Some pics from my Instagram (Jan-Dec 2014)
A few days ago I received the usual annual report from WordPress with the blog’s activity in 2014.
How many views and comments in total, all those numbers… The funny thing is that I started getting more views/followers from the moment I went more personal with the blog.
That happened a few months ago when I realized I was going through my old posts quite a lot, enjoying reading about what I was photographing one or two years ago and seeing the progression of things – like reading a journal – so I started using my blog in a more personal way.
Another thing that came up in the report, much like in other years, is that a lot of my readers are from Portugal. Not a surprise since I have family and friends there.
The reason why I didn’t start this blog in Portuguese was because I wanted to reach to other photography bloggers all over the world + allow anyone to follow along, so writing in English seemed the best choice not leaving anyone out.
Anyway what I really wanted to say (I always feel I have to explain things before getting to a point!) is that from now on I will…
keep it personal…
I will post whenever there’s content to publish, no matter if that means 3 days in a row and then nothing for a week. The Mondays & Thursdays combo is over.
I’m going to keep the Happy Monday posts to share photography related links as I was doing every Monday, but apart from that all other posts will be spontaneous publications.
and add a little text in Portuguese.
At the end of each post there will be a small paragraph in Portuguese, probably not the entire translation of the English text but a nice little explanation of what the post is about!
¦TRADUÇÃO¦ Pois é! A partir de agora cada artigo terá um pequeno resumo em Português. Uma vez que o relatório anual do WordPress diz que grande parte das visitas vêm de Portugal, acho que faz sentido! Para 2015 quero que o blogue continue a ser muito pessoal, como um diário aberto das minhas aventuras, descobertas e realizações fotográficas.
