And close to a year since LOL was launched I did have a wobble. But a few things happened this week to buoy me up.
First I got three - yes three- new subscribers.
Then I met a man in the street who said how great his friends in New Zealand thought it was when he sent to URL to help them understand Lyng. That is/was always one of the reasons the world-wide web was such a good idea (thank you Tim Berners Lee).
And then I took a look at the statistics for the site. Now you need to know a few things. We have about 70 subscribers in a village of 360 houses. Not exactly brilliant to be honest. We send out updates round about weekly.
After my update on Saturday (31/1) we had over 600 page views and 90 unique visitors. And 500 page views the next day! That means that more than all of my known subscribers visited the site (OK some may have visited twice!) and between them looked at all, or very nearly all of the pages I sent links to.
Happy? I am ecstatic. Well, pleased anyway.
By the way there are now 102 pages on this site and if I sometimes seem to have a link broken I blame my memory.
