The Blogs are back (we just call them Notes now)

2015-03-05 13

This short note is about the return of the notes (née blogs) on Lomography.

So first: why notes? We just think notes fits the purpose of these short written entries. While a blog feels overwhelming, we just want to give you the tool to publish the story behind your photos, some short observations on photography, techniques you want to share, or anything else you can think of.

“I will write a note about this view.”

So do you want to write a first note? Nothing easier than that: just go to my/notes and click on the “New Note” button (or edit your old notes). Additionally you click also here to start writing right away. You can still add photos (now also via easy drag’n’drop) and videos (for example your LomoMovies) to your note (and we are already working on the possibility to add assets that won’t show up in your photos to a note). All this special markup is explained in the edit view.

We hope you like them. Please let us know in the comments if there is anything missing!

    @stouf: what would you like to embed? We just wanna avoid people embedding Iframes to obscure things and/or some buggy script.

    Videos are easy, just use [Video:www.domain.com] – how to make links can be found here: redcloth.org/hobix.com/textile/ – but we will add autolinking!

    If I change the content of a note, will that affect the likes and comments it already received?

    This 'notes' is one feature in lomography that I like best. I can tell a story about one photograph or a few samples that I took. I can write about my camera, lens, films, photo labs, my snapshot photography experiences, and thoughts with out bothering anyone. I can edit it anytime I want and even delete it permanently. At the moment I am writing my drafts in 'notes'.
