Happy 2000th post everyone. I’ve brought you all your favourite present – statistics!
Our first 1000 posts took nine months, the latest 1000 took six.
We’ve had 67,000 comments all up, 41,000 since we hit 1000 posts, and 10,000 in the last month.
It wouldn’t happen without all of you commentators (well, most of you commentators) and all the other readers. You and your contributions are the real lifeblood of this blog. Without youse, it would just be us screaming into the dark, unanswering ether (as it happens, Tane has a recurring nightmare a bit like that).
Big ups to all the other blogs who link to us – even those of you who don’t say very nice things about us, at least you’re showing that we matter to you.
Cheers also to the journos who know that when we criticise the media it’s nothing personal. It would be nice if you would stop calling us Labour-affiliated though.
Biggest plaudit goes to Lynn. Without his techs-pertise this thing wouldn’t have got off the ground in the first place and would have fallen apart long ago.
As for the next 1000 posts, we’ve got plenty more ideas about how to make The Standard bigger, brighter, and betterer. So stay tuned.
PS. I left your real present under your chair, have a look-see.
[Tane: I’ve fixed some of your typos Steve, long may it continue.]
