First Anniversary of this PhotoBlog ! COMPETITION : Vote for your Best 10 PHOTOS and win some printings !


This blog has one year today. This photo is not the best photo... but is meant to just be a little "reference" to the
first post made on this blog on 13th March 2008...

I take this opportunity to thank all of you who supported the blog with various techniques from the blogosphere, commented on the posts, subscribed via RSS and/or Email, and showed me their appreciation via very different and various modern media!

It has been a long and demanding journey, with more than 350 photos and posts.
But it also brought some rewarding achievements : excluding hundreds of RSS and Email subscriptions, 36,000 visitors (22,000 unique visitors, and high loyalty from a few hundreds of them), coming from more than 130 countries, and who spent more than 80,000 cumulated minutes viewing more than 100,000 pages.
I hope you took as much pleasure in browsing the pages and get your daily dose of image.

Let's see what this blog will become in its second year as I am not quite sure yet ! Any suggestions to improve are welcome !

I hope this "Friday the 13th" anniversary date will bring many more posts and also… bring you luck for below competition I would like to launch :

Even if not the best one, this is still a great, original and colorful photo. Not sure one can find many Mind The Gap photo as original as yours ! But... indeed not in my Top 10. That's nice from you to encourage us to browse through the last 365 days.... Choose Top 10 will be difficult, but you can count on me ! Cheers, Sophie.
