I missed an important event.
On the 22nd of June this blog was a year old!
In that year it had 63,284 page views, from 31,744 visitors. Since the birthday that I missed the totals have gone up to 71,520 views and 35,564 visitors. I could never have imagined that so many people would read what I had to say. I am fairly confident that writing this blog has helped me cope as much as it has informed or entertained anyone else, so thank you all for staying with me.
Of course, it wasn’t until the 24th of November, when I wrote about a certain police van at a minor protest in London that anyone apart from Phill, Alex or my mum read my blog. Perhaps that should be considered its real birthday.
