The 1000th Blog Post

Iceland crossing - tired, cold, wet

Crikey, this is my 1000th blog post!

I was considering a gushing Oscar speech, but I’m meeting a mate for a training run shortly so instead I’m just going to thank you all foryour support and thank the many, many people who have bought me a ‘virtual coffee’over the last year(scroll down the right hand sidebar…*ahem*).

A quick look at my web stats brings up these posts as the most-popular from the last 1000. You can also see some general Good Stuff under my Best Bits category or the Encouragement page.I hope you enjoy these: I don’t think I’m going to be writing another 1000! Cheers.

The simplest way to follow my blog is through the newsletter which contains all the best bits. Just sign up below…

    Thank you so much for taking the things I love (ie adventures, photography, inspiring writing) to the very highest level. Your site is so much better than so many famous adventurers. I wish you all the best for the next 1000…

  4. Congratulations and well done!

  5. Thanks for the inspiration Alastair – for both the travel stories and for the behind the scenes and practical stuff. A rare and enjoyable insight.

  6. Good work, Certainly hope that you have at least 1000 more posts to come!

    I’m intrigued to know why you say you don’t think you will write another 1000 blogs. Maybe blog #1001 should be how to write an inspirational blog…you definetly have the pedigree! Congratulations!

  8. Coffee on its way (or a PayPal donation anyway!)
