This is Number Three

Today marks three years of existence for this li'l ol' blog o' mine!  Talk about time flying! Hard to believe that much time has passed since I sat down one afternoon and pounded out my first rant, in this case about people who seem unable to grasp that they are the ones slowing traffic at Lancaster's otherwise wonderful Central Market.

In the three years since then, over 10,000 unique visitors have stopped by to spend a little time here.  That amazes me. Not because I think I'm uninteresting, but rather I am amazed by the sheer scope of reach my words have here.  When I was doing my radio show in Richmond, VA, many years back, I don't think I reached 10,000 people!  Certainly I didn't reach folks from so many varied locations.  You've come to my blog from Spain, Japan, New Zealand, the UK, Sweden, Malaysia, Croatia and more other countries than I can list here.  In fact, six of the seven continents have sent readers to this blog (only Antarctica remains - come on, where are my Antarctic readers?!?).

Please know I am grateful for you all, whether you're a regular subscriber here or you just stumbled on the blog by chance and decided to read a post or two.  I am always open to your thoughts and suggestions on how to improve - what would you like to see more of? Less of? Want to suggest a band for an NW4NW post? Interested in writing a guest post?  Let me know!

If you're on Facebook and haven't already "liked" the blog's page, please consider doing so.  On occasion I put bits and pieces up there that don't make the cut for the blog itself.  If you're on Twitter, you can follow the blog's Twitter account, @TWIWGTS.

I'm looking forward to what the next year brings - I hope you are too!  In the meantime, join me in celebrating our Happy Third Anniversary!
