Since I started this blog nearly a year ago on April 9th 2012, I have officially reached 500 posts as I publish this one, and to celebrate the occasion I once again would like to thank everyone that has been following.
You’re the people that make me come back and continue with it, and you’re the people that make me think about “what should I post about today?” at least a couple of times a day. Even when I launch into an immature whinging screed about my first world problems, it feels good to have you lot here.
A blog is not a megaphone for one person to shout out into the wild; it is a conversation, a dialogue, and you certainly have talked back to me. Not always what I wanted, or hoped, to hear, but always with dignity and respect I think. Well, apart from the few trolls I’ve had, but there have been remarkably few of those. Maybe the walls of text have hit the trolls for terminal damage.
Over these last 500 posts you lot have made 3011 comments, so on average there are six comments per post. That makes me humble, and grateful, and dare I say it a little bit proud that I’ve attracted the best audience ever.
