I started this blog on the 7th of January 2010, posting about the eavesdropping episode of 6th January 2010.
As I’ve said many times – I only started the blog to have somewhere to put my witterings about Ambridge. Most of my friends don’t eavesdrop, and my wife certainly doesn’t. I had no idea about blogging, and no expectation.
How amazed was I that folks actually started commenting on the blog!
The visits to the blog shot up in their hundreds almost overnight (now at thousands every day). My Twitter profile (@thearchersfan) starting getting followers. The official BBC website pages about The Archers link to my blog. And I’ve even been interviewed by the press (even from outside of the UK).
Though I am sometimes late with my posts due to life outside of Ambridge interrupting, I always catch up eventually. Life just isn’t in sync if I have Pondered the Archers.
It’s really because a way of life for me now. As self-employed, it’s one of the few parts of my life which is purely a hobby. No fee applies.
A huge thanks to you for reading the blog, and I look forward to celebrating the 5th … 10th … 20th … 40th … anniversary of the Pondering the Archers blog.
