1 year of blogging

Today is the first day in the second year of The Forge, the birthday of my blog if you will. That went pretty fast! I had no idea how much interest it would gather, and I've been pretty surprised with the amount of people who think it's worthwhile to have a look at the stuff I make. More than 18000 views of people from 65 different countries around the world - I had no idea that anyone in Tanzania knew abut the Mechanicus.....
Thanks to all the people - you guys - who come around, and makes this a funny way to spend some time. Also a great thanks to all the blog-connections, without which I think most blogs would take years to get an audience - I know for sure mine really kicked off when got connected with Faeit 212, BoLS and Tale of Painters. Amazing to see how info can "spiderweb" around the world in no time. Here is also to hoping Nafka will get Faeit212 up and running again and the rumours of the blog's demise is just an overreaction.

Cheers and happy hobbying
