1,000 not out!

It is with great pleasure and not a little surprise that I find myself typing this - my Thousandth blog post!
Though the blog was started in 2008, it was late 2009 before it really got going.  Here are a few boring statistics for you:


8,374 Comments to date

359,180 Pageviews to date, including 11,170 during the last month.

129 The number of other blogs I follow.

Based on the past week's pageviews, the audience is located as follows:
United Kingdom 807
United States 741
Russia 150
Germany 105
France 58
Australia 42
New Zealand 32
Canada 29
Poland 25
Italy 24

Given all this it looks as if I'd better carry on!  My thanks as always to all readers, especially those of you who take the time to leave comments - they are much appreciated.

The coming weeks will see a couple of game announcements, the start of a new series of 'themed' posts and a competition with actual prizes!

And it's a real thousand - not an actuarially reduced one....

Tim Gow said...

Martin Rapier
Thanks - but you are responsible for a fair bit of the content.

Tim Gow said...

Don M
You want more of this? Really?

Stephen Thomas said...

Well done Tim. Keep calm and carry on.

Re the competitions, I do hope it's not to be Bingo!!! That would be very tabloid. Having said that, uniformed ladies on page three might work.

All the best,

Well as we've put up with it this long I suppose we shouldn't stop now! :o)

Excellent achievement Tim, may your next 1000 be every bit as enjoyable as the first.

I'd never challenge your numeracy with anything as complicated as bingo!

Tim Gow said...

Thanks old chap!

Tim Gow said...

Wg Cdr Luddite
Me buy drinks? Have we met?

Tim Gow said...

You're right - why should I let you off now?

Archduke Piccolo said...

I go along with the others. Having achieved such success it would scarcely do to stop now, if you were really thinking such thoughts! Besides, this is one of my favorite stopping places...

I'll have you know I can think of 90 responses to your comment.
Unfortunately I lost count after . . er . . . some!

As I've already said, for as long as you chaps are prepared to read this rubbish I'll keep producing it,

Nice one Tim.

Well played, old fruit!

Paul Foster said...

A 1000 posts is nothing to sneeze at Tim.

Well done on producing such good quality reads and effecting bodges on a scale that begs belief.

All this and mass gaming as well!

Model on man.

tradgardmastare said...

Give you joy of your thousand sir!

Tim Gow said...

Dancing Cake Tin
I'm sure you'll soon catch me up!

Tim Gow said...

Paul Foster
My bodges beggar belief? It's been said before!

Tim Gow said...

Thanks Alan - keep reading!

Arthur said...


Splendid work, keep it up.

Had I been near an internet access point this past week you would have had a connection from Kenya, too.


Tim Gow said...

And there was me worrying that you and Dog had stopped reading my posts!
