Milestones

17 01 2012

So I started this blogging lark when a work colleague suggested it as a release for my pent up creative juices. Or something.

That was December 13th… exactly 5 weeks ago today. In that time I’ve apparently acquired 50 followers (including some email followers), and had 1200 hits on the blog’s various pages, with a peak of 149 in a single day. I am (to use a phrase from the old country) gob-smacked! These are not the figures of a more well-established blog I realise, but I’m amazed I’ve attracted so much attention with my random (quiet irrelevant) burblings.

Thank-you kind readers. I only hope you’ve found a few words of entertainment or even education along the way, in these scribblings.

Now let’s go find some more lines to cross together…

Oh yes! The full litany of expletives. According to Peter Silverton (author of the wonderful FILTHY ENGLISH, the reason that an American cock is called a rooster and that a tap (once also called a cock) is called a faucet, is because of the pudency of the Americans; so they went around renaming things that had the word cock, amongst other things. It’s a great book.

Excellent – I’ll add it to my http://www.bookdepository.com wish list. Thanks for the lead…
I was actually referencing the verb, BTW.

Yea, it’s good stuff. Glad you’re enjoying. Sorry I haven’t been getting to your posts these last couple of days, but I’ve been struggling with time and a lousy internet connection.

Ha! Don’t you worry about that. I always enjoy your quips, but it’s not the ONLY reason I post! 🙂
I’m away for a week in Victoria, so you’ve got time to catch up probably…

Just be yourself! It’s not a competition. I’ll swing by more often. How’s that for a start?
