    • Thank you very much for your beautiful words that really pushed me to keep going. Photography is a hobby that I love, but I’ve come to ask whether it is worth going ahead with this blog because I have very few followers and that sometimes disappoint me. I do not want to pay the upgrade to WordPress, Copromote and other offers, that’s why blog does not grow. Companies prevent it. Even so, I prefer just real followers, not millions of virtual followers. Better quality than quantity!!!!!!
      Blessings
