Terri Webster Schrandt has condensed her knowledge of photography and blogging into a terrific little resource guide. Better Blogging with Photography outlines how to upload print copies of photos, take and curate photos using a mobile phone or digital camera, and acquire photos from contacts or garner them from the Internet. Included are websites that offer free images, and the author wisely cautions to always check the rights and restrictions for each image. She also describes how to edit your photos and suggests downloadable software that’s either free or at minimal cost. An added perk is the chapter on links and resources.
Schrandt has managed to encapsulate the basics of her subject matter into a 50-page comprehensive guidebook. Whether you’re new to blogging or well-seasoned, Better Blogging with Photography will set you on the right track to enhancing the appearance of your website and increasing your readership. I highly recommend this book.
Collecting your own photos, image resizing, watermarks, captions, buttons, and banners are all covered as well, along with practical tips on how to use these things to help your blog. Ms. Schrandt also highly recommends combining images with quotes. She touches on the importance of promoting on social media (and using images there, too), and joining some of the many popular photo challenges in the blogosphere.
The volume ends with an impressive list of resources to check for your own free images.
Terri's chapters are well organized with helpful tips on each topic including how to curate and edit your own images.
She tells how she built her blog and gained followers/friends using photos and participating in photo challenges and link parties.
I liked her list of credible links to find free images and free tools & programs to edit photos.
She discusses social media. I never considered that photo challenges also publish your post to social media.
She told some compelling copyright issue stories to encourage readers to use their own images.
This little book is action-packed full of great tips for blogging, with great, simple explanations of how to set up a blog, how to effectively use photos and images to enhance your blog, the author also gets into the importance of only using images that don't infringe on copyrights. There are photos to help demonstrate some of the instruction in this handy little guide as well. If you're new to blogging, or perhaps, a seasoned blogger who may not be aware of all the little tricks to manage a blog effectively, I would highly recommend this book.
It was with great joy that I was introduced to Terri Webster Schrandt’s book, “Better Blogging with Photography.” The best part was that someone finally wrote a book which spelled out in detail how and where to find photos bloggers could use on their blogs without violating copyright laws. Not only does the author give you credible links, she also teaches you how to edit your own images. She concentrates on the WordPress blogging platform, however, all of the information can be applied to any site a blogger chooses.
If you are a beginning blogger or even a well-seasoned blogger, you will find each page jam-packed with information you will be able to immediately put to use on your own blog. Do you struggle with blog and header design? Guess what? That’s covered too!
In Chapter Four, the author discusses how your photos tell your stories. The emphasis here is how to gain inspiration from your own images by highlighting your written content with attention grabbing photos that draw readers to your posts. Everyone loves a great photo, so why not use your own to create interesting content on your blog?
This book would also be a handy reference guide for setting up your own blog. What are you waiting for? Grab your copy today!
