The second post about Paris is a photo essay of the food market and shops along the Rue Mouffetard in Paris, France
Every thing you need for your kitchen can be found along this street from basic foodstuffs like bread, cheese, fruit and vegetables to flowers, wine, useful household goods and the aesthetic details like the beautiful lavender inspired napkins and tablecloths.
Last week I wrote a post about the statistics on my new Cornish blog. I say new as it was started in April 2016 when I relocated to Cornwall. This blog on the other hand has been around since 2013. So I decided to see what has been popular on my other blogs and see if there are any similarities.
All Time Viewings ( from February 2013 when this blog was first published)
Conclusions? My very first post was published in February 2013 and got only one visit at the time. My most recent posts get around 30 likes so things have improved. Of course likes do not necessarily reflect that a person has actually visited and read the post as they can click on like in the Reader without viewing. I judge the popularity of a post by the comments it attracts and to be honest I find this the most enjoyable aspect of blogging. Not that I don’t enjoy writing the posts, I do, but the process is made much more interactive through the people who take the time to not only read or view, but also to make a comment. Often building up a conversation between us all. Over time an online relationship can develop. My blogs tend to be written for myself – especially on this blog where I record trips I have been on – though the photo challenges are different as they are for a wider audience. The most popular posts however appear to be those from my travels and I guess that is from people making searches for a particular location. I certainly hope that what they find is helpful.
Currently I have no trips planned, and in fact since moving to Cornwall I have become very much a ‘stay at home’ person, so posts on this blog will of necessity take a different format throughout this year. To begin with I will start to reblog some of the lesser visited posts from the past and maybe turn to some more travel writing experiences that I have not yet published. I hope that you will continue to follow me and enjoy my posts. I value each and every one of you who stop by and view, like, comment and support my blog. Thank you.
I thank everyone who follows me on this site and who has liked and commented on any of my posts for giving me lots of pleasure over the past five years. I wish you all a safe and happy journey through 2019.
Time is quickly running out for December squares hosted by the lovely Becky. The photos don’t necessarily have to be of a timepiece, but are open to interpretation to reflect time in some way, or sayings such as ‘the passing of time’, ‘a stitch in time’, or ‘time running away from you’.
Day 28 Going Back in Time
My two older brothers and I back in the 1950s when boys were dressed in the same style of clothes as the adults. This must have been a special occasion and most likely the photograph was by a professional. I was about 21 months then and obviously my attention was not focused on the photographer!
To join in with the Squares challenge please visit Becky for instructions. Remember the only proper rule is that the photo must be SQUARE.
