Happy birthday 'blog!

Our blog is one year old today!

Yes its a year since we "broke the mold" and pioneered a whole new way of communicating between players, coaches and managers.

There hasn't been a huge rush to follow - which still surprises me a bit - There have been a few other clubs to follow our lead - but only thus far US teams, so far as I can judge. Everyone at Letchworth takes it for granted now that the information you need will always be only a mouseclick away - that ain't always the case elsewhere, you know!

But there has been a growing tidalwave of readers. By the end of today we will have had over 11,400 hits from around the world - which isn't bad, and this month looks like being the busiest ever possibly breaking 2,000 hits for the first time.

Its brought loads of complements, including from "real" writers and professional publishers (though none have yet backed it up by opening cheque books!) and the odd moment of complaint (unfortunate and something that I try to avid, but then I also want to make this informal, fun, interesting and readable - and people can sometimes read into things all sorts of sentiments that just aren't there). But overall its been a great addition to this club, and - it would seem - an unintended wider audience too.

Its also great to see that it has encouraged Nikki and Anna to launch their own sites for the U17 and U14 teams. Maybe when you go off and start playing for college, university or adult teams you can start your own blogs there too!

Anyway - have a slice of (virtual) cake! And here's to another year (and hopefully not such a "lonely" one. Come on non-Letchworth readers - start your own blog!!)
