In this brief post, 31st January 2012, (where did 2011 go?) I am adding blog statistics which may be of interest to contributors.
To date, if this page is included, 344 pages have been posted comprising 1,259 photographs (more if you split the montages) from 34 contributors. As you can see from the counter, the blog has received over 45,000 hits since inception in January 2010.
The top nine countries for hits, in numerical order, after the UK, are the following - USA; Germany; Russia; France; Switzerland; Holland; Australia; Canada and Japan.
Discounting an early 'Help' post, the most popular post to date is 'Hogwarts Express' of 22nd May 2010, not surprising really considering the huge number of Google hits for Harry Potter related subjects. Second is 'Winwick Hospital Branch Line' of 28th April 2010 and the third most popular post is 'Northern Belle' of 28th May 2011.
I hope these stats make all contributors feel proud of their achievements, but there is room for more contributors. If you have an interest in our Winwick 'patch' (see blog pics for coverage), with pictures or information, please let me know at the email address at the top of the blog.
There is still time to send in your votes for '2011 Pic of the Year'. I am accepting votes from contributors and readers/viewers until 24.00 hrs today so please vote, if you haven't already done so. Details in the 2nd January post.
