I'd been advised to do this from the outset, but I was a little wary until I'd tested the waters here. If I wrote, would people read? After all, any blog's success is a tale of two halves - the writer and the reader. It's been a week now and I know that you're out there.
You might not be commenting very much (and that's fine!), but 1,113 of you have popped in to read my blog entries. Thank you very much for that. You've made a lonely writer very proud!
This morning, I put my money where my mouth is. I've bought www.beautiful-britain.com (co.uk was already taken) for the next ten years. Let the journey begin!
