Now we are five

Here starts Year Six of the Poor Mouth having lasted about four years and 10 months more than I expected when I put up my first post back in April 2006 when the world was young and digital watches were still a good idea.

After over nearly 4100 posts, over 1,015,000 visits and nearly 43,000 comments, the drivel still keeps on coming

I am grateful to everyone who continues to visit, everyone who has linked to the Poor Mouth and to everyone who has left comments over the years. Without you the Poor Mouth is nothing.

I will take a break shortly, After five years of relentless rubbish I deserve a little rest. But fear not it is more than likely that I will be putting up my sixth blogoversary post this time next year.

Enjoy your break. I hope it brings you neuronal refreshment and perhaps fruitful new directions to follow on your stumbling wander through this odd thing they call life. It has been a pleasure to peruse your varied offerings and wonderful images as I have stumbled onwards myself.

Dear Jams,

I'll miss your posts dreadfully. Your blog not only feeds my brains, keeps me up-to-date and delights my eyes, it also brightens my days. Your laughter is unique and irresistible. Your compassion, for the world in pain, is deep and contagious. It's an honour and a joy to know you. Have a good rest. You earned it!

All the best. Always!

Hey, man - congrats on both numbers. I am going to report on my million too.

But what about reversing the colors? Somehow the funereal atmosphere doesn't suit your blog. OK, I shall check the earlier posts, maybe it's explained somewhere...

jams o donnell said...

Than ks mon ami. I decided to change the look to bring it into line with with m website. Black does show my photos far better than blue/green

SnoopyTheGoon said...

I guessed it today, before getting into your place! Indeed, I agree re the photos being best presented on a black background. Reading, however, is a different matter.

jams o donnell said...

I'd rather not white on black but hopefully the contrast will be okay for most
