I’m amazed at how big the Fuji X Weekly blog has become. When I started this website I thought it was going to have a handful of subscribers and maybe a couple hundred views daily, maybe. I never imagined it becoming what it is now.
I transformed the blog from the original concept, which was initially a Fujifilm X100F journal, expanding it to all things Fujifilm, but focused on my personal experiences with the brand. Of course, the big thing is all the film simulation recipes. That’s the reason why most people found this blog and what a lot of people appreciate about it. The top 15 most viewed posts of all time are related to film simulation recipes. I’m always getting requests for different film simulations. I really wish that I had more time to focus on creating all sorts of different recipes. There are a few that I’m currently working on as time allows.
The month of May was a big one for Fuji X Weekly. It seemed as though monthly viewership had plateaued. For five straight months this blog received over 40,000 views, but never reaching the 50,000 mark. This last month, however, saw over 57,000 views from over 15,000 unique visitors. There are also over 300 subscribers now. The total views this year has already surpassed last year’s total. May was amazing! All of this is way beyond what I ever thought possible.
I appreciate all of you. I’m so happy you have chosen to be a part of this blog. I have several things that I’m hoping to implement in the coming weeks and months to make Fuji X Weekly even better. And stay tuned for more film simulation recipes, because I will continue to create them. There’s obviously a need, and I’m happy to help with that. Thank you for supporting this website. Thank you, Fuji X Weekly readers, for visiting, commenting, and sharing. I’m just an ordinary guy doing this, you all are extraordinary and make this what it is.
A side note that I’d like to pass on is a photo contest on Instagram (not by me, I’m not affiliated with it whatsoever). You can find the details on Instagram @meerophoto or by visiting fisheyemagazine.fr. The winner gets a Fujifilm X-T30. Check it out if that’s something you are interested in participating in. If one of you happens to win, be sure to let me know.
