    Any tips on creating a blog and getting users to upload the articles and pictures etc?

    I saw some themes for wordpress on another thread such as facepress and I love it

    It got me thinking...

    Yes, that is possible. But you must be ready to provide an incentive for people to upload unique articles and pictures.

    thats the kind of crap site that AMR posts to - so all you'll get are crappy auto spun articles not worth the bandwidth they take up.

    you can do that but in return they will want to have a link back to their site. that means giving away your juice.
    But you can do the same thing by outsourcing the contents.

    I was more thinking about creating a community, some people actually want to write and put it out there without doing their own blog. An example would be Thailandstories.com
    All the big success stories of the Internet have been built on users uploading content, think of the tripadviser eBay instagram and of course facebook
    They are all on a massive scale, but could you find a niche people were interested in enough to give you all the content for free? Would be cool if you could eh
