Yes, it’s exactly one year since I fired up WordPress for the first time and began A Taste of Garlic!
Since then I have reviewed hundreds of sites, have answered thousands of emails, have learned more than I ever thought possible about that strange breed of bloggers who have left their native homes to move to France and, above all, I’ve had a really great time and made a whole load of new friends.
The site has become far more popular than I ever thought it would and that’s all down to you – yes you!
Without all the visitors, who keep coming back day after day, I’m not so sure that I’d have kept at it…
I know that statistics aren’t really the point but, with 661326 pages views from 212107 unique visitors I guess that Garlic is the sort of place that people like to pop into from time to time!
And that’s why, on the first birthday of A Taste of Garlic, I’d like to say a nice big thank you to each and every one of you.
So, wherever you are and whoever you are (I still only met a very few of you), please feel proud of what you’ve helped create.
You should all pat yourselves on the back.
And me, well I’m going to have a celebratory glass of wine (or three!)
Care to join me?
All the best
