10,000 viewings!



I don't see viewing numbers as a measure of true worth, but it's hard to resist following the stats when it's done for you automatically and a landmark total begins to approach! I don't mean stats for this blog (I'm content if only half a dozen friends take a look each week) but for my 'Lucy Melford' Flickr site.

A moment occurred yesterday that has thrilled me - 10,000 viewings in the eight months since last February! That can't be bad. I'm sure some sites have had 100,000 viewings in that time, but then I haven't displayed pornography, I'm not a professional photographer, and I haven't been to many exotic places yet.

It's interesting to see which shots attract the most viewings (see the lower picture).

You know, when I took that photo of the 'pirate' ad for Heineken in 1983 I was recently married, living in London, and about to be promoted. I thought I was set up for life - for better or worse. It didn't work out as I hoped, and I certainly had no idea at all how my life would actually develop!

Post a Comment

You must be registered with a proper blogging platform if you wish to make a comment. I have had to deny access to completely anonymous commentators.

This blog is public, and I expect comments from many sources and points of view. They will be welcome if sincere, well-expressed and add something worthwhile to the post. If not, they face removal.

Ideally I want to hear from bloggers, who, like myself, are knowable as real people and can be contacted. Anyone whose identity is questionable or impossible to verify may have their comments removed. Commercially-inspired comments will certainly be deleted - I do not allow free advertising.

Whoever you are, if you wish to make a private comment, rather than a public one, then do consider emailing me - see my Blogger Profile for the address.
