A few weeks ago, I asked for ideas for hobbies
to keep me occupied while living on a small island in Alaska. A number of people suggested keeping a blog, and that appealed. So now I'm asking for help and resources to do it right!

My goal for the blog (aside from providing a really solid hobby that can be time consuming) is to document the adventure for friends, family, and posterity, and to engage in a community.
Thus far I have registered a blog on Blogger, bought a domain name through GoDaddy, but no hosting or anything yet, and set up Twitter and Pinterest accounts.
What should I be reading? What equipment and tools do I need e.g. MarsEdit? Keep in mind that I won't really be able to download anything once I get out there, which is soon. I have a relatively trusty MacBook Pro, and mostly use my phone as a camera. I am a complete blogging neophyte.
