IDEA-Add photos to a blog.
GOAL-Exposure of work.
COST-Photo equipment, time (shooting and choosing photos and setting up blog), no cost for free blog.

There's two benifits to putting photos in a blog. One is to showcase your work. The second is an increase in visual appeal of your blog. Focus on variety in your photos. Choose how often you will add a picture to your posts. Take enough pictures to post for two months. Take several shots to get the best one for your blog. These photos can also be used in flyers, brochures, and business cards.

I already have lots of photos so my time will just be used choosing photos. I rename them with the location or subject. I'm going to add a picture with almost every post since my business is photography. I have already started doing that.

By September 2006 I will make the time to choose seasonal photos and photos that match the theme of the posting when possible. I realize I don't have the time for that right now. It's better use of my time to learn more about blogs and to develope blogs.

Take pictures of the process, not just the finished products. Include as many products as possible. Have yourself in the photos woking on different aspects of your craft. Maybe even include the shopping!

It might get boring with just pictures of you writing! Add interest, start getting pictures of you writing at various locations. Vacations will have lots of opportunities. Find points of interests, varied plant life, and historical places for the backround and put yourself in the foreground of the photo. You should be fairly minor in the photo.
Illustrate several short writings or a long piec with photos. Pick a consistant schedule to post (daily, weekly, 3 times a week). Decide which of your writings you will use. When posting try having most of your blog in black text, then in bright colored larger text have your featured writing that you will illustrate. You can break down a larger piece into segmants and post over several weeks or months. See how it looks in italics.
