Today I will hit 500,000 views of my blog since I started it at the end of 2008 – about 20 months.

I know numbers mean little and that many of those might have hit the site by accident or dodgy referral, but it still seems rather a lot. I have no idea why people read it and I had no idea when I started that this number might be interested. It is possible that this is not many – I have no idea how many views other comparable blogs get.

But, from this rather bemused bishop, thanks to all readers and commenters. I have learned a massive amount from those who question, comment, criticise and so on.

Thank you.
