According to my stats (nice simple plugin), over the last week or so hits to the blog suddenly jumped by about 500 per day (which at a very rough guess might represent 100-150 readers). I’m not at all sure why, but it’s lovely to have you, whoever and wherever you may be. (One of the best things about stats isn’t the raw numbers but the sheer variety of places around the world that readers come from.)
If you’re newish and have never joined in discussions here before, do feel welcome to break the ice and leave a comment on this post. You can just say hello if you like, or you can tell us a bit about yourself. (If you have your own blog and put the URL in the comment form, you are guaranteed at least one visit from me too.) But I’d also be particularly interested to learn about how you found the blog. Were you pointed here by another blogger? Did you stumble across it at Technorati or Google or another search engine? Or some other route?
