One Year On


Amidst the various bits and bobs of daily life, I forgot to note the first anniversary of this blog last Sunday (10th June). Sitemeter tells me that the count for the number of visits stands at 19,210, which, given that I didn't install the meter until a few weeks after starting the blog, and also that I lost the meter for a few weeks when I first switched to Blogger Beta, suggests a true figure for the first year of over 20,000, something I'd never have believed when I started out.

Thanks to everyone whose contributions have enlivened these pages, and hope to hear more from you in the coming year.

Hi Matt
I think the reason people take the time to visit your blog is because you have time for people who are interested in your work. I've met you numerous times at conventions and you've always got a good word (fishpaste usually!) and a good bit of 'crack' as we call it over here - Even when you look absolutely knackered.
Keep up the good work my boy. You'll have your reward in heaven.
