April Fool's day is a pretty inauspicious day to start something new, but it does mark the beginning of my year in blogging. A whole year today. One hundred and eighty eight posts, thirty-thousand odd visits, forty seven subscribers, two hundred and forty nine bloglines feeds (yup - I really need to rationalize those), sixty three blogs which link here.
Reducing things to numbers never does tell the real story does it?
Because the number that means the most to me, is the one I can't count. The incredible number of new friends to share with - our triumphs, our sympathy, our plans, our laughs. They don't do a counter for that.
So, thank you friends. I can't tell you what fun it has been to share this past year with you. And never being one to miss out on the chance to celebrate, leave me a comment and I'll get the boys to draw names for a bit of a giveaway...
