If your primary aim is to post and share photos, then one of the photo-sharing sites is probably going to be more user friendly than a website or blog site. There are many of these available, all with slightly different features and price points.
After reviewing several of the photo-sharing sites, I chose SmugMug. It is very easy to upload photos to the SmugMug site - literally a case of dragging and dropping the images. You can sort the images into different categories/galleries, etc so that they are easy to find. You can add information about each photo but you can't have pages of text about you, like a website or blog offers. My own SmugMug site is bermudarover
if you want to get an idea of how they look.
For several years I have had a website hosted by Homestead and I used it to document trips, motorcycles, boats, and various interests. However, it isn't the easiest software to use and I began to find it all too time consuming to keep updated. I still have that site (www.morefish.com
) but it is really a historical site that I seldom update anymore and the design is very dated.
For the past couple of years, I have been using WordPress to document/blog the purchase and upgrading of my Land Rover and my preparations for a five-month trip in 2014. What a contrast to the quirky Homestead option! WordPress is very easy to use and offers many different themes so that you can customise the appearance. Another nice feature is that you can have several website-style pages of info that can be updated as necessary, whilst still having the blog component for trip updates, etc. My WordPress site is www.bermudarover.com
if you'd like to see it. You might also want to take a look at Sirocco Overland | Сирокко Оверленд | Solo Vehicle Dependent Exploration, Travel & Adventure
- a WordPress site that I think is very well done
It is relatively easy to upload photos to a Wordpress blog but they have to be uploaded individually, so it takes more time than SmugMug, where you can just highlight a big bunch of photos and drop them all in at the same time.
I also manage a much smaller website via GoDaddy. It is OK for what we use it for but I wouldn't recommend GoDaddy for sites that will feature a lot of photos. It isn't that user friendly for photo uploads.
Anyway, I hope this helps a little.
