Blogging on Vacation

I am throwing this one out to all of the Disney and travel bloggers out there. But hey you know me any and all opinions are welcomed and appreciated!

Do you blog on vacation? I mean especially if you are a travel blogger does it help to blog while on location? My goal for this trip was to get a little bit ahead (yeah right!) but also make this a "working" vacation and bring my laptop to get some writing out of the way. Since I am going to events like Destination D and the reopening of Star Tours I feel I have a journalistic responsibility to keep my readers up to date. Then again this is me we are talking about and I think people read me for the opinions...

In any case what do you think? Would you write and vacation at the same time? Are reflective pieces post trip just as good?


  1. When I went on my first trip after starting the blog, I considered scheduling posts for throughout the week I was gone, but I decided to just leave a see you real soon post and start back up when I got back. I think reflective pieces are just as good, as long as you write them in a timely manner... unlike me. I still have posts from last summer to get done. Oops!

  2. I'm with Amanda...:) I usually start writing posts but save them until I can really go home and edit them and add the correct pics. The internet in the rooms sucks (even if you pay for it) so trying to upload my 10MB photos is near impossible :(

  3. I tried so hard to post updates to trip reports I'd written in the past while actually on vacation. I found for me taking notes and looking at my pictures, I was able to write things more clearly and include everything I wanted to. When I was "live" updating I would often be in a hurry to either go do something or go to bed so I could get up and do something. :) If you're doing to do live blogging, keep it short and sweet when your schedule allows and give us all the details when you get back. You need to enjoy your vacation too!

  4. If you're looking for a sample of blogging while on vacay, Kristen (@DVCmom) is on vacation right now and has done several posts about it.
