Day 360. Thank-you

In August 2013 on August 6, 2013 at 10:00 pm



Ok, so I’m into the 360s now and it’s pretty exciting.

As I approach the finishing line, I’d love to send a huge shout-out to all of you who’ve come together and formed this blog’s two audiences: the WordPress supporters and the Facebook friends.

It’s been so interesting to keep an eye on what has tickled the fancies of readers. Over the course of a year of blogging, the two audiences have maintained slightly differing interests (see prior discussion of this point at Day 100. A tale of two audiences).

Facebook friends found the posts by following the page itself (261 likes to date), through me sharing posts via my personal Facebook account, and click throughs of ‘friends-of-friends’ and other contacts.

Thank you all once again, and I look forward to holding your attention into the next year of ScienceforLife.365
