Numbers mean nothing … but definitely something!

on

Well, I am not a number cruncher but somehow I felt that I should make a post today just because today I received my 1000th following to my blog. It has been about 8 months of an exciting journey here.

Well, the initial idea of starting the blog was to post technical information specifically in the field of information technology. Started with that, but then since I am into travel and photography, did post my travel experience as well as some photography stuff. Soon I started noticing that people were very responsive to the travel and photography than the original intention. Naturally, my blog evolved into that. Now my blog is mostly photography and travel. See this is what little encouragement does!

I am thrilled to be here and glad that I embarked on blogging. Apparently, my Instagram and the Facebook posts have come down drastically. I feel it’s simply because of the type of interaction I looking for from social networking. Facebook, even though there is a large following but its geographically isolated and very difficutl to get find like minded interactions. On the other hand Instagram has been more of a photo posting and liking than the actual conversation. I guess I love the conversation more!

Another surprising find is, whenever I wrote some thoughts about some touchy matter or an issue, I got immediate attention from most followers. Probably things we encounter on daily basis touches people very fast and deep. Daily prompts and Three Line Tales helped me motivate into it.

Now about the followers. I have made some excellent friends here. I have a great set of photography enthusiasts who are the reason for the photography channels we are running here. Also, have many interesting people who post amazing stuff and make me wonder whats next coming from them.  So it has been a great run till 1000 followers. Thank you guys for choosing my blog and being with me. It’s always a pleasure to know there are virtual strings attached to me from different parts of the world. Let’s keep that connection going, stronger.

Cheers to all of you.

Raj

😘 👐🏻 🙌🏻 👏🏻 🙏🏻 👍🏻 ❤️ 💛 💚 💙

    congrats for hitting your first 1000 mark.
    I have realised that in comparison to SM, blog generate better interaction. Also, the whole Sm thing gets very overwhelming where everything moves very fast and then it is all quiet because other post fill everyone’s feed. In comparison, people comment and interact over old posts on blog. Of course, those post need to be good and generate idea. I have post which I wrote when I started my blog and has zero likes…in stark contrast to what happens now.

    I always love reading your post because there’s something new to look forward to, all written beautifully with great pictures. Great going, Raj!

      Thank you Arv, I do agree with your assessment on other social channels. It feels great to read your appreciation, you have been always supportive of my blog. Glad to find you in the blogspear. You have one of the greatest travel blogs here. But it makes me feel I have not seen anything yet in India.
