Bob Sprankle has (along with others like Alan Levine) inspired me to start a 365 photo blog in 2011. I’m contemplating options for setting up the blog, and am wondering whether a Posterous blog or a WordPress blog (probably on a subdomain of speedofcreativity.org) would be my best choice? Bob uses WordPress (bobsprankle.com/365) and Alan uses Flickr sets (I don’t think he posts these to a separate blog.) I know free apps like PicPosterous and Posterous can make mobile 365 photo blogging very speedy, so that’s why I’m considering Posterous. I’m most likely going to shoot all my photos for the year with my iPhone4.
For those readers who have (and/or currently) participate in the 365 photo blogging project, what is your opinion about this question? Are their advantages or benefits of Posterous or a self-hosted WordPress blog which make it an obvious choice for a 365 photos blog? Is Flickr all I should use for the project, or is cross-posting to a blog worthwhile from a networking / learning standpoint or for other reasons?
