Once again, I forgotted

Oh, lookee, it was 4 years ago yesterday that I started this blog.

Since then there have been 3,337 posts, 4,554 comments and 519,278 words.

There have been four salient points, two well thought out posts, several thousand instances of insults being dispensed and many hundreds comparisons of leading Labour politicians to pieces of anatomy.

Sitemeter says that I have received 59,660 visits, although I’m sure that 50,000 of them were me.

I have spawned somewhere in the region of zero blog offspring, but that’s OK because I couldn’t afford to school any.

I’ve used two different content management systems, and am on my second domain. I’ve uploaded 13 different themes that I can switch between depending on how daft I want the page to look.

Over the years, I deleted about half a dozen posts that I’d written under the influence of alcohol (and thusly made no sense whatsoever) and corrected hundreds of typos caused by my high-speed-low-accuracy method of typing. Some of these were noticed and highlighted by unkind pedants, but since I’m an unkind pedant to others, I probably shouldn’t complain too much.

Through the site, I’ve met several very cool people, and Nelly, who is beyond cool. If this was Top Gear, they’d have to move the DB9 out of the fridge and put the Garden in there. I have – thus far – managed to avoid meeting and of the twats who apparently populate teh interweb, unless you count some of those interesting conversations with myself.

Most of all, though, I’ve had a laugh, and I’ve gotten a lot of bad juju out of me by putting it into sweary rants here. So I think I’ll keep it going, if that’s alright.

Obvious note: I should have realised this yesterday and posted it then. But I’m an idiot, so I didn’t.

  1. Happy Anniversary! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years! Four More Years!

  2. Right, let’s see… From when I read when I originally started? 3 are in the same place, doing the same thing. A couple are doing the same thing at a different address. Some have gone towards being group blogs, which I tend not to read as much as I did when they posted individually. And most have just stopped. And one of ‘em is dead.

    ‘course, the ones that are doing the same thing at a different address include me, so they probably count as active.

    Whadda mean, it was a rhetorical question?

  3. Beyond Cool? I’ll take that as a compliment then.

    Keep on blogging – you’re one of the best around. And you’re always up for the ould blogmeet or four.

    Anyway better stop right now, You know how jealous Marc and Stephen can get.

  4. I’m being nosey. I’ve to e-mail someone from the ‘media’ about blawgs from this here country. I’m sure he knows about you but if he doesn’t I might just tell him NaNaNaNaNa ;-)

    I like the template -by the way

  5. Nelly, ’twas meant as a compliment.

    Sandra: ta muchly.

    CS: Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na. Why was the nana-ing, again?

    I was listening to Bananrama at the time I left my last comment here
