It’s My Birthday!
Ok, well it’s not MY birthday, but it is the birthday of RomePhotoBlog. That’s right, exactly one year ago today I wrote my first post. To be honest I didn’t think that anyone would even read it (besides my mom, of course), but I’ve been pleasantly surprised and humbled by the number of people who have taken the time to log on, read my blog, write emails, and make comments. Really knowing that people were actually looking at the blog made me want to go out and take even more pictures. It’s completely amazing to me how much has happened in the past year. When I started this blog I was in a rut and feeling down and needed an excuse to put myself out there more. I never would have imagined all the interesting opportunities that would have come from this, whether it be exhibits, getting published on Budget Travel, or meeting new people. Here’s to another year in the life of Rome (and my life in Rome).
As for the photo, it’s one of the first I published on the blog and probably the first one I shot that I was really happy with. A symptom of all the random photos to come, it’s just my caffettiera on the stove.
