    I guess it all depends on what you have to say and how well you say it. Personally I don't read blogs.
    Is there anything donuts can't do.

    Blog that are likely to drive sales tend not to be very typically blog-like. Dave Beckerman may be the sole exception, simply because he is the exception.

    Noah Gray's multiple blogs are another example that might drive photo sales but really they promote his blog software (GrayMatter) more than sell prints (I prefer Moveable Type, personally).

    I've been astounded to sometimes see my blog get as many as 1000 different visitors a day (usually around 3-400 though, not counting web spiders). In all those browsers, only a handful even bother to post a comment, much less buy anything. Heck they won't even add me as a photoblogs.org favorite ingrates

    Unfortunately, I've been there as well. I've also spent lots of time at Camp Roberts.

    I do like some photoblogs -- especially the quirky ones that are done by people that totre around holgas and the like. I just started mine recently, and it's neither quirky nor trying to sell anything...

    Why would you think I would be into this? Is it because I said something good about digital printing?

    Sorry, I'm a bit sensitive because I've seen a few other snipes regarding this. Yes I am a dinosaur, although I'm not sure I particularly want to be thought of that way Believe it or not I'm well known on other sites as being fiercely anti-digital.

    Ok, I have tweaked the template of my blog, and I now have a links section. I have added all the blogs posted here to it.

    Thanks for the info guys. http://bmacphoto.blogspot.com

    I am bumping this up, hoping to find more film based blogs to link to and check out regularly. There aren't many of us around! I have a small list in my links section.

    bmac, did you take yours down?
