I’ve just realised that the blog hit three (almost) significant milestones over the weekend – 400 posts, 1,000 comments and 200,000 page views. Thank you to everyone who reads my (often off-message) ramblings and an extra thank you to those of you who, even more incredibly, stop by to comment as well.
