Just a little New Year’s message…2010 and third full year of Photojournalism Links is now behind us. The site has been growing nicely throughout the year in terms of visitor numbers, with roughly 30,000 views a month since the summer. The Twitter feed has 9 300+ followers. It’s great to know there’s an audience for the type of blogging I’m doing. Makes me all the more determined to continue.
Thanks to everyone who got in touch during 2010. I appreciate all the feedback as well as links to new projects and features. Keep them coming. Thank you.
I’ll be starting 2011 with a visit to Venezuela…writing this on my iPhone at Heathrow…and I’m not sure if I have a chance/time to do any updates until I get back mid-January…but you can be sure that Photojournalism Links will continue to be updated regularly also in 2011, maybe not daily like in the past, but at least 2-3 times a week as during the last two months.
Once again, very happy New Year to everyone. May 2011 be prosperous to all both personally and professionally.
All the best.
