Blog: 2010 in review

[Happy New Year! As you can see, I’ve switched to a completely different blog theme and layout, a fresh start for a new season, with bigger easier-to-read text and far less clutter on the page, not to mention I finally have a header image now! I hope you like the redesign and bear with me while I iron out the kinks and final colours etc. A similar change has been made to my personal blog to keep a common thread between my sites.
This is quite self-indulgent, apologies for that. The following stats were sent to me as an email by WordPress, it offered the option to publish it and I thought.. why not? I’m not one to crow but I’m really pleased with how the site grew in visitors over the past year, and I also thought you might be interested in the most popular posts in 2010. Thanks to everyone who stopped by in 2010 and I hope you’re interested enough to return!  I have a few other little projects to finish off and then I’ll be back to normal blogging. Here is the unedited email.]

  1. Very Interesting stuff, you must be chuffed with what you’ve achieved. I’m a bit surprised that the TMR game isn’t listed as one of your top posts, let’s see if we can rectify that this year, I can’t wait for it to return.

  2. Thanks, glad you like it. I’m pleased people keep coming back and really quite amazed. :) To be honest I don’t really want a game post in the top list, I don’t think they are a proper reflection of the site. Too often last year the site became more about the game than about the blogging and that’s not how I want it to be.
