I’m looking for a blog host that I can use for photojournalism. I really want to keep my copyright so anything Facebook or Google owned is out, so what is there? Thanks to anyone who replies,

Are you a photojournalist?

I would guess that your colleagues or other members of NPPA would be the best source for such a blog site.

Most of photojournalists I know have their own blog sites.

  1. WordPress.

    Here’s one huge piece of advice: Go self-hosted. You retain 100% control over everything you post when you have a self-hosted site with your own domain name.

    I own three web sites and am currently managing two of them since my husband’s blog has been put on the back burner for now. My other sites are my personal blog and my photography site, both of which I am hiring designers for so I can completely overhaul the sites and give them that professional look and feel they deserve. I strongly suggest you do the same. The Thesis and Genesis frameworks are both excellent and I also highly recommend Studiopress for your themes (Genesis framework).

    I use Thesis on the blog (changing in June) and Genesis on my photography site. Both are very user friendly and simple to use once you get the hang of it.

    If you are serious about your work and want to be viewed as a professional, a self-hosted site on WordPress is without a doubt your best bet.
