We started this blog more than a year ago, January 19th of 2009, to be exact. Since then, we've had a total of 222 posts (this is post #223 :)). In that time we've had 8,872 visits and 14,488 page views. 77,55% of visits have been new visitors, the rest are people returning to our blog. I should mention that most new visitors (and those who only visit once) come through Google, mostly Google's Image Search. All in all, we've had 6,901 unique visitors. It's startling to think that almost seven thousand people, mostly complete strangers, have seen our photos.
The blog itself has been an incredible experience. A blog (or other similar site) is a great stepping stone into the world of on-line... well, everything, basically. It's easy and quick to setup and you learn quite a bit along the way. Also, I think it's made us look at photography in a new way. I take less photographs, but they tend to be better than before. I often look at scenes and think to myself if they are blog-worthy, and if so, how exactly to take a photo of the scene in the best way possible. I think we both try a bit harder than before.
For the past couple of months, we've slowed down with our posting - from almost a post a day to about two per week. This is because when we started, we already had thousands of photographs each - and out of those, we've pretty much used up the best ones (at least I know I have). So now the posting is in a more natural time frame - neither of us has enough time to photograph every day, and even if we did, we couldn't produce blog-worthy shots so often.
Anyhow, enough of that, we'd like to say a big thank-you to everyone who follows along, and we hope you'll stick around :-)
