Friday Mystery Photos
About one year ago I had an idea about doing consistent weekly posts on the same day, with a goal to get my visitors to expect and look forward to those posts. The goal was to provide something different and interesting and bring people back to my blog. So on every Friday I decided to publish a photo with undisclosed location and let readers to identify it. I usually post the answer and acknowledge everyone that knew the place on Saturday or Sunday. Yesterday’s post was #49, almost one year of “Friday Mystery Photos”!
I think a lot of folks had fun identifying places where they have been or saw on someone else’s photos, or just did a guess. One thing that I was expecting, completely did not materialize, is the number of people visit my blog on Fridays. About the same number of you guys stopped by here yesterday as any Friday in March, or as any Friday six or twelve months ago. So this whole idea about getting people addicted to every Friday Mystery Photo really didn’t work on a grand scale. I’m sure there are a few of you who comes here every Friday (thanks guys!), but it did not accumulate as I thought it would. I guess some smarty pants advertisement and marketing guru would have a perfect explanation for it.
I have no intensions to quit on with this mystery photo trend and I’ll do my best to keep it going and find something new for every Friday of the month and I hope you find it interesting to see some cool places and maybe actually know where it is.
And I especially like those Fridays when my wife asks me where I took it, as she pretty much knows every place I have been in the last few years.
Today’s photo takes us back to the lovely San Francisco. I took this photo from a pier at the Maritime National Historic Park. The one that curves like a bow.
