We Fly Spitfires Turns Three Today
Today is the 25th December. It marks the birth of Jesus, the coming of Santa Claus, the constitution of the Chinese Republic, and general festivities and merriment all round. It also marks the day that this blog was created. Yes, whilst everyone else across the Western world was opening presents, tucking into turkey and trying to avoid family arguments, I was busy huffing and puffing, giving birth to the blogging monstrosity known as We Fly Spitfires (you can thank me for the mental image later).
It’s honestly quite hard for me to believe that this little bloggy wog is now a staggering three years old. Little did I imagine that when I first started writing way back in 2008 that I’d still be going strong entering 2012. Indeed, it’s incredibly humbling to think that people out there actually take some perverse pleasure in reading what I write (assuming you’re not all masochists, of course) and that over the years I’ve managed to clock up hundreds of posts, over ten thousand comments and several hundreds of thousands of visits. It’s all rather incredible and unbelievable really.
Of course, as regular readers will know, this year has been very busy for me. In addition to starting up my own company, a web agency called Primate, I’ve been regularly contributing to its web orientated blog, meaning, all-in-all, I’ve had a lot less spare time than ever before for my hobbies and pastimes. Still, life is all about keeping busy and, regardless of whether or not I post once a day or once a week, I truly love contemplating the MMO industry and writing up my thoughts and observations on it. Plus, ironically enough, the less I seem to write, the more popular this blog becomes. Perhaps it’s natures way of telling me to keep my trap shut.
Anyway, it just remains for me thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your readership, support, comments and feedback. You’ve kept me going through thick and thin and I can honestly say that reading your comments and hearing your own opinions gives me great, great pleasure. I’m honoured to be part of such a wonderful community.
Merry Christmas one and all.
