Blogging is an opportunity in itself as being a blogger is the most trending profession in today’s world.

Photography bloggers can also become influencers and endorse different brands. You get recognized for your talent and appreciated for the way you present it on social platforms.
You will know where to improve
When you present your work through blogs on an open platform it is obvious to receive some negative comments as maybe someone dislikes your work. Take the suggestions and comments seriously only if they are repeating. You need to understand that there is always a scope to improve and for that, you need to reflect on your work. Sometimes it does happen with bloggers that they post something with a view that the audience will like it but it turns out to be wrong. This is okay just reflect on it once and change it if you feel like otherwise it normal to receive negative feedback on such platforms.
Blogs can help build SEO
Blogging is an important tool for photographers because it helps you to build SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Blogging demands visual appearance on searches and for that SEO comes into action. The point here is that Google cannot read our images but it can scan your words, and this is how you can drive traffic towards your site. So yes blog and good content is the need if you have a website.
Blogging is a professional way to connect with the world and people write blogs for their own good. Thomas says there is no rule that your blogs should revolve around your profession you can write a blog on your views about something or story that depicts your personality and anything that inspires you.
The main concern with blogging is that your information should be correct and should not hurt anyone emotionally or religiously. So dear photographers start your journey of being a blogger and share your talent with the world.
