Later, you can explore the travel journal archiving options such as free downloads and storage of all your original-quality photos.
