Happy 10,000 to Outer Space Gamelan
Recently this blog hit 10,000 individual site hits. Despite the fact that most of them are probably just me, it still swells my cockles with pride at the notion that something I started (for a lark!) is now viewed and visited daily or otherwise by people from the world. I'm well aware that there are plenty of other zines and blogs who do 10,000 hits in a given hour, but nevertheless I think it's pretty good for something I started with almost zero promotion or advertising. I just started writing about music every day because it was something to do and it snowballed from there. So if you would please oblige me a few lines, I'd just like to say a big thanks to anybody who reads the site, who has it bookmarked, who has it linked on their page, who left a comment (positive or negative - OK just the positive ones), who passed on information, who dropped me an email, who took the time to send me a sampling of your wares in the mail and especially anybody and everybody who ever stopped to pay a compliment or a word of encouragement - it's greatly appreciated. If you'll excuse me I think the band is playing me off. I'll have to save this in a .txt file somewhere for when I get to 20,000. Anyway thanks again and see you tomorrow I suppose.
