A photo blog is an easy way to get on-line presence for free. A blog or website is a major outlet for your production as a photographer. There are many providers of blogging websites out there to choose from I have always used the WordPress platform for my blog and website. One of the great advantages of a template based photo blog is you do not need to know any HTML coding or short codes. So with a small amount of computer knowledge a blog is easy to set up and maintain.


The benefits of a photo blog – what’s in it for you?

I have two blog sites, my old WordPress.com hosted blog can be found here and has approximately 450 posts over a five-year period. My old blog site will be use as an archive for any visitor who wants to look back at old posts. The site will not be updated. Recently I added this blog page to my website and that is why it is being promoted.
