Monday was the one-year anniversary of D.C. Confidential and today is my birthday. This blog started with an entry about Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, the destination of last year's birthday activities. Here are some statistics:
Most entries in a month: 36 in March 2008
Least entries in a month: 7 in October 2007
Most pictures in an entry in one day: 16
Least pictures in an entry in one day: 0
Most comments in an entry: 15 (here and here)
Total number of posts since launch: 260 (including today's posts about D.C.'s Fish Market and a continuation of my current series on Rock Creek Park. Scroll down to see and read them.)
My most favorite entry: The ones where I find cools facts and figures. Again, too numerous to pick just one. I've learned a ton about Washington, D.C., just by virtue of writing this blog.
My least favorite entry: The ones on embassies. They're kind of dull and informational only.
My most favorite photo: Too numerous to list, but I think any of the photos involving the Lincoln Memorial are among my favorites. Then again, a lot of the natural photography I've shot has been nice... See what I mean? I can't decide.
My least favorite photo: Again, the embassy ones. They're just a snap. I didn't try to be artistic and I shoot most of them during the worst light of the day--11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Visitors from every continent have visited this blog. The furthest north: Canada's Yukon Territories. The furthest south: Terra del Fuego in Argentina.
Some of you have asked about the equipment I use to take my photographs and what software I use for editing. I use a Canon A630 and edit using iPhoto software on my Apple MacBook. My goal in the next year is to upgrade to a good DSLR with a few lenses and add Adobe Photoshop to my Mac.
I want to thank everyone who has visited D.C. Confidential in the last year. My goal has been and remains to bring America's national capital in picture and fact to friends and visitors worldwide. Thank you for making it possible and worthwhile!
For anyone who wants cake, come on by!
