Thank you so much, to all readers for following my blog! When I changed last August from my little [bad SEO'ed] iWeb account, to the blogger platform, I was not sure. It still doesn't feel as natural to do some posts as the Apple program - but hell did the views skyrocketed!
I can remember that my all time views after 4 years of www.opinionated-alchemist.com via iWeb was around 6,000 views.
Now not even one year later on blogger, we are talking of 60,000 views - which are even growing day to day quite stable.
Well yes - I am easier to find.
By the way - the most read post was my post, which compares ginger ale with ginger ale.
Thank you very much google - a lot of people are looking apparently for an answer here.
Second most successful post was my post about the El Diablo. I never thought, that this drink can be so successful - yes, I like the drink, but who knew, that so many people join my taste?
And then on a surprisingly "low" number 3 - was the "perfect mojito" post. I got quite a lot of views from Germany- as it was in a blog post of the mixology magazine.
Further to my 60,000 milestone [yes - guys like Jamie Boudreau, Jeffrey Morgenthaler and Darcy O'neil might laugh about a misery 60,000 - I am sure, that they have almost that much in a month. But hey- I am not them, they are not me; and I am still proud].
And - there is "one more thing".
The opinionated alchemist will leave Abu Dhabi very soon.
One year in the capital is enough. I think, that we did incredible things in Skylite [compared to other bars and beverage programs in the country]. But unfortunately it didn't really met my expectation in volume and overall guest feedback. Hence I decided that it is time, to look for a new appointment.
I will post soon, what it will be [yes I signed already up - but I still don't want to take my mouth too full, until everything is settled]. Anyway - while I flirted with some opportunities in several locations in Far East - I will go back to Dubai.
Stay tuned to learn more.
