I started this blog six years ago, with a post about Alan Davidson, who had died, followed by a post about Reed Elsevier and academic publishing, an account of the Varsity match, a diatribe against Southern Railways and a selection at the December Cheltenham meeting. Plus ça change, except this week I cursed Southern on Twitter, instead of in a blog post. In 2005 I established the running blog, which has never been as popular. The statistics below are solely for this blog.
Here I am, 1430 posts later. I can't offer as rigorous an analysis as Brian Kelly did on the third anniversary of his UK Web Focus blog, but there've been 118,080 unique page views and 556 of you have been provoked into commenting.
Tempus fugit. I am older. My son is now old enough to buy me beer. Thank you for your attention.
