Blogger-pinion

I've always asked questions about blogging and what will make my blog a better blog visually and content wise, where the traffic comes from and how networking helps publicise our blogs. I've been thinking about doing this series of posts for a while, and depending how it takes off depends on how it continues....
I want to develop hashtag link:  #bloggerpinion on twitter and I want you lovely readers to comment or tweet and express your feelings and opinions on the topic each week or so about our dying blogging questions and thoughts.

This week I've been wondering: Does your blog image quality make you a better blogger?

I don't have a camera, mainly because I have broken them all and secondly because of the main reason... I can't be trusted with one. And for this reason, all my photos are taken via my iPhone and I've always felt my photos are not of the best quality for my blog, purely because I feel like I'm not using the best quality camera for my photos. I see that a few bloggers have their DSLR cameras to take their photos of their outfits, reviews and other things with but I've always wondered how much picture quality matters when you are deciding whether to follow a blog or not?

My opinion: is that it doesn't matter, and that photos are just a visual aid on what you're talking about. Whether it be what you are wearing today or a review, or pictures of the events of your day or week. I think maybe picture quality matters more when you're trying to show something in it's most realistic form... But does it matter that much? As long as the pictures aren't complete blurs ;) (I joke!)

So if you like, leave a comment and express your thoughts, feelings on this topic or send me a tweet to @CatttSays with #bloggerpinion! Also, if you'd like comment with other topics you'd like to see being discussed. I think this is a good way to see what other bloggers think about each weeks topic and how we feel about others opinions, network and talk other bloggers :)

    1. Thanks! I'm glad I know someone else who just uses their iPhone! I don't think it puts people off! Its about the content not the quality of the image! :)

  3. This feature is a really good idea! I love blog posts that provoke discussion rather than just: "look at me, I'm wearing an outfit!". And with regards to image quality, it really doesn't bother me. Not all of us can afford DSLRs, so it's nice to see bloggers who use phones and bog standard cameras. You can kinda relate that way. Also, I've seen people with DSLRs who really don't know how the hell to use them! x x

    1. Thanks :) I'm glad you think so!
      I believe that I'm a blogger of all topics. I don't like writing just fashion related posts!
      I agree with you about being able to relate to a blog and the blogger because their picture quality isn't like SUPER WOW. I think its nice when bloggers have nice pictures but we're not all photographers :) XO

  4. I've always believed that the key in being able to take good photographs is the person behind the camera, rather then camera itself. The camera only does what you tell it, so while a blogger may have the best most expensive DSLR if they can't work it right or they are just using the auto settings on it then they are no better then using a stand point and shoot. I can't afford a DSLR so I have a bridge camera, which is the difference between a point and shoot and a DSLR, I didn't buy it to be a better blogger or whatever, I brought it because I genuinely have a photography passion. And in honesty, a lot of the photographs I take for my blog have been taken with my husbands point and shoot!

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion! I think its important we all share our opinions. I agree with you though, it is more about the person behind the camera, not the camera itself. I just see so many bloggers with amazing photos, and photographers with lots of followers and then I prefer following blogs i can relate to rather than the more famous blogger XO

  5. When I first started blogging I used the camera on my phone and now I just use a simple digital camera, not everyone can afford a DSLR and I don't think it's the must-have for a blog.

    It's what the photo is actually of that's more important rather than it being amazing quality! xx
