Not a word that most folks in the know would associate with me I suspect. Overly-assertive, opinionated and critical are just three of my wife’s favourite descriptors. And she loves me, so you can imagine my detractors’ personal descriptions. But today this sad little grumpy old man’s rant site achieved another milestone – its 150,000th visitor. How many? Just the ….
You can see why humble is not a word which naturally attracts itself to my description. But then again I am a bloody appreciative blogger – or blagger for short.
And I’m pretty sure this amazing total’s not down to my wife’s visits, who thinks I’m bloody boring and full of waffle. At least that’s what I pretend to think she said. Ah well I guess C gets the rambling verbal version of most of this stuff before you guys get the oh-so-crisp edited editions. Anyway I’m very grateful to all the readers who come by and simply look and read, and especially grateful to those who actually comment on the postings – particularly those members of my extended family who seem to be my most assertive, opinionated and critical commentators. I wonder if there’s something in the blood-line?
Thank you one and all – I’m grateful for every single visit. Truly.
Do you want to know which postings have driven the most visits since I started this blog? Thought not but here they are anyway:
|syrups, it’s a pity!||2,775|
|dress sense…or not||1,665|
|great grass, man||1,661|
|it’s the little things that are so annoy||1,135|
Would you have figured that? Nor me. Though it does suggest a lot of people check out the home page and decide to go no further. Oh come on folks; it’s only some opinion. I don’t really bite.
Anyway I seem to be full of the writing muse (not quite C’s words) at the moment so please keep checking in and I’ll try and write something worthy of your effort and interest. And if not it’ll be the same old, same old rants and ravings and ….rubbish.
Thanks a 6.7th of a million folks
That’s a little deceptive. I return to the homepage every time I want to go somewhere else on the website, simply because navigating is easier that way.
Ah ok UI.
Many thanks for checking in, you’re welcome anytime.
Great figures for a great blog. Keep ’em coming!
many thanks hel.
ps am finding it impossible to comment on your blog through the process. is it because i’m using an apple?
Good going on the stats old chap – looking forward to the 1,000,000th!
BTW, best not to use fruit as a means of communication, in the current age of new media computers seem to be more in vogue.
many thanks for the sound advice – will keep it electronic in future.
