the balance tipped
Blogging: Sometime yesterday afternoon, the number of stream views on Flickr crossed 29500. And that meant that it had exceeded the number of views on my blog here which at that point was at 29419. It took Blogger 33 months to get to the point that Flickr took ten months. Perhaps it is Flickr's ability to cross post images to other photo groups and is an easier means of exposure of my work - no pun really intended. I am by no means one of the big posters with huge traffic on Flickr, but it is not unusual to have 100 views a day or more depending on what I post. And sometimes many more hits on the individual pictures.
Been a fun ride so far and I am certainly liking both, though as anyone can tell that my output here has diminished due to the photography. I am trying to balance both, as I started this blog out of the frustration of not being able to be a published writer in other media. But of course now I can punctuate my words with great pictures - now and then. Which is a perfect way to illustrate a story.
Keep warm everyone. Especially if taking photos like the one above. :)
