I really don't get what I am supposed to care/notice about those pictures. It's doubtful I am the target audience, however... but even the target audience might like you to write a short bit about each picture.

I, as one of the few people on these boards that play EVE, am your target audience. And you need to add a lot to the blog.

For one, you need to talk about your fittings. Because some of them are weird. And context/narratives are important, too. For instance, the "camping" picture. Unless someone played EVE, they'd have no clue what they were looking at. Yeah, I know that it's a blockade on a null-sec stargate. But no EVE players I know are going to be interested in a screenshot of a camped gate.

What they WOULD be interested in is learning how you got through it (if you did). Were you recon for a larger fleet intending to take it back? What was the enemy fleet comp, what was yours? You have some odd fittings--what were you flying and why did you choose those?

Repeat for each picture.

Thing about EVE is that it doesn't draw a large crowd outside of it. And the other thing is that EVE players aren't going to be interested in screenshots of moons.

As another potential target (I used to play EVE myself) I don't know whats going on in those pictures. I understand that you are engaged in some fleet activity. Are you raiding a pos? out on a roam? camping a gate? defending home territory? The pictures don't say to much.

a quick google search landed me this blog

While it has no pictures, I found that the drake can do level 5 missions, not sure if solo or not the author mentions having 2 so I don't think it is. But still, it was a good read.

I suggest you write synopsis to explain the pictures and such. As for the pictures it does look like you are having a good time popping cans though.
HEY GOOGLE. **** OFF YOU. **** YOUR ******** SEARCH ENGINE IN ITS ******* ****** BINARY ***. ALL DAY LONG.
