The Tap Celebrates 250,000 Downloads In A Year

I switched to the new version of Blogger in June 2010, since when it faithfully counted my traffic.  It is almost a year to the day, and tomorrow the magic figure of 250,000 downloads will be attained.  The last part of the 250,000 has arrived much more quickly than the first, with only 10,000 chalked up in the first month.  Now, a year later, the tally is usually over 30,000 a month.

Much of the interest has come from stories seeded to me both in the comments, and by email, and I am most grateful to the regular commenters for supplying daily good leads and suggestions.  This blog is becoming the work of an informal team of contributors, who I have never met, but who share my concerns with events and the fact that so few people have any idea what is really happening in the world, and why.

Let’s hope the next twelve months brings as many fascinating contributions as the last.  ‘The Tap’ is better named than I imagined (originally it was just an abbreviation for Tapestry, my internet name).  I turned on the flow when I started this blog in 2006, and it just keeps getting more powerful, as more people join in – Derek, Stuart, Me, Steve, Twig to mention just five that come instantly to mind.  It seems I really did turn on The Tap.

It is still a hobby, and having a life will always come first in priority above blogging.   Each day, though, brings enough interest to keep going.  After five years non-stop, the habit is too well established.  Keep calling in, and keep commenting.

If we get good material the audience is there to grow to double and more.

Thanks for calling in.

    When you find all around you ridiculing your thoughts – you keep quiet.

    When you find someone who listens and considers, you delve deeper for more, and seek to distribute more.

    Thanks, and lets keep the channels open. Well done.

    Question everything, hate nothing, love goodness.
