I've just realised that I missed the one millionth "hit" on The Online Darkroom. Somewhere between packing up the old house and moving to the new house the landmark passed without me noticing. I remember a while back thinking I'd need to make sure to at least mention it in the passing but life, as always, got in the way.
Anyway, we're now around 40,000 hits past the million. It's a fair old number when you think about it although there are some blogs that get that number of visits each month rather than every few years so I'm not getting carried away. Many thanks to all of you who have stuck by me over the four-and-a-bit years that I've been publishing TOD. I suppose just writing the same blog for that length of time is a bit of an achievement as the vast majority flare up and die off in much shorter periods.
I've no plans to stop publishing the blog and will basically carry on in one form or another as long as I have something to say. Someone once asked me why I do it but I can't think of a good explanation beyond "force of habit". I wrote every working day of my life from the age of 18 to 49 so I think it must just be ingrained in me.
