Day One

It’s been quite first day for Campaign for Boring Development, aided in no small part by the AP’s Joshua Goodman, who wrote a very flattering story about my departure from my old blog.

One of Venezuela’s most-prominent opposition bloggers, whose English-language musings are a must-read for foreign journalists, academics and political junkies, is leaving his beat as a chronicler of the country’s socialist revolution.


I’m amazed that CfBD reached 1,400 page-views in its first 12 hours: it took Caracas Chronicles three years to reach that level! Then again, we didn’t have Twitter and Facebook back in 2002. Boy have things changed.

One thought on “Day One”

  1. Quico, you also happen to have a large following from CC. People like me, who basically went there to read what you wrote (nothing against JC or Gustavo) and did not comment that often. I also happen to also be somewhat interested in development issues even if me profession is not that close.

    So… good luck.
