I love getting comments on this blog, but there aren't a huge number... so I began to wonder if anyone else was actually reading it. I just updated my Geocities family site with journal pages for January to March this year (oops! Behind again...) and included some links to this blog. Actually the March page was stolen from parts of the blog..
I realised that I do like checking the stats at my family site, and seeing that every month at least forty or so visitors have a look at what I've written. So I searched for a suitable hit-counter for blogs and discovered BlogPatrol. Very easy indeed - I just registered, copied the code into my blog template (in the 'footer' section) and it all worked.
It was so easy I did the same for my book reviews blog - nobody's commented on any of that, so I've had no idea if anyone's reading it.
