Just the other day I was talking about making sure you had a non-flash alternative if you have a Flash website for viewing on phones such as iPhones, and iPads. More and more Internet browsing is being done on mobile devices and you don't want to lose out on that traffic when you have a flash only website.
As it turns out, I came across a somewhat new player on the sites for photographers map - Photography Blogsites. After checking out their site and swapping some email with them I'm excited to see where these guys go.
Their blogsites are built on the Wordpress platform using HTML5 which means the sites will be easy to update, use an Internet standard admin, are going to be super SEO friendly, and best of all - the sites will work on computer web browsers, iphones, ipads all the same way! Woohoo!

Checking out their FAQs I found out a few things. One is that they use the same SEO plugin (All in One SEO) that I use on several Wordpress sites I've developed. It is a great plugin that provides you the options to make your site more search engine friendly. And they developed their own plug-in to display image galleries. (cool) The designs include links to your social media sites (like Facebook and Twitter) and some of the designs can even show your recent tweets.
To make the whole process easier they host the sites but you can use your own domain name. The upside of that is you don't have to be super technical or worry about installing the system. And you can switch between designs easily (so if you have commitment issues this may be a good option for you). They don't charge a setup fee - and the hosting is charged either monthly or annually (for some cost savings).
