The author shares his experience and knowledge of joining a public photoblog portal like the City Daily Photo community. He presents the rules on how bloggers may join the community such as posting a photograph each day, placing a caption, and living in the city they photograph and write about. He suggests bloggers to introduce and discuss the concept of class photoblog with their class before launching their blog. He points out that students may choose a display name instead of their real name to ensure privacy and anonymity.
