Yes, it has reached that time! It really was one year ago to the day when I decided, aided by my very helpful and supportive girlfriend Madeleine, to set up a blog showcasing my writing and my major passions. Since starting off with this first post 12 month ago, I have continued to showcase my writing, as well as expanding it to includephotographs I have taken, my own creative writing and reviewing places of interest. I really do thank you for your support. Discovering your great blogs, as well as hearing your insight on my posts, has just added to the experience. This blog wouldn’t be anything without you.
Later today I will reveal my favourite posts, but first I wanted to share some data information I think you might find interesting.
The top five countries who most read my blog are the UK, US, France, Germany and Canada. Miss Piggy is the most looked for item in my blog, for which I have this post to thank. Columbo, Unlce Phil and Clara Bow are also popular. There’s also loads of individual links to this musical Line(s) of the Day which must certainly have been a nightmare to sing live!
Below are the most popular post in each category:
Awards: Three in One
Creative: Yesterday’s Tomorrow
Film Quizzes: Modern Films Ignored by the Academy
Gr8at: World Cup Mascots
Guest Series: Jagten (The Hunt)
