I just logged in to photobucket.com for the first time in about a year and found many changes. I found that now I can edit pictures! I used photobucket regularly to upload and share pictures but never to edit. The editing station was easy to use but did not give many options like Photoshop.com. I would say that photoshop.com is a much better editing source. The two sites have a lot of the same options but photobucket.com goes more in depth and has steps to edit the pictures further. They can be done up as much or as little as you want. As I went back in to photobucket I actually found more options to edit pictures. There are many to choose from and it appears to be very new but some things are a little tacky…
Here is the same picture that I edited twice. The one on the top is from photoshop.com and the bottom is from photobucket.com

In order for people to notice and read your blog, you need to put it out there for people to read. You can promote it many ways like adding the link to the end of emails, posting on facebook, myspace, twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, youtube, or any website that you use or work from. Social media is a great way to put your blog out there. The more you put the link out there, the higher up it shows up in search engines. On the actual blog you can post the RSS so that people can get emails when you post something new. The post goes to them without them having to go to the blog, therefore it reminds them to check and read.
When it comes to a blog, people are going to read what they’re interested in. therefore you need to write about topics that you know people will want to further discuss and comment about. The site should look clean, attractive and crisp. Personally, I don’t like to waste my time on a website where everything is jumbled and sloppy. It distracts from the actual content and makes getting to the point difficult. When people see something they like, they will usually share it. Thus, promoting your blog even more.
Consistency is key. Keeping the same formats and ideas helps the reader of the blog better understand where you’re going with your writing. You don’t want to be all over the place or people will lose interest. There is a fine line in repeating your message to the readers and spamming the readers. Posting the same ideas to get the point across is one thing; posting the same thing is another. DON’T spam, or your blog will not be promoted, but deleted.
