About this project

$4,844

167

TravelArk is a place where users can import their Traveler Profile and all personal travel blog content so that your adventures can continue to live on the web or find a new blogging home.

All proceeds from this Kickstarter will go toward Amazon AWS hosting services related to the site. The initial amount is expected to cover the AWS fees related to importing participating members' data and then run the site for about 3-5 years.

The site will also provide volunteer assistance and tools to those looking to permanently export their data to active blogging platforms.

Risks and challenges

The website is already created. This Kickstarter is to prove out interest and fund the site for several years to come. TravelArk only imports content (travel writings and photographs) created and owned by the users themselves. Approval is sought from defunct sites to reproduce their layout of user content.
