Photoblog (Plog)

Definition - What does Photoblog (Plog) mean?

A photoblog is a form of blog in which the focus is on photos and photo sharing instead of the text of the author. The key difference between a regular blog and a photoblog is the heavy use and focus of photos rather than text. Photoblogs tend to be more visually appealing to viewers than text-based blogs.

A photoblog is also known as a plog or photolog.

Techopedia explains Photoblog (Plog)

Similar to blogs, photoblogs can also be hosted on blogging services or on individual domains. In most photoblogs the photographs are organized and posted in reverse chronological order so that viewers can see the latest pictures at the top of the page with any accompanying captions or text from the author. Most of the time, photoblogs have a theme, but in some cases the photos are random and disorganized.

Unlike standard blogging, which at times requires long hours of writing, photoblogging tends to be less tedious and requires less effort and time. Proofreading and editing is negligible, if needed at all. Photoblogs are more visually appealing and thus can do much better in social media marketing and Internet marketing compared to text-based blogs.

However, due to lack of text content, optimization is difficult in the case of photoblogs. Monetization is not easy, as its difficult to get unique visitors and text-based ads are not of much help. Photo bloggers must ensure the copyrights of photos, if taken from other sources, and provide proper credits whenever needed.
