The problem with personal blogs is that nobody finds them. The beauty of posting a ride report on ADVrider is you have an imediate following of thousands who offer such great feedback and ideas on where to ride. When you're on the road it takes a fair amount of time to keep up with just the one website.
Heck, I have a hard time responding to all the questions and comments here. Not that I mind. I have time since I travel solo. And especially here in Medellin where I am helping out with improvement projects during the day and have plenty of time in the evenings.
Ride reports make great reading when you get home. After several months you forget where you've been. I have to go back on this ride report and check myself from time to time when people ask me questions.
