15,000 And Counting...

I'm happy to say that since my first post in March 2011, The Squeaky Pen has tallied more than 15,000 page views, which puts the blog somewhere between "Up and Coming" and "Loyal Following." Not only is TSP being read in the U.S.A., but in countries around the world, including (starting with the most readers): Russia, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Latvia, Iran, France, and Canada. Other notable reader locations are Singapore, Poland, Sweden, South Korea, Chile, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, Colombia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Turkey, Thailand, Egypt, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Italy, Malaysia, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Maldives, Mexico, Slovenia, South Africa, Vietnam, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. To my regular readers, a big thank you! 

The Squeaky Pen is going on vacation (only a week) to rest, relax, and regroup for the new year. When  I return, TSP will have a different look (not unlike rearranging the furniture, it's time for a change), so don't think you're in the wrong place when you check back in. My next column will be posted on Tuesday, January 3.

Happy New Year to all my Squeaky Pen readers around the world. See you in 2012!

The Day's are Getting Longer said...

Well, this is disappointing news, but I have a suggestion which might help relieve the withdrawal agonies of at least one reader. The blue flame which appears at the bottom of my screen and burns up into the text of your posts has been offending my admittedly delicate sensibilities. It's distracting. Now that you have a big new flat screen for your fireplace, I'm hoping you will take care of this one last fire issue. Congratulations on the yeoman's job you've done so far....can't wait for the new look.....and more Squeaking!!

Yes, it's time for a new look at The Squeaky Pen. Now that days are indeed getting longer I'll change from candles to a view somewhat more "daytime." A new look for a new year and all that. Of course Harry's photos will still be featured. Thanks for your loyal readership!
