just external storage drive (no blogging)
I never do backups and never write travel blogs during travels
upload to internet (from internet cafe)

I chose just external backup, no blogging. Which is the closest to mine
I backup to a laptop and then to an external HDD. I don't blog and rarely read blogs. I will post photos to forums while on the move.
My thoughts on blogs are that many are run and posted to by people who think their own lives are way more fascinating than they really are.

Trust in God,but tie up your Camel.
I'm the same as well, laptop and external hard drive. I usually wait til I get home from my travels as I never take the laptop with me but I am considering taking it with me next time.
Never been much of a blog reader unless I can learn something from it. I think I would rather read a good book then a blog.
New to photography and loving the challenge

Same... laptop and external hard drive.
Atheism is Myth-understood
I want to use their services, I don't want to read the next week about how someone (me) came in and bought xx gear from them. My business with them should be between me and them, not everyone else who reads their 'blog'. a 'blog' to me is the personal musing of the writer. If it is used to provide news about new products, reviews etc, I do not see that as a blog, rather a news and reviews page (which I don't mind reading).
Last time I went on an extended trip, I took a netbook. I did keep a blog, but only with the aim of keeping family informed of what we were up to. I posted a few photos SOOC with each blog (haven't got time to be processing while travelling, especially not on a small screen on a slow netbook).
I also used it to back up my photos every few days.
Laptop/Notebook and external passport drive.

Epson P5000. Robust with a good LCD, though too expensive and limited capacity.
Netbook for it's storage, then use netbook to upload for second backup. May also use another hard drive in future.
I pretty much always can be found with a laptop when travelling, whether work related, or when I'm off chasing or travelling. I'm not a fan of netbooks as I like to edit on the go, and also like the flexibility to store to both the laptop and a backup HDD while I am moving. I tend to blog when I am chasing these days, and sporadically for other photography. I find like Rick that most blogs aren't very interesting or are less interesting than the author thinks they are, and hence only do so about something that might be of interest.

Stormchasing isn't a hobby...its an obsession.

None of those choices fit me. I use a Vosonic VP8870, take the MacPowerBook, and sometimes blog. The poll won't let me make 2 choices so I didn't do it.
