Default Photoblog

Hi guys, can someone suggest a good internet site to have a photoblog on? I would like to start my own photoblog and I am not sure which site would be good for that.

Thank you

Greg.

Googles blogger works nicely for a photo blog, you just need to select a theme or customize one of your own.
http://blogger.com

Lot of photographers are also using "Google Plus" social media site for photo sharing.
http://plus.google.com

There are many other services out there too, I make use of those two.
For some reason or other their content tends to get indexed fairly quickly by the google search engine

I also use 500px
http://500px.com/
However on it your images get voted on and rated buy many, sometimes thousands of others once you get a following. Takes a bit to get your nerve up to start putting your work on that service.
Rating is a sliding scale, the first votes get the highest weight then it drops off and takes more votes to raise the images rank. Images also lose 5% of rank daily. That lets old images sink and new ones bubble up to the top.
Interesting place, not for everyone.

Thing about blogs and social media sites is you need to keep content coming and fresh all the time. I mostly stopped upating mine around April felt it was taking way too much of my time. And not unexpected the followers/viewers have dropped off big time.
