People read my silly photography blog?

Posted on May 24, 2013 in photography

I started photography blogging about 1 year ago.  I had about 10 readers a day on my blog and I thought, who the heck is reading this stuff.  It turned out it was mostly my family and my fiance – Tu.  I guess that is how it always works.

I logged onto to Google Analytics to look at my stats and this popped up today.  I was amazed to see that there were 67 Active Visitors on my site at that precise moment.  And those people were logging in from all over the world.   It turns out someone had posted one of my entries on Reddit and it was getting many of hits.

But I looked further and noticed that I had already notched over 50,000 readers in the last year and possibly on pace for over 100,000 this year.

Are we in the Golden Age of Photography where this much interest is generated on it?  I think so.
