10,000 Visitors!

Yeah I know, another one of those posts but it’s always an excuse!

We’re still a few months short of three years since I started this blog. This is where I usually ramble on about not being on social media and tagging things incorrectly (I did more than fifteen. Should’ve read the bloody advice!) for about two years or how I thought I’d be writing about me actually playing (I’ve definitely retired now).

Anyway, 10,000 unique visitors from United Kingdom to USA, Thailand to Trinidad & Tobago, Vietnam to Oman and beyond!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Following On

I thought that I’d provide a little insight into how I acquire a following on my blog…

I’ve written nearly 600 posts now and have a pitiful (No disrespect!) 120 or so followers. My fatal two-year tagging error cost me dearly but I’m writing wrongs this year. My subscriptions go something like this.

580 cricket articles: 85 followers (Including forced family as well as those marketing and utter nonsense followers you get!)

10 book reviews: 15 followers

10 poems: 15 followers

1 blogging tip article: 5 followers

Now those poems and book reviews are cricket themed of course but it’s a little disproportionate for my efforts. Maybe I should stop writing about cricket altogether and just write poetry and book reviews!

For no reason at all, here’s a picture of me (Excuse the tint, we’ve all been through that phase!) winning a cricket trophy. I didn’t bat, bowl or take a catch in the final. I didn’t even stop the ball but did pick it up twice. Still, better than my previous efforts in a final… run out having been sent back (Quite rightly) first ball!
