As part of the process of reacquainting myself with this whole…thing, I’ve been looking at old posts and statistics to remind myself of what goes on around here. Amongst the things I haven’t quite wrapped my head around is the fact that one innocuous little post from five years ago seems to consistently draw more views than anything else on the site: my brief review of the Yashica J-Mini.
No, I can’t explain it either.
It’s not as if there’s some incredible insight contained therein. It’s just a short, almost perfunctory review of a camera I’ve used very little – by my count I’ve shot six rolls with since I got, the last in 2016. It’s not, at least from what I’ve been able to determine, a particularly common camera. Why are people looking at this post over and over again?
I’m genuinely curious. If you’ve gotten here by whatever means specifically to read that post – and I have to imagine that’s the case for a considerable portion of its views – please tell me why and how you did so.
