On the other hand I will try to make more pictures to share them with you when business slow down again :-).

PragueByKaty Blog

Let me post some balancing history of my blog here.

My blog was born in September 2011 with post about which way to go down from Prague castle. Before my blog was born I planned to have a www page about Prague, about my guiding services, but I was not able to start it, as I didn’t know how. Then I participated in Agile conference in Prague, I was there as a help and guide for speakers. After the tour one speaker and his friend they founded a wordpress and twitter accounts for me, so here I am. Therefore, I want to thank Chris Matts and JB for helping me to find this beautiful community and for their kick. I hope you are also lucky to read my posts and enjoy my shots. Big thanks belong also to my husband, who is checking my English. If you find a mistake, it’s because I posted without his help :-).

Excerpt from my WordPress Annual report:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.
