A milestone missed! Thanks to all our readers, and contributors!

Last Sunday while I wasn't looking, page views on this blog passed 400,000.  

As the 300,000 milestone was passed on 19 March, that's another 25,000 per month since then, or something in the order of 800 per day.

It is most gratifying to know that we have so many readers, looking not only at the (almost) daily news postings, but commenting, reading and answering others comments, and contributing news that we might otherwise miss.  The finds that you report from around the country are very useful to other collectors, and dealers, and we thank you, very much!  Thanks also to a couple of 'proof-readers': I'm doing my best to make you redundant (and just caught another typo!).

Keep watching, and onwards to half-a-million!


  1. 400,001. Ian, you are a credit to the philatelic community, often providing information and details that are difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere. If only Royal Mail knew how frustrating they are with so little correct info put out! Well done.

  2. Your blog is brialliant - as is your website. I am amazed how badly the Royal Mail handles providing information. Especially your website's postmark part is superb, as I don't know if there's any other online source for them. And living outside the UK, printed information doesn't always reach me on time.
