Three years and still ‘trying’.
Posted by Big John on December 27, 2006
It is now three years since my daughter set up a blog for me and gave me the ‘nom de blog’ of ‘bigjohn‘. At the time she thought that it might help to keep me out of mischief after my retirement.
“OK”, I said “I’ll give it a try”, never believing that I would ever find enough to write about or that anyone would be interested in the ramblings of a grumpy old fart like me.
Much to my surprise, I find that three years later, I have written nearly 1,000 posts, have had well over 2,000 comments and have received almost 200,000 hits, although I suspect that this last figure may be open to question as most of these ‘hits’ were when I was with ‘blog-city’ and they are still showing that I am getting ‘hit’ at an average rate of 300 per day despite the fact that I no longer post there.
I must confess that I am beginning to slow down a bit and have considered departing from the ‘blogosphere’, but have decided that I will plod on for a bit longer (I’ll try not to repeat myself too often) as I do enjoy ‘meeting‘ all you interesting people out there. Not to mention the pleasure it gives me being able to let off steam and rant about the bloody ‘royals’ … our crap politicians … etc. etc.
So all I can say is … Thanks a lot for spending time with me … and …
… Please keep watching this space.
