Photo Blogs

So does anyone here still have a photo blog? I still have one that is active, and now they seem so old-fashioned since Facebook and social media has monopolized what people see online. I hate to give up on mine since I’ve had it for over 10 years, but by looking at the stats it seems the only visitors on mine are when I go back to look for spelling errors.

So just wondering how many people still are working on blogs, and also to see which ones people follow? Thanks!

Hey Brian,
I have a hiking blog, but not a dedicated photography blog. I do read other photographer blogs. I like Michael Frye and Andy Mumford. But, for the most part, I’m following photographer’s who have a YouTube channel.

I have a blog on my site but I last time I posted anything there was a year and a half ago. I think I would pay more attention to it, but like you I don’t really see anyone reading it. I too am curious to hear other people’s experiences with their blogs.

I’m still pretty active on mine. However, the recent content is geared more toward news, updates and marketing (e.g., new photo uploads, some trip reports), and much less of the deeper, philosophical or analytical stuff I used to enjoy writing.

And the main reason is because parenthood has taken away any extra time I might have to ruminate about my work. The lack of time to write is, surprisingly, what I miss most about my professional life before becoming a dad.

The two benefits to a blog are potential SEO traffic and building an audience for educational products. I wouldn’t get caught up in how many comments you get. It doesn’t matter. What matters is having a business strategy and using as part of your tool kit. The other thing is if you just enjoy writing about your work then just consider it another creative outlet.

I maintain a blog at DesParoz.com, and try to post images and photography related stuff up there fairly regularly.

Sometimes I am more disciplined than others.
