Obviously blogging takes time to research and write. So what are the benefits? Check out these links that address the benefits of blogging.
Blogging is another way for us to keep supporters informed about what is happening with the trail. In a sense, it is more private and direct than Facebook because just those interested in the trail get the news.

It requires some discipline to keep current and interesting.
