It’s summer travel time and one thing all of us like t do is share our vacation highlights with friends and family. Our PC Mike Wendland shows us how you can share your adventures via the Internet… as you are living them. Here’s PC Mike.
We all take lots of pictures and videos and sharing them is easy with a free app and website called Dropbox. It works on all mobile platforms and the free version gives you a whopping 2 gigabites of storage. Put your photos, videos and any other file in your Dropbox and then you can invite friends and family to view them as if they were on their own computer.
I also like Photobucket. You can connect all your devices to one single repository. It even has photo editing software. And you can share with others. Like Dropbox, it will store all your photos and videos, meaning they are always safe and backed up.
I do a lot of traveling in an RV and love to blog and share photos.
But staying connected to the Internet is no problem. Most smartphones let you set up a hot spot. In my case, I use a little card called the MIFi which gives me 4G speed through Verizon. Similar cards are available through AT&T and other providers that let you set up your own wi-fi networks wherever you go.
