Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month Thanet blog chart

Once again my rough and ready Thanet blog chart this is the number of visitors that come to this blog by clicking on the link on another blog. 1,024 238 225 221 122 114 100 83 79 64 42 31 24 24 / referral 22 17 16 10

The odd one out here is that doesn’t have a link leading here, so it doesn’t figure in the list, as far as I understand my weblogs this is unique individual visitors.

I will add bits of my normal Sunday rant to this post as the day progresses.

The picture is looking over the cliff, the shipyard is where the pavilion is now somewhat unfortunately situated, the circular thing bottom left is the railway turntable at the end of the station and line.

The blog here that really surprises me is as far as I know there are very few links leading to it.

It has been a week of blogs closed for business with ECR going off to twitter at and Dave Green in a state of suspended animation at

There is a joke doing the bookselling rounds at the moment and here is as good a place as any; recruitment notice in a newsagents: 'Paper persons required'. Presumably if you are flesh & blood one cannot apply?

The picture below shows the designated smoking area at Westwood Cross, complete with plastic trees and heaters, I do like to see something done in the best possible taste.My main computer has just gone completely dead which means I am seriously restricted in what I can access in terms of info, so I am wrapping this up now, as the monks sometimes wrote at the bottom of medieval manuscripts; nunc scripsi totum pro Christo da mihi potum.

Sorry this post is a bit pedestrian even now trying to get children to bed and make computers work properly, anyway you may appreciate the vid


  1. HMMMMMMMMMMM only 24 from me sorry will try harder Don

  2. just daWned on me whY ECR has so many they are flocking to you to get away from him LOL

  3. Apologies Michael
    the link from ThanetLife was going to an older page of yours. This is now corrected.

  4. Don I don’t know what to make of it but I think you try pretty hard and your pictures are amazing.

    Hey Simon what about grabbing the feeds gadget from blogger and sticking it on your sidebar, the search engines love it, the old static links mean instead of the sites that are alive coming to the top they are lost among the deadwood.

  5. I think these figures need to be taken with a pinch of something, for instance I increased my blog posts from about 10 in january to about 30 in february.

    Unfortunately I've more time than I'd like recently, as a result I've myself probably clicked on your site directly from mine a lot more in the past, that said I've tripled my output which has given me an increase of about a third in I'm not sure what your figures mean particularly when you deduct my 90 additional clicks onto your site .

    Blogging seems a lot more volatile with everyone having a sidebar thingy, Ive noticed that as soon as you drop from the last five post visits fall off bigtime

  6. Tony you can click away all you like and it won’t make any difference as this records unique individual visitors.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
