Today is the 6th anniversary of the start of this particular blog.
It is the third version of my blog: the second was on Typepad and lasted from 24th April 2004 until 3rd February 2008. Most of that seems to survive and there are some interesting essays on that site if I do say so myself,
My first blog was on Blogspot and has deteriorated over time. I started it on 23rd September 2001 in response to 9/11, and transferred to Typepad in April 2004.
We’ve had over half a million views on version 3 of the blog which, I know, is puny compared to a lot of sites, but which seems like an awful lot of visitors to me. I am truly grateful to each and every one of you who takes a moment or more to read these scratchings.
Onward for the next six years!
