I have a dream that Adobe could provide a blog function. Maybe something inspired by the Spark pages, but with added interactivity. I think this is something that is missing among today's features. It should be integrated with Lightroom so that pictures and keywords were synced automatically. I want a website were new pictures/posts appear on the front page and viewers can browse backwards to see earlier posts. It should have a calendar to go directly to specific dates, and keywords to find specific kinds of posts.

I don't know whether it should be integrated with LR Classic, LR CC or LR Web. I would be happy anyway.

Why you don't setup a Wordpress Site? There are sync and IPTC/Exif-Tools to keep you're Page updated. Also there are some nice Themes to look a page great.

I know about Wordpress, and this is by far the best solution we have today. But I would have to pay for external hosting and domain to get the more advanced functions.

But I already pay for my Adobe membership and I have my images hosted in Adobe Cloud. So an integrated blog function here would be much appreciated.

I agree. Adobe community does have a Blog module, but it’s not active. I think your idea is a good one.

Specifically, what are the 'more advanced functions' for Wordpress that  you would need that goes beyond the free WP hosting?

There is a great fee based Lr plugin that does an awesome job of syncing your selected images to a WP blog.

I think the Lr plugin for WP.com only can upload photos, not sync them, and it doesn't sync keywords. The plugin for WP.org does however. 

And if I should have uploaded all my public photos and videos on WP.com, I would need at least the Premium plan, which would have turned out to be far more expensive than a self hosted site on WP.org.

Trouble is, there isn’t anything for LrCC, only Classic. And nothing ‘native’ to Adobe at all.
