This humble blog has just seen over twenty thousand visitors, (20,o14 in fact, at this time of writing,) which is not bad going since we only started blogging around mid April this year.
Our humble blog has, so far, been visited by sixty countries, excluding our own, from all over the world, (where else would they be? :))
Who would have thought a humble blog like ours, talking about tobacco, it’s users and illiberal bansterbators with their junk science backed up by fake charities, would have attracted such attention?
Of course this is no time for the authors of this (did I mention humble?) blog to be slapping ourselves on the back, we should be slapping you readers and commentators on the back with a heartfelt “thank you!”
And of course it is not forgotten that you all put us on the blogging map by voting for us.
