Now we are six
Now that October's here it means I have well and truly failed to mark I like's 6th birthday which was sometime in September. Every year I promise myself a bit of a sabbatical, changing tack for a while to talk more about why I do it, what I've learnt, where I think it's going. All a bit more meaty than the seaside and bubble cars. But then I think a lot of you are probably here for the seaside and bubble cars, not to hear my inner thoughts and there's the eternal conundrum. I worry so much about becoming this awful self-obsessed braying creature, the sort of hideous caricature than hangs over most self-respecting blogger, that I don't write any of it.
What I've done this year at least is rewrite the about page and hope it gives a bit more detail without making me sound like an arse. If you want to know all the details about how I like started they're there. And I've cleaned up the archives, so if you're coming here for the first time, or you come here often and have forgotten the best bits, here's a list of everything there's ever been.
And the main thing I want to do, like every birthday is say thank you. Thank you for being here and reading this. It's going to sound cheesy but I like has been a fantastic source of serendipity and pleasure over the past 6 years. When I started it I expected nothing so to have people, smart people at that, visiting, commenting and generally enjoying themselves rocks my world. A lot of people still think blogs are a bit risky, but in six years I've never had a cross word. What a way to keep your faith in human nature intact. So thank you all and here's to many more (and thanks to Ben for the photo).
