Over the last few years photo blogging has exploded in popularity. Therefore, there is tons of great content all over the web, especially when it comes to fashion blogs, travel blogs, and crowdsourced photo sites.
Photo blogs are easy to set up and maintain. Moreover, they make awesome photo galleries for photographers which are put off by the complexity of installing CMS or HTML coding.
