Christmas wishes

Well I didn’t get my pony but I hope everyone’s Christmas was as enjoyable as mine.

I’m just finishing some peanut butter on toast, by my reckoning the first non turkey- or ham-based meal I’ve had in five days. I’m hoping that it won’t trigger some sort of auto immune rejection reaction.

Things are likely to be pretty quiet here on The Standard for the next week or so, though I suspect people will be posting from time to time. I thought now might be a good time to thank you all for your support over the last few months.

Our first post was on August the 15th 2007. It’s been exciting for all of us to watch the rather humbling growth of this blog from tens to hundreds to thousands of daily visitors – of whom you’re probably one. It’s all of you that help to make this site a success – so thanks.

A particular thank you to all those who participate in the comments section – you’ve helped to build a community, and one that we’re going to be doing our best to help you grow even further in the new year. We’ve got new hardware sorted to cope with the site’s steadily increasing traffic and we’re kicking around a few other ideas we’ll hope you’ll like – more on this as it develops.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and thanks again from all of us here at The Standard.

    Merry Christmas Base. I wondered how long it would take for you to check on your baby? I’ve tryed to fill the void…just a little! Your hard work has been a great contributor to the worthwhile debate this year. I look forward to 2008.

    Yeah thanks guys, it’s been great having a bit of balance in the blogosphere since you guys came along. All the best for election year – we’ll need it.

    Let us hope that you can move on from being nothing more than a grubby John Key smear site. After all, a he’s guttersnipe kid who made good – you lot are all for working class heroes aren’t you ?

    A bit of balance, Daveo?

    Look down the right hand side of the page, how many Left blogs do you see?
