When I published One liner Wednesday today, I was delighted to receive a notification from WordPress, informing me that it was my 500th post on Diary of an Internet Nobody!
In a little under 4 years, the blog has had 62,700 hits, it’s been visited by 34,000 of you lovely people and has gained 558 of you as followers.
I’m extremely proud of my little corner of the internet and, despite not having had the slightest idea what I was doing when I started my adventure in the blogosphere, I believe that I’ve just about got the hang of it now and I’m enjoying it more every day.
Looking at those numbers, I’m quite frankly astonished that so many of you think my rants, musings, stories and ramblings are worthy of your time, so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for accompanying me on my journey of exploration, discovery and improvisation.
Not only that, but I’m also rather pleased that I’ve managed to stick to my original mission statement; having no discernible theme, producing everything you see on the blog with nothing but a smartphone (and occasionally a tablet) and including as much original content as possible (including, but not limited to; general nonsense, opinion, fiction, photography, video, animation and music).
But that’s not all. Now I have three blogs to keep me busy; Diary of an Internet Nobody, the sci-fi collaboration, Starship Gypsies and my photographic blog, Photo Sans Frontiers, along with the other regular features I participate in, such as the aforementioned One liner Wednesday and Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
Speaking of which; I am about to embark on a new participation feature, namely The A-Z Blogging Challenge, which starts on Friday and continues throughout April. That should be interesting, given that I have nothing prepared for it whatsoever.
So, to celebrate this, my 501st post, here’s the latest musical creation to make it onto my lovely new Bandcamp page; a serene little number that may well be the most melodious attempt to date, which I have called, for no good reason (other than the fact that it’s quite floaty) “Glydr“.

Thanks again for all your support, here’s to the next 500 posts.
