As it says really!
For a while now I have used Flickr to host all my photographs and I like the service that they provide with their relatively good value ‘Pro’ package. However for a while I have wanted to own my own data and therefore I wanted to move to a solution where I could host my own images which were more under my control. Therefore I decided to go about constructing a PhotoBlog theme using WordPress whilst maintaining some of the Flickr features we have come to know and love. Here is how I went about building my WordPress PhotoBlog theme.
This weekend I have started to work on my own ‘Flickr‘ like blog theme. I have used Flickr for a while now to host photographs that I have then shared and used on my various websites. I still like Flickr very much however I just feel (like with Facebook) that I have little control over the content that I am posting. For these reasons I want to remove my Flickr account and host all my photos on my own server.
I will post progress of the development of the blog theme here, which as well as incorporating photos will also host my videos too. The new site will reside at http://photomark.me.
