Our lack of a website prompted me back in May 2010 to develop this blog.
I do not regret not having a website as I feel there is far more information on this blog about who we are and what we do than a website could offer, which is static. I am sure that marketeers would wholeheartedly disagree with me, but I enjoy posting on the blog and receiving messages about it and it seems to be a dynamic and growing beast.
We have made friends through it, made cheesey contacts, received orders through it and hopefully in some cases helped budding cheese makers. I would like to think that it shows that we are an open and honest bunch (all three and a half of us!) who are happy to share information and tell the world what we are up to.
I am amazed at how many hits we get – now over 100 a day – and how much interest and in one or two cases, controversy it has created.
Thank you to everyone who reads our blog or who has signed up to it – we currently have 37 blog followers who receive copies of each blog post, it is very humbling.
Finally, if you wondered what the most popular posts are, here they are again. What is interesting is that the post about phage has leapt up to 11th place, despite it only being posted just over 3 months ago; or could it be something to do with being an alien landing craft….
