Photography & running multiple sites



Copyright 2010, Steve Black (click for larger version)

As I’ve started developing this travel blog, one of the things I’ve struggled with is how to link to and share any photographic work that I post on my photography site (#shamelessplug That site is purely for fun – photography is strictly a hobby for now – meaning I don’t have any grand plans of trying to make a living off of it.

My current thought process is that I’ll share a larger number of pictures here (e.g., some of the ‘touristy’ shots that help people see what a location is like), not just the finished products that I would normal post as more ‘final’ work. I’m sure I’ll occasionally cross-post between the two – but haven’t yet figured out a set of guidelines for myself as to when I will / won’t do so. So far – I don’t have many people following both sites – so cross-posts won’t be annoying. Yet. Eventaully, that could be an issue.

Anyone out there have multiple blogs with topics that occasionally overlap? How do you deal with it?

Others – any thoughts on what would be good / bad as a reader? (perhaps I do a weekly wrap up on this site of any shots I’ve shared elsewhere that people might find interesting?) Would love to get any thoughts or reactions now – as well as any feedback in the future as I start my travels and am posting more regularly.

For now – expect it to be a bit all over the place, but hopefully I’ll strike a balance that most people enjoy!
