By customizing WordPress into a photoblog, I have one of the most powerful tools in my hands! Sky is the limit… Just imagine the hundreds of features that can be instantly added through plugins or simply writing some php code right into the pages!
I will definitely keep upgrading this photoblog with ideas both emerging from you and the web 2.0 trends. This page will be kept as a change log to mark the dates on which new features are added.

- The look of the blog has been slightly modified over the past month. Additionally, the home page now shows images pulled directly from my Flickr account. So probably, most pictures are going to be posted there instead, especially with the 1TB of free space made available to all free accounts 🙂
