June was a busy blogging month, and that was reflected in the numbers. We recorded our third-busiest month on almost five years of blogging. Only the pre-and-peri-election months of October and November last year had more visitors. Here are the numbers:
So thanks to all who have stopped by for a look, or who have taken the time to leave a comment. But after much consideration, we've decided that anonymous comments will no longer be accepted.
If you can't be bothered spending a moment setting up a Blogger ID we, and those who have followed us since our early days can't be bothered having threads clogged up with endless streams of anonymous inanities. And while we're at it, we're going to start deleting off-topic comments, or those which attack us or other commenters.
The standard of debate here has deteriorated, and our patience has proved to have limited. Disagree with our opinions by all means, but focus on the message rather than the messenger. If that causes visitor numbers to drop, so be it.
And just a heads-up; the next six weeks is going to be pretty busy for us. We're going to be on the road for much of that time, and we also have some significant business deadlines to meet, so that's where our focus will be directed. We'll still be blogging, but probably with not the same level of frequency as we have in recent months.
