Five hundred and counting…

August 6th, 2009

This isn’t that big of a deal, but I just noticed that my last blog posting was my 500th.

Of course, it’s not just the quantity of posts that matters, but also the quality of the posts. And a large part of the value of a blog posting is the feedback given by the audience reading it–that  would be you!

You’re doing a great job! I can’t think of a more passionate group of whisky enthusiasts than you. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

I have lots of stuff in the pipeline, so stay tuned.

    This is definitely one of the few blogs I keep up with on a regular basis. It’s also one of those essential websites I check daily (along with the news and four or five others).

    An excellent read.

    Keeping up with a blog and publishing a magazine is no easy task….plus the fact you have to sample endless drams…

    God Bless John…doing what he likes to do and sharing it with those of us lost in dry corporate environment. Imagine, coming into the office and having to pour one as part of the job…..
