Wondering about the new badge on our site? MyCanvas has ranked 10th in Feedspot’s Top 20 Photobook Blogs! This means our blog ranks highly on Google. And, not to toot our own horn, but it also means we post consistent, quality blogs. We’re honored to have this recognition and to share that with our followers.
Top 20 Blogs
Feedspot is the best place to find your favorite websites in one place, and to discover new ones. When they choose these 20 photobook blogs, they rank based on the following criteria:
- Google reputation and Google search ranking
- Influence and popularity on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites
- Quality and consistency of posts.
- Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review
These other sites, like MyCanvas, post 1 to 2 times per week, keeping you updated with fresh photos and content. MyCanvas is among the newer sites, beginning to post in 2015. The oldest-running blog is #18 ZoomIn, starting in April 2007.
Coming in first place was The PhotoBook Journal, an e-zine that “provides commentaries about contemporary photobooks, monographs of contemporary photographers, and experimental artist books.” That puts us in good company with other great sites!

Your ancestors have a love story, every one of them. If you access these love letters, you can learn these stories for yourself. And better yet, you can tell them to others!
Many of us want to connect our ancestry to Pilgrims, royalty, Revolutionary figures, or pop culture legends. But the truth is, likely, we’re just descended from ordinary people.
Make sure you know these myths so you can build a more accurate family tree!
