It looks like travel blogs are tres-a-la-mode lately. Blogabond is a new service that makes it easy to maintain a travel blog:

Get your own Travel Blog

Why do I need a travel blog, you ask? Because you're a world traveler. You've got photos to post, stories to tell, and, well, travel to blog about. Post a couple quick comments into your travel blog and your parents will think you're keeping in touch, when really you're just trying to make your friends jealous! So blog on, fellow traveler! The world is waiting to hear from you.
