For the techies amongst you this means I am moving from WordPress to Blogger – the main reason is that for a long time I have not carried any adverts on this site. In the early days, when there were a handful of people reading it, there wouldn’t have been much point anyway. But for the last year thousands of people every month have been, I publish my stats at the end of every month. Last month there were 11,009 views for example.
And many of you, including one reader who left a comment on the last stats post, have said that for all the work that this blog takes – and it is a lot, from the little hobby it was originally thought of back in 2008, I should see if I can earn something in return. Even then I was reluctant – and in any case WordPress don’t allow it! Imagine my surprise then this morning to log on to this site to see adverts that had been put there by WordPress themselves! They are now apparently going to put ads on here anyway to earn money for themselves – so I’m moving to blogspot where at least I’ll be able to have some control over the ads that you see. Most of them will be for local businesses to W12 and H&F. And yes, earn a little bit back myself!
So bookmark the new address – the content will be exactly the same and even better still. We’ve got a really exciting year ahead, starting with the general and local elections, the summer of festivals in W12 and around and more besides. To those of you who’ve been long time readers (and in many cases sources of stories) thank-you. To newish readers I hope you like what you see.
And see you at the new place!
