After many years of not writing a single word on project22 I decided to gradually turn this blog into a showcase of my own photography. Both for me play around with ways to publish photos as well as for you to have a look at some of the images.
There are a few things to consider, e.g. where to store the pictures? Like shall I hold on to my account at flickr.com? Or shall I use my personal installation of the opensource software Zenphoto here at photos.project22.org and integrate it with WordPress using that plugin ZenphotoPress?
After trying many different themes to get a first impression I took a step back to try a different approach. I searched for famous – or at least good – photoblogs using WordPress, to get ideas, to see how things can be done and where to look for inspirations.
I’ll now spend a little time looking through some of these results before I’ll have any heavy duty adjustments at this blog.
- BlogDesignStudio on How to use WordPress as a Photo Blog
- WordPress itself on Photoblogs and Galleries
- Smashing Magazine on 50 Wonderful, Inspiring Photoblogs
- One great Photoblog: Monochromatic
- Browsing in Cool Photoblogs
We’ll see, what happens.
