As I am writing these words I may celebrate a minor jubilee. This is my 100th post. I know; in the blog sphere it’s not a lot. For instance I have a blogger friend who recently passed his 1000th post. Certainly in that perspective I am just a small fry in the big pond. Nevertheless I feel like it’s justifiable to call for a tiny bit of celebration. But instead of making this post into a celebration about myself, I’d rather honour all those fantastic bloggers out there, who’s been an inspiration for me on the ride so long.

I have a special idea, but I need some help of all of you, my blogger friends. I would like to gather all the great photo blogs that we collectively have come across. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a site with links to the best blogs about photography, a place to find all those blogs alive and kicking out there? So please, help me collect those blogs.

In order to make it work I want to call for a small competition. It will run over two stages. The first stage is collecting as many great photo blogs as you know about (by sending me the links). The second stage will be the actually competition where I will ask all of you to vote for the best blogs. Everyone who submits a link to a blog will receive a screen saver from me as a small token of appreciation, and in addition the ones who has suggested what will end up as being voted as the best blogs will receive a print from me, picked from any of my photographs on this blog or on my web site, signed and numbered.

Have you come across a great blog about photography? Please tell me. There are no limitations as to theme or content as long as it is about photography. It can be a blog with beautiful photographs, it can be about technique, it can be a photographer’s personal journey, it can be about post-processing or a very limited theme, for instance featuring Instagram or Hipstamatic photos.

Will you help me with this? Please go to my page called Best Photo Blogs, which will be accessible as a tab above. Go in there and leave a link or links to photo blog(s) you appreciate. More info how it’s gonna work, is posted there. Thank you for helping me.

  2. Congrats on the 100, all thoughtful and beautifully written posts Otto!
    I expect that you know of many of the photographers on my list, but I’ll surely be on the lookout for more.

  3. Probably the most rewarding experience of this blogging journey is meeting other photographers. There are so many talented amateurs and professionals. Certainly, I put your work in the top-tier ranking of my discoveries. How long do we have to give you our list? Great idea. Thanks.

    1. You have till the end of the year to submit links to great photo blogs. Thanks for the nice words about my blog, but it’s is not permissible. 🙂

  4. 100 posts excellently done. Congratulations! Your contest will create a wonderful resource to go to for viewing different perspectives on photography. Great idea! I am on my way to creating a list, and will be back to submit my choices.

  5. Congratulations on your 100th, Otto.
    May there be many more interesting & informative posts to come in the future.

  6. Cute how you linked the term small fry with the photo 🙂 The number of posts a blogger makes it is the content and you my friend always share food for thought. Congratulations on your milestone and best wishes for your latest quest.

  7. Congratulations on your 100th post!!!!! 🙂 As for photo blogs, I think the few I know are ones you already know of. I will look and see if I can pull a few together for you. Kudos on your progress… Now, about your friend with 1000 posts, does he write every hour!? 😆 😎

  8. Otto, it is never the quantity but rather the quality and thank you so much for a wonderful C. And what a wonderful way to celebrate with the sharing of our favourites which is so generous of you. Please know that as we are not able to nominate you, it wouldn’t be my list of BPBlog without you!

  9. Congratulations, Otto. 100 posts is a significant milestone. As so many have already said, it’s not the quantity but the quality that’s important. The thoughts, feelings, and ideas you express so beautifully, both in your photography and your writing, keep me coming back for more.

  10. Dear Otto
    You have the best photography blog. Your posts are always interesting. The photos are always very good. I always come away with some new information or something to think about. Whenever you comment on my blog I feel that is a true compliment and that particular post was a good one if you had taken the time to talk to me about it. Congratulations on your 100th blog. You started out strong and your blogs are even better at 100 !

  11. Congratulations! 100 seems like a lot of posts to me. It takes commitment to do it right, and I always like seeing what you’ve done and the thoughts you share. Here’s to looking forward to the next 100!

  12. “only” 100 posts – that´s what I like about your blog: that every post is thoughtfully written, with a certain idea and message behind it – making every single post worth reading it!

  13. A big congrats to you on your 100th post. And I will never agree with you that you are a small fish in big pond. You are precious to all of us, because you are the one who provide us inspiration and information about various forms of creativity through your blog. And your huge number of followers says it all. Wishing you all the best Sir. And keep on inspiring all of us. 🙂

  14. Congratulations on your 100th post!
    That is a fabulous black and white image – I particularly love the dramatic lighting and beautiful interplay with light and shade. And how the baby is scratching its head is absolutely adorable, you pressed the trigger at the right moment. Many compliments!

    Fra Hilda

  16. Congrats and wishing you many more hundreds in the years to come. Your posts bring in a unique perspective to creativity of all kinds, not just photography.

  17. They say that it is not quantity but quality that counts! Just my words – when I think of your photoblog here. You would be a prime candidate in your own competition, I admire your commitment (in Cuba for example), your creative and inspiring thoughts and ideas, and of course your great photos!
    A really good idea with such a “Great Photo Blog Center”.
    I get so much inspiration from the circles I blog in, and such a place would be ideal to provide opportunities for new circles – and for even more mutual inspiration and creativity.

  18. What a lovely way to celebrate your 100th post! You are such an inspiring thoughtful man Otto, it’s a privilege to be asked to take part in this competition.

  19. Greetings from newbie on the block!

  20. Congratulations on this accomplishment! I’m almost there, too. Your photos are fantastic. Thanks for sharing and thank you for stopping by Travel Oops and liking the post about children! Steph

  21. Otto–Congratulations on the 100th post. It IS a noteworthy blogging milestone. You put so much thought into each of your posts that you couldn’t possibly keep up that quality in daily posts. We cherish your posts all the more. I will suggest some photography sites.
