When I wrote my very first blogpost back in June 2005, it was like a field of dreams. Build it and they will come. That sort of thing. And gradually they came and sometimes they went. Forensically it would be interesting to track how my many visitors arrived. Which internet threads guided them here? I am sure it would be just as fascinating and perhaps equally impossible with your blog - if you have one.
Recently, a rather nice Australian lady has drifted into my cyberlife. For her sins, she is an IT teacher in a town called Cairns in north eastern Australia. You can see its location on the map of "down under".
Carol writes a nice and varied blog called "Back to the Chalk Face" and she calls me Sir YP - an appellation which I think other visitors should adopt. It's an open and thoughtful blog which gives you a great insight into her life in that far flung corner of the world. Isn't that just one of the wonderful aspects of blogging? Getting to "visit" people in faraway, exotic places like Cairns, Canton (Georgia), Sloughhouse (California), Luanda (Angola) and err... Wrexham and Trelawnyd (!) North Wales.
As Carol's European agent, I have been given a suitcase filled with Australian dollars to drum up more support for her blog and I can recommend it to you. Why not give her a visit? Go to:-
