Scoble, Alex Scoble
Where's a good place to go to set up a photoblog?
The Internet is popular, but a very cliche place. - Micah
Drat on you, Micah! I meant what's a good site to use that is specifically tailored to making photoblogs? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Posterous is all about that these days. Or I can set you up a WordPress install with a choice of themes on one of my BlueHost servers. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Good to know, Mary, and thanks for the offer, but this isn't for me. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Then Posterous or Tumblr. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Tumblr seems popular - Todd Hoff
Smugmug a possibility? - Eric - Back to the Grill
Or, really, the dead-easiest thing to do is ourdoings, which does it for you. You upload a bunch of pix to a special DropBox folder and it organizes the shots based on the metadata. Then, go back in and add whatever text you want to tell the story. http://ourdoings.com - Mary B: #TeamMonique
And it's our own Bruce Lewis - so it stays in the family. We ought to promote that more. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
FF trounced your G+ response. - Todd Hoff
Word, Todd...big time. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
For public consumption I use Posterous (not actively, lately) http://wittman.posterous.com and Smugmug's API + a PHP app I wrote for private family photos. - Micah
flickr - sofarsoShawn
I still like Flickr for photosharing - WarLord
I've tried Posterous, Tumblr, Wordpress, Smugmug/Flickr/Picasa hackery, Instagram, Zenfolio and 500px for various mutations of photo posting/blogging, and for something public, I'd just just go with Tumblr these days. I think the community trumps any sort of technical whizbangery. Particularly since other tools (e.g. Instagram) will post to it natively. - Ken Sheppardson
...or just use FriendFeed. :-) - Bruce Lewis
Friendfeed remains a choice, if not a popular choice. - Andy Bakun
ourdoings seems nice for telling a story, needs nicer skins though (considering calling a favor from a friend to get one done). And it links to FF like nothing else does (and g+ and more). Blipfoto is nice if you want to try to be more consistent and encouraged in taking photos. I have found blip to be easy, friendly, clean. Also, it's a scottish startup. There's also european ipernity, which feels like a clone of flickr except with better support for telling a story/blog around a set of pictures - Iphigenie
Hi iphigenie. If you talk to that friend, ask if they'd be more likely to want to design a skin for it if it were bootstrap-based -- http://twitter.github.com/bootstr... - Bruce Lewis
I recently ran across a nice photoblog theme built on Thesis theme for Wordpress. http://exhibit.wpblogger.com/ - Me
I like Wordpress, but I'm a big dummy - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Bruce, Bootstrap looks cool. If you're thinking of doing skins, Bootstrap doesn't look any harder than messing with WP themes*, and that LESS business just about made me swoon. If people want custom skins, I'd be happy to design them! *I can't say I build whole themes from scratch - don't have the php chops for that. It's more like I restyle existing themes - Genesis child themes, or I also have a developer license for Elegant Themes - with client trade dress (type, colors and imagery). - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Bruce, I will ask. Strangely enough Bootstrap was exactly what I was using messing with my skin for my old tired site (wish I'd enjoy that kind of design more, but i dont). I don't know if bootstrap would make a huge difference but I think having a well structured and documented (or self explanatory) template would help, and bootstrap or some other framework would help you in creating that, i think. I tried my hand at imagining a skin (just via the "additional css" route) for ourdoings myself but it was a lot of trial and error (save page from browser with all assets, create an "override.css" to make changes and try to work out which style affects what where) and I have too many other plans on now so it's parked. - Iphigenie
