Sometimes it’s good to do a sanity check on a blog. You’ve got to go back in time and see if anyone says anything good about your blog…well at least you’ve got to find something out there about your blog…otherwise you’re writing all to yourself. That’s what I did…I went back through my analytics reports provided by Google Analytics.
I have started OrganizePictures.com in August 2006…long time ago…21 months to be more precise. I have written many articles on organizing digital pictures and other photography related topics. While, my site is not a true photography blog (I don’t display any of my pictures, since I’m not a professional photographer), quite a few people find my photography management tutorials helpful. Anyway…here are my numbers:
- Total number of articles: 118
- Total page views: 17308
- Total visits: 6000 (yes…exactly 6k as I’m writing)
- Unique visitors: 4599
- Feed subscriptions: 23

Does anyone care about OrganizePictures.com?
The answer is yes! But, as it is true with any blog, the more effort I put into my articles the more useful my blog becomes. This was certainly true for 2008 when I started to write a bit more frequently and a bit more detailed. I slowly started to be mentioned here and there and appear on some blogs or bookmarks of photographers. Below are a list of some of the “cool” places my blog has been mentioned.
Popular Photography Magazine – Pop Flash Blog
Melissa Macatee is a contributing writer for one of the many blogs on the Popular Photography website. She has written about OrganizePictures.com on her Tip of the Day column. You can check out her entry HERE. Too bad she read my site before I have added two articles about creating precise keywords for organize pictures. Anyway, her review was very good I thought.
A few individual photographers
- Brian Auer – this guy is amazing! On top of creating some great pictures, Brian is all over the internet. He touches everything that has to do with photography…forums, StumbleUpon, Digg, PhotographyVoter…everything. I don’t know how he does it, being married and having kids and a job on top of that. He only added a couple of articles to his delicious list and made me “popular”…somewhat.
- John DeBord – Take a look at his nature pictures…they’re great!
There you have it…OrganizePictures.com in a nutshell.
