This may prove a bit reckless, but, I have started another blog – an iPhone Photoblog. The domain for the venture is www.hiandyb.co.uk and it is slowly getting there. The idea behind it is to post up a new photo, taken exclusively on my iPhone, and share it via the website. The only rule I have set myself is to stick to my iPhone.
The iPhone I am using is an iPhone XR – it has an excellent camera, I just wish I was skilled enough to use it.
But, why am I starting a photo blog? Why not stick to Instagram? Well, I have an instagram account and that is tied up with work – I use Hi_Andy_B (Instagram Account) to show people what I have been up to at work – I did not want another instagram account due to the chances of them changing the copyright policy. So I started a new website.
The website is a joy to use – I plumped for the Blot CMS (www.blot.im) so all I need to do is export the image to a specific, safe Dropbox folder and then it automatically makes it up on to the website. It is a breeze – I may offer to make a blog for my Dad when he retires …
The aesthetics of the site are minimal and complete – there is a magazine vibe to the thing and I dig it. The ABOUT Page is less fussy than my regular sites becaue it was all written in MarkDown.
