Happy Birthday to me!

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Today sees the 200 Weeks blog reach its fifth birthday.

Yep, FIVE WHOLE YEARS of blogging. While other police blogs have come & gone, 200 Weeks has stayed the course, bringing you insights & opinions on police & policing in the UK & beyond, together with thoughts on matters not necessarily related to policing.

And to top that, in a couple of weeks I’ll have published a blog entry every single day, rain or shine, work or rest day, for THREE YEARS.

1,294 posts have appeared over the past 5 years.

My thanks to all my regular readers, especially the ones who leave comments on my posts. I hope you fancy staying with me over the next year.

    I`ll continue to support 200weeks (and Gadget) in their efforts to restore some common sense to U.K. policing (any kind of sense would be good).

    Thanks for the personal stuff too. It probably doesn`t help you much but I`m sure you help many other people out there just by demonstrating that they aren`t alone in whatever problems they are going through.
