Yet another milestone!

I have just realised that the average number of daily 'hits' my blog has had since I added the 'hit' counter back on 11th February, 2009, has just reached two hundred!

The last two months have seen a big surge in interest in my blog, with well over three hundred 'hits' per day being the norm. The surge seems to have started at roughly the same time that I began to write blog entries about the development of the portable wargame. This may be a coincidence, but I somehow think that the two things are not unrelated.

I have also just noticed that the 'hit' counter indicates that the total number of 'hits' my blog has had is about to reach 150,000. As I wrote in a blog entry only last month:
'I never, ever expected that anything like that number of people would be interested in 'the random thoughts of an ancient wargamer', but obviously I was wrong.'

'Big thanks go to all my regular blog readers. I'll keep writing my blog if you'll keep reading it!'
That still holds true today ... and I hope that it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.


  1. We 'ancient' wargamers just wont lie down and go away. Keep up the good work.

  2. Congratulation! And people like me who read your blog via a rss reader are probably not counted among those 200.

  3. Johntheone,

    And may that remain true for a long time to come!

    Thanks for your kind comment.

    All the best,


  4. Benoit,

    Many thanks for your congratulations.

    I am not sure if people who follow my blog via an RSS reader are counted in (I suspect that they are not!), but I am pleased to find that so many do find my ramblings of some interest.

    All the best,
