Pondering 20,000 views


originally uploaded by eszter.

Less than two months after I celebrated the 10,000th view of my Flickr photostream, I have passed the 20,000 mark. I am not sure how this happened.

It is certainly, in part, thanks to some not-very-exciting images that show up on blogs and then get numerous visitors. For example, this store sign received over 1,500 views after Gina blogged about it on Lifehacker on December 5th, 2005. Or this screenshot of my Firefox settings got over 700 hits. But other recent images I have used to illustrate blog posts haven’t gotten that many hits per see (this Crooked Timber logo has been viewed less than 200 times at the time I write this post).

For reasons I have yet to comprehend, this photo of some friends and me at Millennium Park’s bean sculpture has been getting a lot of views (over 1,800 so far and the numbers keep climbing).

Overall, suffice it to say that I’m not the only one obsessed with Flickr.:-) Thanks for visiting!

If you happened to miss my descriptions of Flickr, I have written up some basics about the service and also have info about how to find great photos on it.
