Day hike on Dartmoor
Include a little history in your walks. Pecsaetan - Ancient Derbyshire, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire - http://pecsaetan.weebly.com/
Each to their own, but it wouldn't be much of a forum if people just posted links to elsewhere rather than share their experiences and knowledge here.
This is what I see on my link. There's only the one linking word, which takes anyone who clicks it to the blog (second picture). As far I know there is no linking text within the blog, or advertising on it.
Getting grumpy cabin Fever Twigs?
It's not spam
Maybe a bit more info would satisfy ?
-Dave Brown and Linsday Boyd amongst others been doing this every trip since god knows when....

The Easter weekend has arrived and with it the typical Bank Holiday weather. We had no intentions of visiting the Lakes during the holiday period so we settled for this walk along the River Kent with a return along the Northern Reaches of the Lancaster Canal. It seems a while since we last walked along this way and we both enjoyed it. Pictures from the walk with full descriptions and route information are now available to viewon the website.

On Thursday 12 April 2012 I took the bus from Inverness across the Kessock Bridge to climb the Hump, Ord Hill. The views weren't as I had hoped but the above link will allow you to view the few photographs I took in the form of a side show. It may take a few seconds to load.SlainteLindsay

Cabin fever?, nah, just done a massive 2 and half miles round the local area.
I'm getting there, slowly but surely.
Twigs - your initial post was so rude
But - You need the patience of a saint to write a trip report within OM as the authoring 'tools' are riddled with quirks and resizing photos is a pain. I don't blame anyone for linking to their blog as it is so much easier (if I had one, I'd do it too). I agree with Twigs that it's somehow nicer to read a report hosted within OM - perhaps the external links somehow erode the 'OM community' and are perceived as self-promotion?
As an aside, Jon has promised me an abundance of cakes if I write up some of the OM usability issues by the middle of next week. There's no promise of it getting fixed though
I don't think it was any ruder than the OP Milly imo, though maybe it does come across that way to others.

Exactly that , imo.
I use OM to read input on OM, if i wanted to read blogs i'd search them out.
Btw, i always host my pics on Tinypic, there's no faffing that way, i'd probably never post a pic here myself if i had to go through the OM pic facility.
Great pics - funnily enough a pal and I were talking about that same walk yesterday. We did it two years back. Plym Head must be treacherous right now. Thanks for sharing.
Anyone interested in Dartmoor will have the Dartcam site link I expect.
Second that - lovely photos mate. I love that area around Nun's Cross; especially the menhirs at Drizzlecombe.
I'll be following your blog with interest, as I'm local to the Moors, and I don't give a flipping flip if you've linked stuff in here. I see OM as more of an outdoors portal with which to gain knowledge, so happy days.
The Twix cookie review tickled me.
Hi Wurz. I'll be sure to check it out, thanks for the tip. Was just reading up a little bit about it on legendarydartmoor.co.uk , an amazing source of info about the moor which I'd recommend to just about anyone.
My last 2 hikes have been on the north part, so may be due another visit further south. Always looking for ideas for somewhere new to visit. Cheers.
