This blog now gets around a thousand hits a month, and I am grateful to all the people who pass through the open gate and explore the Victorian gardens beyond. My stats give me an indication of the countries people come from (most visitors are from the UK, US, Russia, Germany, Australia and Canada); what browser they use (Firefox wins); and what posts were most popular.

I'd like to know more though. So please tell me a bit more about yourself in the comments below. Who are you? Where do you live? Why do you visit? Do you work in a creative industry? Do you like tea? What sports do you enjoy? What would you like to see more, or less, of on this blog? Why don't cats like being laughed at, whereas dogs don't mind? Feel free to link to your website or blog if you want, a free promotion opportunity! In fact, say anything you want, we're all grown ups.

The garden is open for visitors, the chocolate cake has been sliced and served, and mugs of northern tea plonked on a tray. Please help yourself and say hello while you're here.
