weddings and anniversaries

Just a quick note to say there will be no posting at Woolly Days until Tuesday as I am off today for a whistle-stop visit to Fiji for friends' wedding.

By pure co-incidence, this is the 1000th post on Woolly Days. The site began in October 2005 as an experiment in uncoordinated ramblings (and extraordinarily bad poetry) but after a few months it settled down into articles about issues, places and people that I was interested in. As such, it has become a vitally important daily outlet for me for several reasons: to learn about things, to vent about them, and to share what I found out.

Almost a million words later, I hope Woolly Days is now approaching something like journalism that people might be interested in reading. I am also eternally grateful for all the people across the world I have met (both in real life and virtually) through my writing.

Thanks to all my readers for dropping by and here's to the next thousand posts.

I think any thanks should be directed your way Derek. Thanks for an enjoyable (and often insightful) daily read.

Derek, I've recently found out about your blog — while blogging about Earth Hour myself — and have been enjoying reading it since.

I'm trying do to something similar with my blog, can I pick your brain when you have some time? maybe you can email me and we take it from there...

in the meantime enjoy Fiji!
