Great summary, Deb, and useful stats as well for you going forward. Congratulations also on doing so well – a lot of blogs don’t get much attention but this is brilliant.


Thanks Leigh, I had absolutely no idea that anyone was even reading it. It’s very exciting, now I just need to get my butt in gear and start getting some products out there to back it up. It’s such a lonely and self-depricating business this writing – you never know if you’re doing anything right or worthwhile. But I have very supportive people keeping me on track. And these stats definitely help. 🙂
