2nd Year Anniversary of La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo

Traditional Guatemalan Marimba Players

Day one of year three. Are you ready for the new tour of 365 days around La Antigua Guatemala? If you do please, bring your pasaje en mano, dónde caben tres caben más.

Every time humans arrive at a milestone, we tend to review what we have traveled thus far. Two years of consecutive blogging is not much or even important in the big scale of things. Nonetheless, it is a big achievement for me since I have never done anything like this before. I am very happy to have reached this time mark and to have helped others in the process. I thank all my regular visitors for your support, comments, feedback and donations.

Now let see the La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo in numbers (like Edgar would put it): In the last 731 consecutive days, there have been 744 entries, 6 pages, 13 drafts, 5037 comments, over 1,000 emails with feedback or questions, 624,604 visits (80,099 in 2006, 371,172 in 2007 and 173,333 so far in 2008), 120,616 spam comments. The website began its life with Blogger under a sub-domain and in less than three months moved to its present home of antiguadailyphoto.com and platform of WordPress 1.2 (now version 2.5.1). All in all there have been over a thousand photos published here in the last two years.

More Numbers Updates: About 1,300 sites linking to antiguadailyphoto.com according to Google, 1,442 blog reactions according to Technorati, over 1600 hours invested in maintaining this website, 4 plagiarized photos that I know of, over 100 photos used with permission or proper photo credit by other websites, 2 newspaper articles, several photos found its way into magazines and 1 photo found its way as a book cover. Not too bad, don’t you think so?

What other numbers do you guys think I should shared with you?

    Congratulation on the 2nd Year Anniversary of La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo. I started visiting this site back in early December 2007 and have not gone more than 2 days without checking the cool pictures/post and comments. I have recommeneded this site to family members and friend (both in Guate and abroad).

    I think it’s time for an ayudante so that Rudy can become the chief editor.

    Keep it up! Your hard work and effort does not go to waste.
