I started this blog on April 1st.
In April I got just over 8000 visits, and in May almost 28,000. Thanks readers! I think I can allow myself a little indulgence of some sherry wood finish Glenmorangie to celebrate.
But I’m not doing it for the numbers (though I have to admit it feels good to see a spike). It’s for fun, and it has been more fun than I ever imagined.
I’m gong to continue looking for stories that readers might not otherwise hear about. Repeating what the other blogs say is not my thing…though I may have done that a couple of times. I think it was Jeff Id at the Air Vent who said: to blog successfully, you have to spend a lot of time reading. THAT’S TRUE. Writing is acutally the easy part. Some bloggers have got to be going through reams of literature.
My highlight post for May was gate-blowup. It didn’t pull in the most traffic, but it’s the one I was most satisfied with. I’ll be updating it in the future.
And one more thing – not once did I have to snip a reader’s comment because of bad behaviour. To me that says a lot about the kind of readers us sceptics get. This claim that we’re all a gang of angry, belligerent malcontents is yet another warmist fantasy. Such rubbish they put out sometimes.
Keep stopping by!
