Irish Photographers are a busy lot. There are a good few photobloggers in this country publishing photos either daily or almost daily and they’re producing some amazing stuff! Unfortunately it’s sometimes hard to find them because photoblogs don’t always lend themselves well to search engine analysis. That’s where Irish Photographers.org comes in.
Irish Photographers.org will aggregate the content from some of Ireland’s best photoblogs (the others haven’t signed up yet!) and make it easy to discover new talent. I’m quite excited by this project and the enthusiastic reaction from other photobloggers has been great!
So far there are 10 blogs contributing to the site, but that number was limited to my contacts on Twitter and by my own limited spare time to work on this. If you’d like to have your site added, go to the About page, read through the short list of guidelines and fill in the form.
The site isn’t perfect by any means, the theme could do with a bit of tweaking. It needs a favicon and a web 2.0 button would be great. Anyone want to volunteer?
PS. Don’t forget the Doneraile photowalk on June 8th! There will also be a photowalk in Dublin this weekend. If you’re not a member of Facebook, here are the details:
A photomeet at the Dublin Maritime Festival. We can meet at the Harbour Master (link below) at 1pm.
Event: June photomeet. “photomeet greatfunaltogether”
When: Sunday, June 1 at 1:00pm
Where: Dublin Docklands
Redmum is organising this photowalk. Just in case you’re wondering why her blog isn’t included on Irish Photographers.org, it’s for technical reasons; blogger doesn’t offer per-category feeds unfortunately. She’s working on a solution so hopefully she’ll be contributing soon!
PPS. Cork City Marathon is on June 2nd. I hope to be there. Leave a comment if you think you will too!
