Blogging: How do you promote a primarily photo blog with not much text in it?
Think of your audience.
For photographers who enjoy the technical aspects you need to add text explaining the time of day, lighting, f stops etc.
For the general public you need to give details of where the pictures were taken, what they are of.
You will have to apply some writing to your work.
As a member of the general population for me it is ok to look at a picture for a short time. But if there is no written material about the subject, I quickly tire and move on to do other things.
In that I am very much like a search engine. We both love to read.
To promote a photo blog, I would use the same methods of social media, especially Pinterest. Since Pinterest is all about photos, you might be surprised how many view and repins you get.
Make sure to caption and title your photos to give you as much text as possible, which makes it easier to be picked up by search engines. Keep SEO in mind.
Also, use lots of tags and a summary.
