Don't Laugh At Me

When I gingerly first set foot in the world of blogs, my friends all laughed when I told them I wanted to add a humorous bent to the otherwise serious world of news. Well, they're not laughing now...

To any doubting Thomas who didn't believe I'd find an audience, facts speak louder than words. It shouldn't be long before I'm welcoming my 6,000th visitor to the blog, and these same visitors have made almost 10,000 'pageloads'. That 6,000th visitor will be as welcome as the first one was. My own distinctive voice (free from all thought of ego and pride) is destined to find a comfortable home on the internet, and will not easily be quieted.

Thank you, readers - new and old. You've made an old man very happy.

Will the 6,000th visitor win a prize?

nursemyra said...

and I've fuelled your blog too, just so you know we mean it when we say we love you :-)

Bill Blunt said...

Archie - we measure our respective milestones with gallstones, I hope.

Thank you, 70steen. My soft interior is only rarely glimpsed, but my bite can be a lot worse than my bark, too.

Mike Thomas - I'll consult my hectic schedule and see if I can fit an interview in.

Jackie - I appreciate your thoughts, you thinking woman, you!

Domestic Minx - I shall take your prescription with pleasure.

Julian - lovely to hear from you. I'll see if Barbara can dig out some piece of her contemporary art collection which she might be willing to donate to the 6,000th visitor.

Oh, nursemyra - my visits to the Gimcrack have been few and far between, of late, but I shall return!

Bill, your blogging prowess continues to astound us all. And therefore I have tagged you for the latest in memes.
