As 2012 draws to an end we would like to wish all of the readers who visit the site a very Happy and we hope, A Prosperous New Year.
Our news site has done well and attracted a host of new readers.
In our first year (2009) we managed just 198 posts rising to 235 a year later. Last year we posted 488 stories and this year that number has reached 600 which many of you are kind enough to tell us you find interesting.
Last year we topped out at over 111,000 visitors which is not bad for a specialist topic blog site but in the space of a year that number has almost reached 350,000 and we thank you all for visiting.
Please continue to do so, tell your friends where we are and do not forget to comment.
Feel free to tell us which stories you find most interesting and which ones bore you. That way we can better tailor the content to suit your requirements.
