100 Visitors to the swamp.




I know that to most of the blogeratti 100 visits to your site aren’t actually that many at all. However I must admit a slight sense of satisfaction at this most minor of mile stones. As I may have commented before the idea originally was just to obtain an onscreen identity so I could leave the odd comment on issues raised on other blogs. It was never really the intention to try and publish anything on a regular basis and it certainly wasn’t expected that anyone would read it.

The thing that is really nice is the fact that real bloggers have actually linked to this site (The Thunder Dragon, The Final Redoubt, The Croydonian, Theo Spark and The Daily Referendum in particular). These guys are the real deal and have an understanding of the matters in hand and eloquence that one can aspire to but know that one probably won’t achieve.

The other thing that vexes me is that I haven’t quite worked out the ‘Grendel’ angle yet. Should I go predominantly on Sauron / Nude Labia Bashing, the hack and slash on my local NHS (for whom I work) or the family / football bit. Jack of all trades etc. Perhaps I will have worked that out by the time I get to add a further ‘0’ to the visitor numbers. Any advice from my more experienced colleagues would be gratefully received.

In the meantime thanks for coming to the swamp… Take care.

Real blogger - moi?

The Final Redoubt??? You've had more visits ...I should be thanking you for the link!

"These guys are the real deal and have an understanding of the matters in hand and eloquence that one can aspire to but know that one probably won’t achieve."
That's one of the nicest compliments ...I hope it's true?

I think you're doing just fine Grendel. Occasional is OK. Some of us have got too much to say anyway ...it makes a nice change.

Congratulations on your 100th.

You seem to be doing fine to me! It took me a good while to get into blogging, but now I feel remiss if I haven't blogged at least once [and probably twice] a day!

To;

Harry – the comments were in all sincerity

Guthrum – Indeed Sutton Who 

Thunder Dragon – Thank you, I’m not sure there is enough going on in the swamp to warrant two posts per day, but the addiction is creeping I can tell!

All you have got to do is look at the news and the muse descends like a stooping spitfire… and you think can anyone else see the emperor’s new clothes are the tiniest bit transparent in places?

You are doing ok.
