Many people feel that photo blogging is the most

exciting kind of blogging that exists. Building and

maintaining a photo blog is no more difficult than

creating and updating a text-based blog, and many

people feel that the internet’s high speed, full-color

technology reaches the pinnacle of its appeal with the

transmission of images. Posting photographs in a blog

format on a daily, weekly, or occasional basis is a great

way to express yourself while reaching viewers in an

emotionally charged and aesthetically engaging way,

and surfing photo blogs can help you to get a whole

new perspective on the world in which we live.

Many people who run image blogs are photographers by

trade, but photo blogging is also very popular among

hobbyists and amateur shutterbugs. To be certain, a lot

of the most popular photo blogs have gained attention

because the pictures on them are of the highest artistic

caliber, and a lot of the people who run these striking

blogs are graduates of prestigious art schools and have

impressive professional portfolios. However, some of

the most well known and most often visited photo blogs

are as notable for their concepts as for the pictures

themselves. Certain photo blogs, like the popular “Cute

Overload” which features picture after picture of

adorable animals, are more about the thematic content

of the pictures than they are about the style in which the

snapshots are taken.

The fact that photo blogs range from forums to display

the work of highly skilled artisans to playful collections

of curiosities shows that photo blogging is a truly

diverse form. The fact that photo blogs are so easy to

build and to update makes this kind of visual

communication very democratic, and enables people at

all skill levels to become a part of the global

conversation about the nature and value of photography

today.

Whether you are an artist or hobbyist who wants to

create a photo blog, or whether you are just somebody

who enjoys learning about new places and things,

spending some time looking at the most popular

photography blogs on the internet can be a very

rewarding endeavor. You can travel to another place or

another time by seeing pictures of faraway locations and

long-gone eras. You can see your own neighborhood

with fresh eyes by discover how local artists have

photographed the town or city in which you live. Photo

blogging allows people to communicate all of these

things and more, which makes it a very exciting part of

the modern blogosphere. If the best thing about web

technology is that it allows people to reach each other in

a very personal way from across great distances, then in

many ways photo blogs are the most successful kind of

web sites.
