A Gem of an Island

I like numbers. 347 is not a very special number, really, but it is quite a lot of daily blog entries.

I am less than 20 days away from my Mallorca Daily Photo Blog‘s one year anniversary.

I do not know how many readers MDPB has, but over 40,000 clicks so far surprised me quite a bit when compared to my initial expectations. A sizeable number of visitors seem to be regular readers which is pleasing. They seem to be UK, Spain or Ireland based, on the whole, but readers also seem to come from France, Italy, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, and Germany. Many pages get translated by Google, albeit with often laughable results. But it is rewarding to see that those translations are done in Greek, Dutch, French, Italian, German, and, wait, a totally unexpected avalanche of Asian languages, such as Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Indian.

Who would ever have thought. Good for Mallorca, if there is such an international interest out there for this small gem of an island.

I have recently started a German Mallorca Foto Blog version but it is early days yet, too early to evaluate any success so far. We’ll see.

Anyway, good to talk to you.

The photo was taken in Port d’Alcúdia, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 18th, 2008. The time was 15:27:27.

  1. As one of your regular and avid readers, I look forward to your fantastic photos and interesting snippets of information everyday. I live and work in the UK, but have a house in Mallorca and manage to get down there every few weeks. However, when back in the UK your daily blog manages to fill in the bleak periods in between visits. Congratulations on your first anniversary. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hi Philip,

    I know you have left comments before. I normally do not respond to comments as a matter of principle but today, I will make an exception. Thank you very much for your regular visits and more so, for your very kind words and your good wishes.
