Merry Christmas…and all that jazz

Hello everyone. This is just a quick post to thank any and all readers of, and subscribers to, this little blog. If you’ve read, enjoyed, commented (I love comments), retweeted on Twitter, and generally said anything lovely about what’s written here, then I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support.

There have been many times over the past few months, when visits to the blog have been dispiritingly low and comments have been few, that I’ve dabbled with the idea of deleting everything and running off crying into the night. But where would be the fun in that?

Anyway, to quickly recap on this busy year: I came sixth in a photography competition, got engaged to my girlfriend, raised a little bit of money for prostate cancer, wrote a piece for Company magazine, and occasionally found time to write the odd bit of rubbish on here for you all to read.

So I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year!

Oh, and as it’s Christmas, please do take the time to say hello in the comments section. Whether I know you in real life, chat to you on Twitter, or don’t know you from Adam, it’d be really great, just this once, to hear from anyone who visits this blog from time to time. Even better, you might feel so fucking Christmassy that you decide to subscribe, meaning that you get notified of updates by e-mail! (That was seamless, wasn’t it?)

And yes, when the comments section remains empty, I’m aware of how much of a twat I’m going to look. But that’s me: I’m a risk taker!

(Oh god. What have I done?)

      A belated Merry Christmas to you too! I hope you’ve had a good one.

      I’m eternally grateful for the times you’ve retweeted my blog posts on Twitter and said such lovely, spirit-raising things about them. If this blog had an executive lounge, I’d give you lifetime membership.

      Wishing you a happy, healthy, successful and tea-snorting 2011! x

    Merry new year and belated Christmas Mr Toots! I’m still relatively new to reading your blog and here me be my first comment. Cor. I like reading Mr Toots’s ramblement though. Tis most satisfying.

    PS: there. I said Something Nice and it weren’t spam.
    PPS: I’ve a job lot of herbal Viagra in my shed, it’s marked “Macedonia only” but I’m sure it’s ok. Discount for cash…

    • andytoots

      Happy New Year! Chuffed to know you like the blog. (But for god’s sake, don’t touch that Macedonian herbal Viagra. It’s a fine line between raging hard-on and raging fever.)
