I don't think there are any rules. You can honestly manage your trip report any way you want. My bit of advice would be to read other trip reports and get an idea of the usual flow so you get more comfortable.

A lot of people type it first and then paste it. You don't have to do this. You can do it either way.

A good trip report should include pictures. If you don't want to post pictures of people, that's OK, but definitely do scenery shots and detail shots.

I actually use my pictures to help me write a TR. They serve as my memory for what I've done.

Use a photohosting site such as flickr or photobucket to store your photos and then post the IMG link.

Here's the thing with trip reports. Start reading and subbing to other people's TRs now. When it comes time for you to write yours you will have a built in readership. It's frustrating to write a TR if no one is reading it. There are a group of people, myself included, you are regulars on the TR boards. I find it goes both ways - if you read mine then I'll read yours.

Catchy titles help. Post a link to your TR in your signature.

Posting chapter links help.

Hope this helps.

Oh - and I almost forgot the most important thing - respond to each and every post you get. Don't pick and choose. Welcome each reader. Show interest in each and every person who reads.
