It’s a cool grey Friday morning and I’m at my desk beginning to work through my to do list today – which does include going for a ride (subject to the result of a phone call this morning). I’ve just checked my blog site tools and can see that yesterday Giro di Lento passed 100,000 views. I’m absolutely delighted by this. I started this blog on May 4th last year and as you’d expect pretty much nobody read it. I started counting views in June and you could do that on your fingers and toes – still very few. I started Giro di Lento to write about my riding including the trials and tribulations but I also wanted to write about products I found interesting and to use as a platform to share my thoughts that hopefully people would find interesting. Overtime and particularly the posts I’ve written about certain products (Cervelo, Colnago, Cannondale, Kinesis, Genesis, NeilPryde, Canyon. Shutt VR to mention a few) have been what really started to drive visitors to the site as well as drive me up the Google page rankings on various subjects. I also started writing because I was interested in learning about blogging and I definitely have learnt some basics so far.
