Here at ‘All Things Georgian’ we have topped the 100,000 hits on our blog, so time to celebrate. We have been simply astounded by the level of support from all our readers and for the lovely comments we have received both on the site and on social media. We would like to say a massive ‘Thank You‘ to everyone who has read our blog and a special ‘Thanks’ to those who have helped us to promote it.
When we began writing our blog it was simply designed as somewhere to put information that we weren’t using in our books and thought that some of our discoveries might interest one or two people. For the first few months it ‘ticked along’ with a few hits each month and we were delighted that a few people were interested in our ‘scribblings’. Then, all of a sudden, it took off in a way we could not possibly have imagined. It leapt from a few hits each month to a thousand a month and we are now averaging over 10,000 hits a month. Our total last year was just over 52,000 and so far in the first 4 months of this year we’ve just about reached the same figure. We have also ‘tweaked’ the design of our blog to freshen it up a little, we hope you approve 🙂
As the title of our blog explains we look at all things relating to the Georgian Era and hopefully if you look at our top 10 blogs you will be able to see what an eclectic mix we have. We try to remain true our initial concept that nothing would appear on our blog unless it contained at last one tiny piece of new or little known piece of information, hopefully we have achieved this so far. We would love to be able to publish a blog each day, but as we are also writing a book time doesn’t permit us such luxury if we are to remain true to our concept.
In order to complete our book we have had to make some massive cuts in order to keep it to a reasonable size and so, later this year year, we will begin to share with you those bits that ended up on the cutting room floor, so to speak.
To celebrate we thought we would take a look back at our top 10 blogs.
