I started this blog, in a nervous and tentative fashion, back in 2008. This week it registered its 100,000th visitor.

I have no idea if that's a lot or pitifully few, but it feels like a lot to me! That's a full-to-capacity MCG. If I had a dollar for every pageview... well, I'd be very happy. But I'm happy anyway, even without the dollars.

I know people say that blogs are dead, that it's all happening on Instagram and Twitter. But I don't like change, and I'm comfortable with my sporadic blog activity and my Facebook browsing. Once I'm in a groove (you could even say -- ahem! -- a rut) it take a lot to budge me out of it.

So this humble blog is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Even if no one is looking.


  1. Who says blogging is dead? No way! Blogging is like getting regular letters from lovely friends all over the world. And I love your blog, Kate, so don't stop. Even though I've been out of the loop for a year, yours is one of the first I've come back to. 100,000 is awesome! Congratulations!!

  2. Whatever happens. DO NOT STOP BLOGGING! Please?
