100,000 ... and counting

Sometime late this evening - or possibly early tomorrow morning -  small celebration is maybe due as this little news service, supporting a small girls team in north Hertfordshire, will pass 100,000 hits - achieved in just under four years. Remarkably the number of daily hits is still growing - even on relatively quiet days it can pass 100 (at the time of writing there are only 41 hits to go to the 100k). And we are - according to Wikio - the number one rugby blog again (which I find hard to believe, actually) - probably a short term thing due to coverage of Emily Valentine, but also due to Invicta, which has generated a lot of traffic!

Quite a lot of the hits have been due to this being - for a long time - pretty much the only independent source of information on women's rugby, including international rugby so one good development is that we are no longer alone. At least two "proper" news services, devoted to the women's game, have now started up (Scrumqueens and women's section of Heavensgame) who are now almost invariably beating this blog to the stories (as they should!). Its great, long overdue, and with the World Cup hopefully just the start.

  • For the record the 100,000th reader logged in at 21 minutes after midnight, and appears to live in Brazil...

  1. Katie Alcock - Ex-Legend!12:51 AM

    Haven't we come such a long way from those five girls who first turned up for training one cold Sunday morning in March 2004 - so glad to have been part of it and so proud to call myself an ex-legend.
