Every once in a while, when I check my web stats, I discover that visitors are flocking to The Landscapist in incredibile numbers. Yesterday was one of those days - over 1,000 first-time visitors and over 2,000 page loads.
As is always the case whenever this happens, the stampede is attributable to a mention (usually about something I have written) with a link to The Landscapist posted by one of the blog-o-sphere's 'biggies'. Yesterday's 'biggie' was Scott Kelby, the #1 Bestselling computer/ technology author (26 books on Photoshop, digital imaging, and technology) in the world for the past three years straight. Scott also is the editor/publisher of Photoshop User Magazine, Darkroom magazine (all about Adobe Lightroom), training director and instructor for the Adobe Photoshop Seminar Tour and President National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).
Scott's site is devoted to, you guessed it, all things Adobe Photoshop / Lightroom so it's was bit of a surprise to find the following sandwiched in all the PS/LR news, scoops and tips - I ran across this blog this past week, and I just really found the photography interesting. It’s called “The Landscapist” but it’s not your typical landscape photography site ... [T]here’s just something about their stuff I really like. Give it a look-see ...
Thanks, Scott (but you didn't say a thing about my brilliant PS work). Even more amazing is that not one of the more than 1,000 first-time visitors had anything - good, bad or indifferent - to say about anything. Not that I'm complaining. Just thought I'd mention it.
