It was a year ago today that I decided that I required a blog. I cannot remember who suggested it, but I do owe them a debt of gratitude.
The reason was because I was generally quite bored. I am less bored now!
The highlight was my review of Cocoon In The Park being mentioned on a Facebook post by Sven! I did quite enjoy my political postings too – and a lot of people visited my blog on the day of the election, 48 in total, which beat my previous record of 17 by some way! 58 came from Cocoon In The Park. And also 58 on the day that Russia were announced as hosting the 2018 World Cup.
And I have had visitors from 76 countries across the world. 1,984 different people across the world have visited my blog. Enough to fill a good nightclub. Visitors have definitely grown over time. I know my blog is far away from having a significant impact on society, but the main reason I do it, is because when I find things of interest, I want to share them with as many people as possible. Whether that be good music (see my top tunes blog), something funny or just my opinion on something…I’m just trying to make the world a better place, at least in my perspective of ‘better’.
Anyway, I just wanted to mark the occasion. Happy 1st birthday dear blog.
I’ve had plenty of fun along the way, and I intend on trying to make it as enjoyable for myself as possible. And hopefully that will replicate into you continuing to enjoy it too.
