The Sweet Smell Of Success

There is nothing like ending the year on a high, and as highs go this one is positively Alpine. Earlier today I checked out the News From Nowhere Blog on the Technorati website and discovered, to my surprise, that this humble little undertaking which is scarcely over a year old is the four million, four hundred and forty six thousand, and nine hundred and seventy-sixth most popular blog in the world.

Now a result like this cannot be achieved without the help and support of a lot of people and I would like to stress my thanks for the support I have received from JGC, EO, and the semi-mythical DPH. The honour of achieving such a ranking is not mine alone, I see it as a recognition of their sterling work. However, we cannot rest on our laurels : we did not get where we are today by sitting back with a complacent grin on our faces. In 2008 we shall do bigger and better things. And I confidently predict that we shall rise even higher in those technorati rankings. To help us achieve this ambition you will note that I have included a handy little thingy at the side of the blog which technorati members can press and make us a favourite. Become part of a winning team : vote for NFN now.
