    I took a one short course on how to blog at our local university, and then started a blog in my Photoshelter account. Most of the people come to my account searching the many different galleries I have, but the one common one most end up in is my gallery from my time in Vietnam, back in 1965. Every once in a while someone will comment, in a language I do not read. I ended up never posting them. Is that what most of you do? I don't believe that it would be wise to post something you don't even know what it is saying. I did add a comment of my own saying exactly that, if I can't read it, I won't post it.

    Before my interest in photography, I had a blog on torches and keychain gadgets. Sadly neglected now. Most photos were with canon s90

    I have my blog on wordpress, and most comments so far have been filtered as spam by the askimet plugin.

    I decided on separating my blog from photoshelter for two reasons:

    1- I found that the SEO on photoshelter was very questionable, and have much better results from images posted on wordpress.

    2- After moving off photoshelter onto zenfolio, I kept the wordpress site separate rather than using zenfolios blog page so if I parted ways, I'd still have my writings.

    I do like the zenfolio site more than photoshelter, have had less unsolvable technical issues, and have cut my costs significantly.
