A Quick Thank You

To you!

Look what you did. You got our humble little blog from number 50 in the Wikio rankings to number 45. It doesn't look like much, but the Wikio ranking system makes it pretty damn tough to move up even one place on their complex ladder.

To leap five rungs means we did good.

Check out the neighbours!

When you find yourself sandwiched between two great bloggers, the world takes on a rosy glow.

I can pretend that it's my stunning wit, but it isn't.

I can pretend that it's all down to my boyish good looks, but it isn't.

I can pretend that I am writing articles here that will change the world, but they won't.

I can pretend lots of things, but there is no point.

We are where we are because of you. Because of your continued support, your curiosity, but mostly, because of your great comments.

It may be that I start the conversation but you good people keep it going, and you surprise me continually with your thoughts and your ideas and your originality.

This then, is for you:

It has been an amazing ride so far, and I am especially glad to have you as travelling companions.

you do yourself a disservice, the wit and humour is always welcome-not sure about the 'good' looks-, but I personally feel you have hit a raw nerve with LR and have inspired your followers to keep coming back for more.

Well done CR and just look at you moving up in the world, eh. Friendly, sociable neighbours and all.
I can dream I suppose, but in the meantime I'll be slumming it up on the estates at number 221.
