Well blow me down! 1,000,000 page views (bots notwithstanding….) and nearly (at 10:33 last night I was 60 views away from the million but it was reached on the 27th) on my 62nd birthday - who would have thought it!?
Nearly an uncanny coincidence for sure, but a welcome one.
This blog has been and continues to be for me so much more than a mere list of ramblings about various projects that have waxed and waned over the years - it is an integral part of my hobby and I am truly fortunate to have built up a modest following of kindred spirits that enjoy what I do and offer help and support in equal measure. I have allowed personal real life stuff in, all the while knowing that there is a sympathetic and supportive pair of eyes somewhere out there that will interact with me and provide a welcome distraction.
To everyone that has read or commented on my numerous flights of fancy over the years I extend my sincerest thanks and gratitude.
It means a lot.
Taking stock of a million page views and reaching 62 would, in certain quarters, be viewed as something to look back on with satisfaction and a degree of pride and for sure I am both of these things up to a point. The point is of course that never-to-be-scratched itch of things new and shiny or even of old things that are new and shiny that drives one onwards. I reckon I am good for enough content for another million page views although another 62 years may be a challenge….
Thank you all once again.
