WordPress makes it really easy to create a photo blog or run an online portfolio of your images. As such, many photographers, both professionals, and hobbyists alike, tend to use WordPress to showcase their works online. Of course, you still need to cater to popular photo-centric platforms, such as Flickr or 500px, but having your own website with a showcase of your images goes a long way in establishing your identity online.

The developing technology around online publishing is continuing to evolve, even as we speak as innovators and application developers begin to make good on their ideas into the real world.

As a result, we like to cover all types of publishing systems, methodologies, and apps – not all of them are good and most are downright […]
If you’re looking to use your WordPress website for client proofing, then this article is a great starting point.

Yet another incredibly busy week for us at WP Daily and the rest of the 8BIT team – as much as we hate to admit it, we’re still somewhat recovering from WordCamp Atlanta that finished a few weeks ago – all those calls and meetings and things that we had hoped to get done were pushed back and we’re finally knocking them out, one-by-one.
