Just wanted to say how incredibly thrilled I am that this site has received over TWO MILLION hits in the last 6 months which averages out to about 11,000 visits per day (today the site averages about 17,000 per day). Amazing! I also wanted to say that I am very happy with the way it has been going lately around here. Love the little community that is growing along with all of the regulars like Max, Ashwin, Elaine, Harald, Eric, Frank, Richard, Black-Rooster and EVERYONE else who comes here and shares their thoughts, comments and knowledge.
Some of you come back daily, some weekly, but it is ALWAYS great to see that this site is remaining true to what it started out as. A site dedicated to photo enthusiasts who LOVE and are very passionate about photography. Those who could really care less about all of the technical BS like charts, graphs, and nitpicking every little flaw with a camera or lens. It is my belief a camera was made to take photos. Memories. Slices of life. NOT to be dissected and put through torture tests with text, charts, and brick walls.
I also want to throw a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who have written guest articles. This is what is so cool about this site as well…I am running this site to not only share my passion for photography, but YOURS as well! It’s so cool to share our ideas, tips, tricks, and knowledge. We can ALL learn from each other and that is pretty nice.
Wether it is Max with an awesome film article or Ashwin with one of his great travel articles, the variety that is happening here has been wonderful.
I also want to thank all of you who have submitted images to the Daily Inspiration. I love waking up to an inbox with images inside but the only problem is picking the ones to feature! I get way more than I can post, but it’s awesome. I have some from 5 months ago that were sent in that I may post this week, so there is no “expiration” date on your submissions. Keep them coming!
I hope to keep chugging along here every day with something new, something useful, and something fun. I will continue to test and review the cameras and lenses that I think are worth talking about and I will continue to keep this site active with digital AND film discussions. More film reviews, more scanner reviews, and maybe even a MF camera or two down the road.
But most importantly,
THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF YOU! TWO MILLION VISITS IN 6 MONTHS! WOO HOO!
Finally, I want to thank all of those who have helped support the site by making purchases through my sponsor links. Without that there is no way I could keep this going, so again, I thank you!
Let’s keep the passion of photography alive on this site and keep it simple, keep it fun, and keep it REAL! May the next six be better than the first! The cool thing is that the site is now up to about 17,000-19,000 visits per day!
