Photo Blogging 101, Part 3

The WordPress.com Blog

Beyond developing your photo blog and cultivating devoted followers, how can you take your phlog to the next level? Here’s a few extra resources that can help you along the way.

This guide explains how to add categories to your post, and you can follow these steps to add those category pages to your site’s menu.
