This is my one thousandth post!


     When I started blogging in 2007 I had no idea what an important part of my life it would become. Some folk keep diaries, others journals. But my blog is nothing more than a place to record whatever is going through my mind at any particular  moment be it a story, a poem, a memory or a random thought. Some posts attract no hits at all, and the majority struggle to reach double figures. Yet others get masses of readers. For instance chapter 19 of my autobiographical series A Chequered Career has so far netted 1,890 visits whilst My FriendRosey who has a large following regularly attracts over 1000 readers to each episode. I little thing I wrote about Facebook called Our Friends are Revolting has bizarrely scored 3874 hits to date and it’s still rising!

     But that’s not what drives me to continue. For me it’s personal, and if anyone else gets pleasure from it, then that’s a bonus for me. So continue I shall. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Your support over the years has been greatly appreciated.

  3. That's good going, Keith! I don't look at the stats etc but I'm up to 470 posts or so and I started in September 2011. It's addictive, isn't it? Merry Christmas, sir :)
