feature that we can't show you here: the

"It seems most photographers use WordPress to create their blogs and while I'm still using Apple's iWeb I plan to ultimately shift all of my content by using this book as a guide. Having a photoblog is a great way to share images and the stories behind them and the authors take you step by step from setting up a WordPress account to hosting options to design and implementation. The book's landscape orientation helps by keeping the amount of text on adjacent pages focused on a single topic while the excellent but small illustrations show what to expect as your blog takes shape from design to content to execution. David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Photoblogging with WordPress is the best book on WordPress that's currently available." - Joe Farace, Shutterbug Magazine's Best Books of 2010: Digital Imaging
