It All Adds Up

Thank You For All Your Support

No blog could ever be popular without people who read it regularly and comment on it every day, just as no book would be a bestseller if people didn't buy it. So it is with great gratitude that I say to all of you that this blog probably wouldn't exist without your support. A few hours ago, I received my 50,000 hit - an appropriate milestone on the last day of the year. My very humble thanks to all of you for your support. I'm also on the verge of my 85,000th page view, and my Technorati authority is 252 and climbing. It's all thanks to you ....

Hi David - I just wanted to let you know that I am back. I've been absent from the blogosphere for almost two weeks and I can't believe I survived ;-) I've missed you and your blog, and I'm looking forward to visiting you on a normal, daily basis again!

P.S. I'm still pouting because I missed the blog-party *sniff* *sniff*

And I respond, David my friend, by thanking you for producing such a wonderful blog.

In 2008, may you have… -
Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks bedside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire

Hello David! Sorry I was the "dud" of the party the other day - I must blame it on my cold (I have spoken "French" the whole week).

It is always enjoyable both to watch and read your blog. Keep up the good work!

A Happy Blogging New Year to You!

It's not all that long ago that I found your blog, otherwise I'd have been a bigger part of the 50,000 hits it got! :)

Lee said...

Ahah! David, I learned something reading that post. I'm registered on Technorati but hadn't explored it very much. Now that I have I'm pleased to find out how it works. Thank you.

I love your blog. It is wonderfully creative and lots of fun. You've put a lot of work into it but I think in some ways it is also play for you too. Congratulations on it being such a success! It's a well deserved honor!

Peace! Hope! & Joy! and a Happy New Year to you!
