I keep up with all sorts of dance blogs, regardless of the style. I have never done flamenco (and would certainly love to try it), but enjoy keeping up with DC Flamenco Photo Diary and Blog.

In this post, Miguelito, the force behind DC Flamenco, discusses how he first came to starting his website and blog and how it almost by chance became the heart of the DC flamenco community. He talks about the various technical, logistical, time, and human challenges associated with being the one that everyone relies on for the most up-to-date information (particularly for something that started out as a part-time hobby), and how it can sometimes be a lonely job. I think this is an interesting post for any dance blogger to read because it addresses not only some issues of relevance, but also the technical IT aspects of managing a growing website.
