I would love to learn more. How does one know when replacing camera what will work for what one wants to do? I have looked for 6 months and do not want to spend hundreds, but I want clarity and quality. My 6 year old camera was dropped and no longer is viable.
Alas it was dropped in June so getting desperate for shooting.
 
It would be frikking awesome if you annouced this with an event, that way it's easier to know when does it start.
 
I am interested to learn this....photo blogging I am newbie in blog please guide me.
 
I would love to know whether David ever had to redesign his blog; and if he had to, when did he realise that he has to redesign the blog?
 
Mine is more of a Blogger suggestion. It would be good if photos on the mobile version of a blog would show in a lightbox rather than taking the user to a picasa page.
 
Photo blogging is one of my hobbies and I have several photo oriented blogs. I also have a couple of more technical blogs and get a lot of questions on the general topic of photo blogging - it seems to be gaining in popularity. Should a photo blog put images up prominently? Some look like the back pages in magazines - the pages where the cheap ads are. Is that effective? My blog: http://cafeludwig.blogspot.com/
 
David I have two questions: 1) Do you think it's possible to have a successful photo blog which covers a wide gamut of topics (i.e. reviews of photography gear, books, and software, photography tutorials, BTS tech specs on photo shoots, etc.) or do you think the key to your success is that you have honed in on a more specific targeted topic (strobe lighting and related information)? 2) When and how did you start getting advertising sponsors from relevant and reputable merchants that your readers would view as adding value to your site, not as impositions?

Hi Blogger. I have a problem. I already edited my profile, but I'm still a no@reply blogger. What should I do?

Why has Google made a pig's ear of the new Blogger interface? I tried using it for two months and it's awful, full of bugs, unattractice and difficult to use. I've gone back to the old Blogger interface. Is Google trying to force bloggers to use Google+?
 
@ Ian Cox 
Yeah, Google are in a bit of trouble now with privacy issues. As a whole, Google are getting into some financial problems apparently!
 
True or False: the reason that there are so many photo blog and photo podcasts is that its really, really hard to earn a living from being a photographer?

Explain your answer.

To address the above comment, I think you can have a blog that covers several topics successfully, just be sure each of the topics gets equal attention.
