This website was designed late on Sunday night and finalised on Monday, ready to go live when I finished teaching. In just a little over 48 hours, it had received over 1,000 visits – courtesy largely of Lords of the Blog and Iain Dale’s blog – and is presently achieving daily traffic on a par with that we were achieving on Lords of the Blog. The first post has attracted over 50 comments – okay, several of them by me responding to comments and a discussion between two or three readers, but it’s still good going. The only problem now is trying to ensure that the posts are sufficiently interesting to keep readers logging on regularly. Hmmm….
The justification for the picture, incidentally, is that my office (or rather the office in which my desk is located) is in the very top right-hand corner of the picture. I look out on the statue of Richard I as well as Westminster Abbey. What the picture doesn’t show is that the statue is in the middle of the House of Lords car park.
