Milestone passed - and a big thanks from Doc's 'Art of War'

It slipped by unnoticed a few days ago but Doc's 'Art of War' blog just passed a blogging milestone of sorts.  Since October 2009, some 99 posts later, this blog passed the 40,000 hits mark! Yaaaay!

So as Old Mate Karl says, a big 'thank you' to all of you who have visited this blog and particularly those who have taken the time to make such generous comments on it. 

This blog has been an eclectic mix of militaria from many periods ranging from the Renaissance to WWII and even fantasy including Warhammer and LOTR, both artwork and figures, models and wargaming - with the odd bit of military history thrown in from time to time. It reflects my own reasonably diverse interests and is, of course, entirely self-indulgent!

Needless to say the discovery of blogging has been somewhat of a revelation and has proven to be a tremendous avenue of release for creativity - all constantly inspired by the brilliant efforts of my fellow blogging enthusiasts!

I am constantly amazed at the quality and artistic creativity of my fellow enthusiasts and have learned so much from so many of you - so thanks again to all for supporting my own very modest efforts.

At the end of the day its great therapy.  I've found that later in life, when one does mad things like finishing a university degree near the end of one's career while at the same time juggling work and a large and busy family, to retain sanity  some indulgence is called for.

Blogging Doc's 'Art of War' fits the bill nicely!

Hope you've all enjoyed it as much as I have, I look forward to the next 100 posts/40,000 hits!
