Missed first anniversary!

I've been that busy in the last couple of weeks that I completely failed to pick up on the first anniversary of British GENES, which started on September 13th 2011. In truth, it's only the anniversary of the present incarnation of my blog, which started in late 2006 as Scottish GENES - but even so! Since then, the numbers reading have increased steadily, with last Friday seeing the highest number of daily hits yet on British GENES at 1830. I can't update on whether that has been passed yet, as Feedburner is currently not registering hits for some reason (very temporamental!). Since it started last year, however, the site has had just over 248,000 hits, but that doesn't include the reading habits of almost 600 daily subscribers by email etc, so to be honest I really don't have much of a clue how many read it - suffice to say that the numbers are steadily on the up!

If you would like to obtain a daily feed by email or to be alerted about each post by RSS feed, simply register via the options to the left of this page.

If you've been following the blog, thanks for sticking with it, and please do spread the word - not just to let those know about the service, which is free to access, but also to pass on news of anything happening in your area that you might like to have publicised.

One final appeal - I could really do with some more tip offs on things happening in Wales, it seems an awfully quiet part of the world online!

Onwards and upwards... :)
