A nice round number and a surprise, because it is one hundred days since Fine Spangled Sort went ‘live’.
According to the site statistics, I have written 25 articles that are read between 50 and 100 times a day on average, peaking at over 300 (of course, that could be one person visiting 300+ times). Not a bad start.
So what’s ahead? Essentially more of the same, although I dare say there will be periodic variations to reflect the breeding and show seasons. I also hope to expand the range of topics. I have plans to introduce a ‘good practice’ series, and hope to expand the Bird’s Eye View (although that depends on what others write and say); I will also write on more speculative and controversial topics from time to time.
I hope it is evident that I want to share what I have learned not only from experience and study, but also by listening to others. It can only help the conservation of the Lizard canary, and the development of the new London Fancy, if people understand what has made them so special. If you would like me to write on a particular subject (I already have two topics under preparation) please ask.
Finally, I would like to point out that I have other demands on my time. A rate of almost two articles a week is quite demanding, but it has given the Fine Spangled Sort a good foundation. Looking ahead, a rate of one article a week seems both more realistic and sustainable, so when (rather than if) things slow down I hope you will understand. Many people already use the ‘subscribe’ box in the sidebar to alert them to new articles as they are published. It will become more useful in the future.
