I’ve missed you

For most of the last week, you have not been able to access my web site or weblogs and I’ve not been able to share with you information and thoughts. Other than when I’ve been on holiday (when even I forget the Net), this is the first time in three years of blogging almost daily that this has happened and, believe me, I found it a strange and disorienting experience.
I really get a buzz from knowing that every day I can share my thinking with thousands of people around the world. It’s encouraging to see the traffic statistics clicking away and great when readers post comments or even e-mail me. I’ve missed you and it’s wonderful to be back.

    Hi Roger,
    Good to see you back (we’ve missed you too!), and that you’re still enjoying blogging.
    A shame the URL has changed of course, as it can take ages for new URL’s to be picked up by search engines, as well as less-regular readers. Do you have plans to get that pointing to your new location?
    Hope it’s the end of your technical hassles!

    Sadly, Richard, I’m expecting my traffic to fall back substantially, but hopefully we’ll soon have a redirection arrangement in place.

    Glad you are back, but hate the change of format and print size and type. Maybe I need new glasses.

    I haven’t ever left you a message before but I just had to tell you I missed you and I’m glad you are back.

  • Roger Darlington

    Thank you so much, Cheryl.

    Like the change of type and format. Do not need new glasses now.
