It’s been just over 6 months since I posted my first tentative post on this blog, and the time has flown by!

Things have come along a lot since then - the site looks nothing like it did then as I started off with a totally different theme before ending up with this current Connections one. And even this theme has been pretty heavily modified since I downloaded it, with things changing on a pretty constant basis.

I’ve not always had the time to posts as much as I would have liked to, and hopefully that will change in the coming weeks and months.

Posting here has taught me a lot about lots of things, but I’ve still a lot to learn. By using the WordPress platform it means I can keep things pretty simple and I haven’t had to learn much about HTML and PHP and all that kind of thing although perhaps it is coming to the time when I should be looking into this .

Over the past 6 months I’ve kept a fairly close watch on my stats, though it is incredibly frustrating that there doesn’t appear to be any universal way of counting visitors and pageviews as every stats site I visit gives different results!  I try not to take too much notice of these though as it can become a bit addictive - although I’ve recently taken more notice of Google PageRanks and Alexa rank so I’ll have to find out a bit more about them and how to improve them for this site.

Other than that, I’m hoping the next 6 months will be as enjoyable as the first 6 - if they are then I’ll be happy!

That just leaves me the opportunity to thank all the people who have taken any notice of my site over it’s first 6 months, most of all those who have been kind enough to take the time to leave comments - thank you!  :D
