A Quarter Of A Million Hits!

Udderly Fantastic

Back in February 2016, I wrote a Bonus Posting entitled 100,000 Thank Yous! in recognition of the fact that our blog hit counter had passed the 100,000 mark.

Well, when I checked on Tuesday 31st January 2017, this number had risen to a massive 251,251. Neil and I would like to thank each and every one of our readers for helping us get past the quarter million mark and we hope you enjoy reading the weekly blog as much as we enjoy writing it.

The figures were definitely swelled by the week of Helen Titchener’s trial, when we had daily postings, rather than just one for the week. The same week also attracted a lot of comments from readers and I must say that we love to hear from you. There is no doubt that most of the comments over the past year have been about the Rob/Helen situation (we even had one saying that Bruce and Ursula are nice people, to which my advice is seek help now) and it would appear that some of you are not convinced by Rob’s sudden disappearance. Me neither.

So, keep your comments coming and encourage your friends and family to read the blog. As I wrote back in February, the increase in hits has been achieved solely by word of mouth and recommendation, so to notch up over 250,000 hits is a real achievement and we thank you all for your loyalty as regular readers as well as your feedback.

We hope that you continue to enjoy reading our summaries, and here’s to the next 250,000 hits!


  1. Keep up the good work, but why not lay off the sainted Lynda Snell or a while? The good lady is a force of nature and definitely good for the community.

  2. Many congratulations for hitting the big 250! Hope you keep going and eventually get to 7 figures. I'm sure I'm one of very many who love reading your acerbic musings on events in Ambridge...even though we are mostly too damn lazy to comment!
    Surely now it's coming to the end of the Pip/Toby thing. Might there be some form of Tobes offspring in sunny Brighton? What a ghastly thought.
    And surely Lilian is on dodgy ground with Justin now she's blabbed to Helen about the real reason for Rob leaving.

  3. Well, we didn't have to wait long to find out about Rob. I'm not going to spoil the suspense for those people who only listen to the Omnibus broadcast, but I'll urge them not to miss this week's episode.

    You can call me a cynic, but I find Toby's explanation totally unconvincing. I think it is too much of a coincidence that whenever Pip hints at their being a couple, he runs away to Brighton... On the other hand, I remember him telling Rex that 'Pip comes with a farm attached', which would suggest that commitment is precisely what he is after.

    All good fun, and congratulations, Neil and Peter, on having acquired such a faithful following for your blog. It's good to see your hard work being appreciated and long may it continue for the enjoyment of us, your readers. Zoe

  4. May I add my congratulations too. I wouldn't be without my weekly Archers' supplement - definitely a healthy boost. Especially so, when all was doom and gloom during the Rob-abusing-Helen years.
    Thank you.
