What You Did and How I’ve Tried to Honor it!

Let’s start by highlighting what you did in 2021 for FujiRumors:

  • about 50,000 comments on FR-articles (about 130 comments a day)
  • 151,680 votes in our polls

Your massive participation is the reason why Fujifilm reads us with greatest care, as proven multiple times such as here, here and here.

I did try to honor your massive participation by working as hard as I could, with the added challenge that this year I became father, which made working consistently on FujiRumors not always the easiest thing.

But I did try hard, and here are some numbers. You judge if that’s good enough to deserve your time and trust.

  • 867 blog posts written in 2020 (average of 2.37 articles every single day of the year – weekends and “holidays” included)
  • 83 rumors shared
  • 92,8% correct rumors (rumor check here – but quite frankly, it’s more a 99% accuracy. I explained why in this article)
  • about 18 messages written every day to those of you who contacted via fujirumor@gmail.com, Facebook and Twitter and Instagram Direct
  • 560+ replied comments in the various FujiRumors articles
  • 100% Free ;)

Phew!! :)
