This blog had 8,151 viewers in the last month - a really large increase on the month before.
I had to screengrab this image in the morning before I'd officially passed the 8,000 mark but it illustrates the real growth this month. Several thousand more.
Thanks for continuing to come back for more, and do keep the local stories coming in.
It's not bad for something I started on a whim after this incident when I called an ambulance for a homeless man who we’d left lying on our streets all night one cold November morning just over a year ago. At the time I thought the Bush was missing a real news & views service and sadly that holds true still, although this blog will only ever be my own personal musings.
The strength of the blog though, and probably why it gets so many readers now, is you. Most of the stories that get posted here are sent by readers, including those who actually risk consequences by passing me information that some people would rather you didn’t know. Anonymity is always respected.
This month alone I have seen at least three stories posted on this blog picked up by the local printed press or referred to on other discussion boards - keep them coming and thanks again. Chris.
