Poll: Do you want weekly photo topic ideas?

We know some of you are photobloggers, or like to just post a photo to your blog instead of exclusively writing, now and then.

We’re considering offering a photo topic each week. Is this worth it to you? Or would you prefer a bonus writing topic each week?

  1. It sounds much trickier to come up with broad photo topics that’ll work for so many people, I’d be really curious to see what you’d come up with. :)

  2. What a thoughtful idea, and yes, I could use the assistance during our darker winter months in Alaska. Thanks!

  3. I think that would be a pretty good idea. You could see and compare each persons perspective on the subject which may inspire you to think a different way or view things in a different light.

  4. Hey, not a great poll… I didn’t care for the second option… I love photos and am posting some regularly but I would prefer a bonus writing topic… So while I voted “No” it isn’t because I hate photos….

  5. It’d be great if people post their OWN photos here then to save people like me the headache of wondering which image was copyright infringed today. If there will be photographs posted, people need to make sure that they actually abide by federal copyright laws, fair use, creative commons etc. Just hoping that this topic doesn’t open a can of worms for photographers. Gotta look out for my peeps.

    I blog photographs but not on WordPress, on Blogger. My blog here for the daily post has different subject matter so I don’t think I will be doing the photo topics as a part of the daily post challenge here.

    1. I didn’t think of that but I could definitely see it happening now that you mentioned it. Hopefully there’d be some encouragement to share your own pictures, not just something you find through Google.

      1. Correct. Because you cannot “find” an image in Google. Google indexes anything on the web. However, Google itself does not remove copyright from images.

        I hope people share there own. Besides that is more interesting anyway as it will be relevant to their own lives.

    2. I think copyright is one issue and using your own photos is another. There are public domain photos available and everyone may not be able to go out and take the picture themselves.

      I agree with you that it would be more interesting to see something more relevant to the bloggers life but I also think the idea of the topic is to motivate more people to blog.

      1. Public domain ≠ whatever is on Google search. That’s all I meant. Just trying to keep people out of hairy situations. ;)

        True, the photo can be the source of what jogs the idea of the blog but I think having non-photographers take a picture then blog from it is a pretty dope idea. Easy? No way. But it would be great.

  6. I really hope I get the whole week to work on it so I can put it off to the last minute and rush to get it done. Photographer, know thyself. I was actually looking at doing a 365 of pictures as well as posts earlier today.

  7. I love this idea. I love posting with photos on other sites but never have on WordPress….I think I may need to learn how to upload photos onto WP, so all in all this would widen my horizens even more! Great idea.

  8. If The Daily Post would post a photo as a topic, and let people riff on it, that’d be a great additional way of incorporating those that don’t want to post a photo.

    1. Now that could be great. Post one image and people create a topic from that image. A picture is worth 1000 words we should easily be able to blog 250-500 from one LOL!

  9. I already post my, somewhat artistic, photos on my blog and have a specific page for it and enjoy doing it so much, but I would like more ideas of things so snap! That would be cool :D
