I just realised last night that I started this blog 10 years ago! Where did the time go?
I first posted on September 23, 2008. Obviously not many people were paying attention at the time but traffic did grow and in the peak years between 2011 and 2014 the site was getting between 10,000 and 15,000 page views per month. In recent years I have posted less frequently and visits have fallen off. Nevertheless, the site has recorded over 600,000 visits since I started to keep records in June 2010. Over a quarter of a million come from the US and 222,000 from the UK. The rest are made up from Germany, Russia (surprisingly), France, Australia and Canada, and other countries.
I have been using Blogger to host the site for a decade now, but I plan to migrate it shortly to its own site which will carry other features about Wolverton’s history.
