Some elements of this text to consider:
- The blog starts off with the first-person “We” and contains a significant amount of personal detail such as information about the writer’s father. This is fairly common in personal blogs but not all blogs make the same use of first-person language and personal details.
- Travel blogs like this one make use of photos to complement the text. Some travel blog photos focus more on people while others feature the destinations. This particular blog post focuses on the latter.
- Consider the specific type of blog this blog is and who is likely to read it. A blog focused on different surfing competitions would be much different than one focused on exploring surfing locations.
