Edition 240: 11th August 2011
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Where are you??? It appears many people must be away from home! If that's you, don't forget how useful it is to create blog updates when on location. Just send an email from your iphone/blackberry to firstname.lastname@example.org
You don't even need to open the website and your blog will be automatically published, including photos. It also doesn't matter if your phone is out of service. The email will sit in wait until you reach service range (sometimes this can happen overnight in an otherwise patchy daytime service area).
Here's some of the recent blogs created from people who used the email blog to send their trip updates. Your seemingly simple little trip snippets quickly clock up well over 200 views, many in the list show over 500 views and others over 800 views, which is equally as high as Forum posts (and sometimes higher) Go on, tease us... tell us how great your trip is going!

What are your thoughts about how can we make ExplorOz better? By this, we ask you what new services do you think we could offer? Or perhaps you just want to comment on how we can improve upon what we already do. Have you used all the features of the site? If not, why not? How do you use Trek Notes, how can we improve?
