Yet Another Milestone Reached!

The final stats-related milestone has now been reached, for the time being, as it stands.

I have now clocked up 25,000 visitors.

Now, I’m not exactly one-hundred per cent sure on the difference between a visitor and a view, but looking at these figures I’m told that each visitor on average has viewed something on my blog 6.1 times. They spent thirty-two minutes on average here, quite possibly forgetting to close their browser down when they left their computer / tablet / mobile phone / laptop / watch / 3D Visor / Smart TV / game console / microwave oven or whatever other piece of equipment they used to call by here*. However long they stayed, I’m still happy they called by! Hi, you one in (now over!) 25,000. I felt nervous addressing five-hundred people once, but what’s 25,000 here in Blogland?

Not that I’m stats orientated, no, not me.

My next target is to have had at least one visit from every single country in the world… whether I’ll achieve this or not remains to be seen, but looking at the World Map of All Time, I don’t really have that many countries left to visit:

* This figure is a complete estimate, and – actually it’s complete fiction. How many folk do you know who use their microwave to read the internet?

So, this is the latest Milestone Post, the previous ones being reaching 2,000 posts and then receiving 150,000 views.

Who knows? The next milestone will be when I have coloured in the entire world…

We shall see!

Island of Dreams

The Land of Nod beckoned. Stars shone brightly in an almost clear and endless sky, each one representing someone’s dream; someone’s hope. The island sparkled in the starlight, frozen on the horizon, frozen in time. The Land of Nod. Eternal gateway to the Realm of Dreams, accessed only occasionally by souls travelling as their host bodies slept. Some remember their visits there, trying to revisit as often as they can. Others merely recall snippets… snapshots… fragmented memories and out of order recollections of a magnificent surreal reality. The icy waters lap the shoreline, gently ebbing and flowing, gently passing the time and gently reflecting both the wonder and the fluid nature of the imagination.

Wordle: Great Outdoors

There was a wise grandmother
Who looked at the sky
She could see the week’s weather
Without seeming to try
She knew if a storm was coming
As plants stood firm and braced
And house sparrows flew at speed
When to their eaves they raced
Crooked clouds hung heavy
Tobacco-coloured and dark
She smiled when she noticed
Lightning’s first spark
The outside world fell silent
As thunder rumbled on
And she made herself comfy
In the hole she called home
