Fausto, who runs the reservations office at a small two-star hotel in Venice called the Alloggi Barbaria, has been publishing the Alloggi Barbaria Blog about Venice at alloggibarbaria.blogspot.com since 2008. Recently, after nearly five years, his blog statistics showed that his total traffic had reached 1,000,000 visitors--an excellent showing for a specialized destination blog.
According to a recent post, Fausto is wondering whether to continue or close his blog. We hope he'll keep it going, even if he cuts back on the number of new posts due to time constraints and the pressures of his job. The Alloggi Barbaria Blog covers hundreds of topics, is illustrated with the author's own photos, and offers a pleasant reading experience for anyone who's visited Venice and wants to keep up with local news, Venetian daily life, and things to see.
