This is WAY OFF TOPIC, but I don't post anywhere else, so .... (don't you guys feel lucky?)
ANYWAY ... I got to talking w/ a cousin on face book recently. Most of the family has scattered after grandparents have passed. On one side of our family there was a "split" a few years back and the 2 sides don't really talk to each other much any more.
And through this talk she and I were having, we caught ourselves playing "remember when ..." and it struck me how different our memories were of the same people, places, and events. she's a few years older than I am and her perspective is so different.
I want a way to capture these moments & memories, from as many different perspectives as possible. So we got the idea of a blog that we can open up to any member of the family who wants to post. Share our memories and invite others to include their own.
If it catches on, I was thinking of compiling the stories and pictures to be printed along w/ some family tree stuff to send around.
ANYWAY .... the point of all of this is to ask ... since this is to be a "collaborative" effort, which blog provider makes it the easiest?
I am really only familiar with Blogspot/Blogger. I have used them extensively and am pretty sure I could configure it to where only those that requested access could post, but anyone could read. That way I could make sure it was truly a family member that was posting but not keep any interested party from reading. And while I think only family members will really care about this stuff, you never know.
ANYWAY ... I haven't used wordpress or anything like that and was looking for feedback.
I'd love to hear thoughts from those of you who use wordpress or anything else.
