"I understand that your time is precious and that there are many millions of websites out there in internet land. You have just spent time on one of those many millions. I genuinely thank you for visiting and here's why.
Over the last 10 years or so daily newspapers have seen their readership halve, the way in which we get information has changed dramatically. 10 years ago we began to look for the information that we sought on the internet. Now, with so many different media outlets and social media sites pitching for us to visit them, that information is still there but the shift has changed.
With the advent of "likes", "shares", "mentions" & "re-tweets" we are being pushed more and more to look at sites that others tell us to look at.
My website isn't a small fish in a big pond; it's a tiddler in an ocean.
If you have liked this website then I ask something simple of you please. Share those good thoughts in an email to a pal, a mention on one of your social media sites or a link somewhere. I will probably never know that you've done so, but I thank you for doing it.
Once again, many thanks for visiting my website and, at the very least, I hope it made you smile at least once.
p.s. if you visit my blog you'll get the same thanks."
