Take Five

First post was on the 17.10.2010...Medieval Highwayman whispering sweet nothings


"pssst, he´s still at it"

"if I had a dollar for every......"

Hits/visits/ Page reviews on the blog? As of time of posting, 1,010, 000 +
Sounds a lot but where are they all from? Modellers, wargamers and or bots, Spammers and the rest? Unfortunately the Dashboard cannot tell where all the hits come from.
Is so many hits a sign of success, or that the Google bots function properly and the %!°?/!!*+ Spammers are very active. ?
Shaun  over at his blog Shaun's Wargaming with Miniatures had his 5 year Blog anniversary a couple of days ago and he explains how the stat thing works way better than I can...HERE

Did I expect the blog to "do so well" ? TBH, I didn´t expect a Thing from it. For one, I never expected any followers, so I´ll take the opportunity to thank all those who have added themselves to the followers Gadget thingy.

"There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about"

I never expected any comments, so again, thanks to all those who have put finger(s) to Keyboard  and written....:-D
No thanks  the Spammers though. They are the reason I switched to Moderating the comments, I was finding they had posted thier cr*ppy ads  or in some cases racist/Sexist muck on older Posts thinking no-one would find them...it took me 3 hours to find them all and delete them.

I also didn´t expect to make good contacts and online relationships (oooer missus) with other Bloggers. In particular, One or two of you have convinced me not only to stick with Blogging but more importantly, to Keep up my experimentations with the world of modelling... and experimentations is only what I can describe them as...no Projects ever seem come to full Realisation...one day though..


It´s been fun and informative, the stuff I´ve learned, not only about modelling but history ...it seems the majority of us modelling Bloggers are as much history buffs as painters.
Congratulations to all of you´s who have joined the Blogging world and stuck with it..

Another five years? Who knows? One thing´s for sure..this Blog is here to stay (as Long as the web allows it)

And the title Take Five?...Dave Brubeck ...who else ? :-D
