    I planned to use mine for local community based content, general photos i've taken for personal use, updates to the company etc .. BUT.. I could never update it as much as I liked so I took it down.

    I've got a "Latest News" section on my home page anyway and I suppose I could also make those linkable to another page if I wanted to add content.

    Blogs are good but you need to update them constantly, time, effort, etc. Plus everyone has one, and I'm not sure I want to share personal things with potential clients anyway. I like to keep things as business like and as professional looking as possible.

    I literally just added my blog to the site. I plan on using it primarily to just give the in and outs of what is going on with the business, display images from recent shoots, etc. I have to admit I do not know that I am much of the blogger but I am committing myself to keep it updated with fresh content. I thinks it is a great tool for helping clients find a little more personal connection with a photographer.

    I have several but for the business I try to have a balance of business related stuff with recent sessions and a little of my personal site. I am finding more and more that there are people who check it every day so its nice to be able to show that I am actually working and sharing photos from recent sessions.

    all of the above. new shots/projects, equiptment upgrades, specials and new services/products, and personal goodies. personally, i'd much rather peek at a photog's blog than their website - its current.

    My website is a mix bag of Technology along with some experiences out of my personal life. I write about OS, Mobiles, Cricket, Reviews, Guides. In addition, I have recently began to design Symbian Themes which are available for download.

    Being a photography n00b, I am keeping off on posting any article or guide on same. Maybe after I gain enough experience & knowledge, I will start contributing it.
