FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SOCIETY OF PHOTOBLOGGERS: Find yourself featured on 50 blogs for a few days.
March 3, 2010
Subject: Society of Photobloggers
IMAGINE A DAY WHEN YOU WAKE UP TO FIND THAT POSTS FROM YOUR PHOTOBLOG ARE BEING FED INTO POSTS OF 50 OTHER PHOTOBLOGGERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. Complete with images, tags, and in fact it looks just like your photoblog, and it seems to be everywhere you look. Not only that, but as you continue to add new posts to your photoblog, they are picked up in the single post on all 50 photoblogs.
In short, the idea is for photographers to combine forces to help publicize each other, as well as to form a network of crossing links that will improve your visibility in search engines.
And on top of that, this promotion is free. All you have to do is agree to display another photobloggers posts in a post on your site, 49 times a year. And don’t worry, there’s no work involved for you. The code has already been generated through a feature of Feedburner called BuzzBoost, and you will be told where to copy it and paste it into a new post in your blog.
No, you don’t need to join Feedburner or do anything else. The feed will have already been made, and the technical stuff taken care of for you.
It won’t work on sites hosted by WORDPRESS.COM (don’t confuse this with self-hosted wordpress sites). It will work fine with sites running wordpress such as my own site, www.BeckermanPhoto.com/blog
That’s it in a nutshell.
What sorts of sites are eligible? Loosely, I would say, Fine Art photoblogs with a large number of “good” images. We aren’t going to include wedding blogs, or product blogs. You may do wedding photography for a living, but if your blog can stand alone as a fine art blog, then you should be good to go.
Here’s a link with more information about the Society of Photobloggers, along with an online application form.
And if you aren’t interested, pass this release around to photobloggers that might be. It is a concept that I haven’t seen used before.
