I couldn’t let the milestone pass without comment now could I!

As of the past weekend there’s now been more half a million views of the blog since I launched it back in 2009, in which time I have published 465 posts, which have received around 3,000 comments and attracted more than 1,000 followers.

Commercial matters have meant that I’ve needed to keep a lower than customary (for me) profile of late however I hope to ramp up the content and interactivity in the very near future.

It’s an exciting time for the Portal and I’m looking forward to getting into lively debates about the our new direction and all the good stuff it will bring.

Thanks for reading.

    I do think it has been a very good blog, Chris. I am sure it has helped improve the service by galvanising users into getting engaged. The Portal has been a great improvement on the old paper and post system. It could be further improved yet and your ongoing blog (plus suitable funding, no doubt) will surely help that come to pass.

    This “ramp” you mention, Chris….please ensure it achieves a 1:12 gradient please…..!!

      don’t forget the handrails either…………!
      Great job, it’s good to know there is a real person (and team) behind the portal
