Blogging Milestone!

It almost slipped under my radar - checking the blog this evening I just happened to notice that this afternoon the blog had its 10,000th hit (a visitor from New Zealand!)

I started blogging in earnest on Oct 31 2009 and got my 10,000th hit (page view) on April 30 2010 - almost exactly six months later.  I know there are some sites that get 10,000 hits a day but I never imagined my obscure little blog would get that many in that time frame - now averaging 30 visitors a day.


And humbling - so a big thank you to all of you out there who have visited and especially those who have become followers and/or left comment.  Interacting with fellow enthusiasts all over the world has been a  great pleasure and in visiting other similar blogs, has provided tremendous inspiration.

So huzzah! and a big THANK YOU to all from 'Doc'

A big 'Hats off' to everyone from my Front Rank Bagration 


  1. Huzzah!
    Here's to another 60-odd posts *clink*

  2. Gratters Doc, Well done,


  3. Thanks guys - mucho appreciated. I've had over 200 hits in the 24 hours since the 10,000 came up - another record I think - the previous 24 hour highest being 52 back sometime in March. That and a feakin' awesome Deep Purple concert tonight (Ian and the boys pumpin' out 'Smoke On The Water', 'Space Truckin'' etc etc) - it doesn't get much better'n that!


  4. Congratulations! I always look forward to your updates. Great-looking Russians by the way! Dean

  5. Well ya'know, if you weren't so damn good at painting, we wouldn't come here. Well done!

  6. If it wasn't such a cracking blog we would not keep coming back Sir! I look forward to the next posts, you have set the standard, now you have to deliver-no pressure!
