StoryMap for Interactive Storytelling? (1 Viewer)

So, as some of y'all know, I have a little blog where I write about historical weather events - mostly tornadoes/outbreaks. I probably won't be writing any more articles after I finish the one I'm working on now, but I've been thinking about other ways I can scratch that particular itch. One thing I've always thought about doing is creating some sort of interactive map that'd allow me to write little blurbs and add photos for key points. I've always mapped out whatever I'm working on via Google Earth anyway, so it seems like a pretty natural way to display information and sort of contextualize an event.

Anyhow, ArcGIS has some neat tools for doing that, but I'm not inclined to pay that much for a little side project. The next best thing I've found so far, I think, is StoryMapJS. So, my question(s): has anyone used this before? Any experience making something similar to what I described? Or suggestions for a more suitable program?

I haven't but I love this tool!!!! I so could have used this about 2 years ago! I've tried several tools but nothing as good as this.

By the way, what is your blog address?

Yeah, I've only had time to fiddle with it a little bit, but it looks great. I'm not sure if it'll be able to do everything I'd like to do, but it seems really simple and quick to use. Most others I've seen so far are either too involved for what I want or not very visually appealing.

Edit: Whoops, my blog is https://stormstalker.wordpress.com/
