In developing this site the family has had a lot of conversations about how to structure it. We wanted to make sure everyone had their own space, but also wanted to make it coherent for readers.
Originally we each had our own blog and then we had some general areas like, the The Route, Our Story and Pictures. It seemed to work, but was a little too static. In addition, I found that I was blogging about what we were doing from day to day, and so were the other members of the family. Not only was this a bit of overlap, it started to feel like work to me to detail every day, and that is not what we are looking for. So we came up with the idea of a Checkpoints section with one page for each location we stop in. In this section we will give a general overview of where we were, pictures we took, things we did, where we placed the sticker and any food we made or ate that was great. We will also keep posting on our individual blogs, but that will be more for personal thoughts or experiences. Let us know what you think or if you have any recommendations for additional sections on the checkpoints page.
