|Photo Blogs ~ Saying it with Pictures!|
Inspiration is all around us for what we can do with our photos when they are scanned and digitized. All we need to do is look around at the infinite online resources that are available to us to share our digital stories with the world. Outside of the usual social media sites, such as Facebook, Myspace, and Bebo, many more opportunities exist for us to show the world our stories. One such avenue of sharing is Photo Blogging.
The basic idea behind photo blogging, is to use pictures to express your life. You can update your pictures daily, or whenever you feel the inspiration to do so. Either way, it's about sharing.
