Blog Followers of the Year!

So as of today I’ve been blogging successfully for a year, in this time I’ve talked about a whole bunch of books, movies, video games and whatever else interested me. Rather than look back over the last year, I thought I would take a moment and look over the wonderful people who have agreed to publicly follow my blog – so here we go:

The Old School followers (being my friends who have been following my blog since post #1) Mike the Bold and Trish Van Doornum – These two lovely folks are actually a married couple, two of my best friends and a significant reason behind my decision to blog in the first place: Mike because he had the stones to start blogging years ago and Trish because her blog allowed me to see how she was doing while she visited London a few years back.

The Book Clubbers (being the folks who started following my blog after we joined the same book club) Kim Stoltz and The Doc – having met both of these guys through a book club started by my BFF Mike, they’ve helped me discover both my current favourite comic (The Unwritten) and comedic series (The Jeeves and Wooster series), as well has having some fun blogs of their own.

The Folks I’ve never met (Being the wonderful people who follow my blog based entirely on whatever I’m wrting about, rather than me constantly asking if they’ve seen my latest post) Amalia Voicu, Busco un agente literario en Espanol (and yes I know it’s basically a spam follower – but how many spam followers do you have?), G. Benedicto, Coffee Time Romance and More, Peter Williamson, AC Tanner, and Marsha Blackburn – Some of these folks have commented on posts, others have just given public support in being followers of the site, each one of them have helped to encourage me to keep posting. And Finally

The Blogger from around the World (being the only follower I have who commented within my first half dozen posts and happens to live in Malaysia) Kah Woei Tan, who has her own blog (which you should totally check out), and also shows me with each of her comments exactly how awesome blogging is, because I can’t think of another way I would have made such a cool person.

For those of you who don’t follow my blog, but have been reading it regularly, even commenting on it – Thanks! A special shout out goes to Fate at The Fickle Hand of Fate who has returned to her blog after a summer away and was definitely missed.

Seriously you guys, thank you, You folks rock! Also, my wife and kids definitely need a huge thanks for putting up with my blogging habit.
