A four followed by five zeroes

Sdtrk: ‘My time’ by Ann Steel

I would like to blame Twitter, and the prevailing weather conditions, and preparing for a cluster of iDollator-related interviews for my tardiness. Cos without PB Shelley mentioning a couple of days ago that ‘Shouting etc etc’ was on the verge of hitting the 400,000 hits mark, I honestly wouldn’t have noticed! Well, I’d have noticed later. Thank you sir, and thank you, the viewers / readers / data miners that visit this blog so very, very often! Thanks, visitors! Thisitors.*

Up next: the latest instalment of ‘Any Synthetiks-related news, Davecat?’, some catching up on the ‘This was the Future’ series, and some posts reporting on some things that Sidore and I may or may not be doing in a media-related context. Yes. All this, and so much more!**

Once again, thanks to the lot of you for stopping round! As blessed, temperate Autumn approaches, we should be back to a normal posting schedule! Whatever that may mean, exactly. Nevertheless, happy Friday the 13th!

*with a tip of the hat to Peter Serafinowicz
**the definition of ‘more’ being, of course, entirely relative

    ‘Shouting etc etc’ truly has something for everyone. 🙂

    Ooo… that’s heavy!

    Thanks for the tip o’ the hat, DC! I remember the good ole days when there were only around several thousand amused and/or confused Visitors here, and 5K seemed as if it would be a good target to shoot for. Things have come a long way since then, eh?

    Still a ways to go community-wise, apparently, but it is Good that we “old-timers” have a reliable place (or two) to gather to keep in touch 😉 May you and Sidore-chan have a swift journey to 500K!

    Regards,
    PBS, Lily, and Eden (and Pennie!)

    Ah yes, the Good Olde Dayes, back when the visitor numbers were smaller, and lived near the water. I used to post on a regular, continual basis! I was but a callow youth that knew nothing of the vampiric effects of Twitter. I’ve learned that garlic is entirely ineffective against its attacks, and as a consequence, ‘Shouting etc etc’ has paid the dearest price. But everything smells like garlic now, and that’s not all bad, really.

    Community-wise overall, things need to shape up, I’d say, but you’re right — there are a couple of places we can still go, thankfully. I know of one; it’s a humble little enclave not too far from here, but you’ll find the inhabitants are quite familiar. 😉

    Right! Enough of this weird writing style; you and I have posts to write! Or at least consider writing. Damnit. Anyway, ta very much for the congrats!
