Today, August 12, 2008, is exactly one year since I made my first posting on Visuallens.
It was a difficult start since I have little knowledge about blogging and writing. I started Visuallens using a free WordPress platform. I’m thankful to my photography friends who are helping me to pass through this journey.
I really try my best to learn during the first few months. I was aware that the contents and photos are important. And I have to keep on improving in order to succeed.
A great deal of work went into the development of Visuallens. I always make an effort to make sure the photos are of high quality before I posted them on the blog but it wasn’t like that earlier on.
Since January 12, 2008 exactly 5 months after launching Visuallens, the site got 13,206 views and it received a Google PR4. This really has given me some great encouragement to continue in my blogging. I have to upgrade my photography equipment especially the camera and lenses in order to have some quality photos.
The blogging experience has given me serious thought and also some fun in meeting those who share the same interest in photography.
On August 1, 2008 Visuallens received another good news. It was promoted to Google PR5. It has a total 51,900 views and I really feel great for the moment when my friends congradulated me for this achievement.
Some of my friends have given up their mouse as they get tired when there is no breakthrough. There were also time when I just sit in front of my computer and I don’t know what to write and post. But I know I have to keep on as Visuallens will have the opportunity to attract more readers resulting in more visitors and getting to know new friends.
I am at the crossroads now as some suggest to me that I should go for my own web hosting.
That’s all I have to say about the first anniversary and many thanks to all the support given to Visuallens. Reading and commenting for this past one year. I have made some great friends on the Net through this blog.
I’ll continue this incredible journey and hope Visuallens will continue to provide great enjoyment to visitors with its postings.
