How To Start Your Own Photo Blog

Published by at 9:51 am under General

It seems like just about everyone has a cell phone camera these days that can take photos of just about anything in a matter of seconds. Working with digital photos instead of the traditional film photos is cost-effective, there is no wasted paper to end up in the garbage and they take up almost no physical space at all!

Whether you’re an expert photographer or an amateur camera user you’ll still appreciate the ease of digital photography. And what is better than just snapping lots of digital photos is the fun way you can share them with other people. There are lots of different ways to share your photos, from digital picture frames to printing them out to keeping them on your PDA.

One of the newest ways to display your images to others is with a photography blog. A blog is a website that allows an photographer to publish instant updates onto World Wide Web about just about any topic imaginable. A photography “web log” can feature the digital photos you took on any given day or trip. You can include comments about your photos and you can inform people about why you took the images and what was happening when you took them.

To start a photography blog you only need to find some no cost blogging software and pick a blog name. Most blogging sites are easy to get started with. You simply write your comments out in a post, upload your digital photos from your PC and the blogging software pretty much does the rest. When you are happy with a post you “publish” it and everyone on the planet can instantly view it!

With a photography blog you can not only allow others to see your photos but you can also allow visitors to write comments on your posts. If you allow comments on your photos then you can also discover what other people like and don’t like about your photos. Getting commends from visitors to your web log is part of the fun of posting your images online. If you are a portrait photographer then you might use a website to show off your vast portfolio of past photos.

Don’t worry about always composing a post that’s going to make other people happy. It is your photography blog and you can put up pictures of whatever you like. You can post images of a a recent trip one day and then put up photos of some grass in your front yard the next day. Just try to have fun with the ability to publish your electronic images so easily with your own blog!
