400 000 visits...

Not to this blog... but that's the number of people who visited Geography Pages during 2012. Geography Pages was set up in 2001 as one of my early websites. It started out on the free Tripod hosting service in 1999-ish, as Mr. P's Geography Pages, then moved to a proper host. The original idea was that at the time, there was something called the Yellow Pages (remember this was in the days when you had to look in a book to find what you wanted...) which was where you went to find a phone number. The plan was that if you wanted a geography resource you went to the Geography Pages. In its time it was a top 5 website for Geography in the UK, getting more visitors than almost all others (apart from that pesky David Rayner's)

If you have a mind, you can check out the original site, which is still around. There's still plenty of interesting stuff there... Everything I've done since could be said to stem from the thousands of hours I put into building the site....

Bear in mind that I haven't updated it since 2008, when I joined the Geographical Association, so there's probably a few dead links there now...


And if anyone wants to buy the domain name, I'm open to offers....
