I had a personal photo website/blog before... but I reduced him to a small gallery last year, because I don't want to spend updating the blog anymore, while I'm updating my Flickr Photostream too.
I was okay with the amount visitors I got, but not with the amount of comments/feedback.
When I post exactly the same photos on my Flickr account, I get a lot less visitors, but a lot more comments/feedback.
For me, the most important is a few comments instead of the quantity of silent visitors.
I even doubt to quit my personal website and only post further on Flickr, that is a community. Why have both?
Maybe I'll stop my small website too... and only keep my domain name transferring to my Flickr Photostream instead...
No more spending time in updating more than 1 thing...
