Milestone : 50,000+ views


On June 1st I got a little over excited (see here) but gee whizz it was an amazing feeling to know that the blog had been viewed twenty thousand times.

Surreally enough, just over six months later and www.thegmanworld.com is celebrating 50,000 views since June 2010 which is the month all the statty stuff raised its little poindexter head in the first place.

So what has happened in the past six months? Well...quite a lot actually. Bear with me as I rudely break the conversation and inappropriately wander off down nostalgia avenue. If you would like to follow why not take a looksy at some shenanigans on the blog from the past six months below :
