Blogs. As photographers, most of us have them, and if we don't, we feel guilty that we don’t. If we do have them, but never write on them, we feel even worse!
I think that one of the reasons it is so difficult for us to be consistent bloggers as photographers is simply this: because there are so many blogs and web sites about photography, (and beautiful images, and how to use flash, and how to win clients, etc. etc. etc.,) it can be intimidating to distinguish your blog from all of the others, so we just don’t try.

The fiercely individual surfers who are bloggers, are a demographic that responds especially strongly to personality, and we all have one of those. In fact, we all have a unique personality, that’s all our own, like no one else’s.[pullquote] No one can be you, but you.[/pullquote]
