A highly readable type of photography blog comes from Asia, in the form of amateur photography blogs. Many of the ones I've found are hosted on free services, with default layouts that make for a breath of fresh air. Although Google Reader has a built-in translation function—you do use Google Reader, right?—the thoughts contained in the writing become pretty obscure by the end.
Still, these blogs are notable for the highly personal images which come across them.

I haven't seen any American blogs of this type. Then again, I have barely been posting photos here myself...
