Why writing a photography blog will make you a better photographer - Dreamstime

If you want to improve you photography skills, blogging on the subject of photography will help you to stay active in the pursuit of continuing to educate yourself. In effect, it will force you to keep learning. Gathering content for your blog, in itself, will be an excellent educational experience. Not all blogs are written by experts on the subject, in fact most probably aren't. And many blog readers enjoy following a blogger who is truly developing along the way, growing and learning together along the educational path to photography excellence.

When your skills have grown to a certain point you may also want to look into opportunities to write for other photography blogs. Many of the big blogs pay writers for their work, and blogs of all sized are accepting free guest posts in exchange for a link back to your blog. Writing your own blog will allow you the luxury to work on the skills that you want to achieve, while writing for others will push you forward in directions you may not have otherwise gone. Because if you're being paid for your blogging it is going to have to be quality writing in order to be accepted for content for their blog. Writing for other's blogs can be challenging, but it is a wonderful growth opportunity if you're willing to put in the effort.

Well remember Mike, is like studying . When we write about something we will remember ideas, gain inspiration and keep the mind active. I am 100% agree.

I'm not so long ago began to pay attention to the blogs. And what I learned was a valuable experience. Thank you!

Right on Mike! As you say, blogging regularly forces you to get out there and, if nothing else, take pictures, which is what it is all about. I know from my own experience that it isn't easy to blog regularly, but I also know that every time I do, I learn something new and am reinvigorated doing what I love to do.

Thanks for posting this!
