So you want a WordPress photography blog? Then you're in the right place.
You see, the idea that WordPress is only for blogging, is incorrect. However, the roots of WordPress is blogging. The software was originally created for that sole purpose. But years later it has evolved into the most powerful and flexible content management system. You can now run an entire website and application from a WordPress website.
But you're here to learn about WordPress photography blogging. So let's dig into that a bit.
The first step to creating a WordPress photography blog is to pick a host. We recommend a Managed WordPress Hosting platform, of course.
Once you sign up, within minutes you have a fully created photography website. And you can change to any of our themes with a few clicks.
Both allow you to put blog content in the foreground. But offer flexible design to load nice on all devices.
The next recommendation is to install Jetpack. The reason is that by connecting your site to the WordPress.com servers you can use the desktop and mobile applications to blog offline and remotely. You can do it from your phone using mobile photos and videos. Or from the desktop without logging into your website.
If you want to "go crazy" you could even install Intagrate which will enable you to create blog posts from every photograph you post on Instagram.
WordPress Photo Blogging
The key to photo blogging in WordPress is to not overthink it. Especially if you're doing it for fun. Go with the flow. Have fun with it.
But if you're doing it for business, come up with a strategy. Make an editorial calendar. Think it through and push hard to accomplish goals.
