An Evolving Exploration into the Head, Heart and Hands of Energy Descent

Transition Culture has moved

I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

Transition Culture Reaches a Milestone.

btI know this might not be something that excites many of you out there, but **Transition Culture** just passed a major landmark which I would like to share with you. Since the site began last November, the traffic has steadily increased, but for the last couple of months it has bobbled around under the 1000 visitors a day level, rather like the price of petrol in the UK, which has stuck below the psychological £1 a litre level for the last few months, at 99.99 pence, only now to start breaking through. Yesterday, however, we had 1075 visitors, a record for the site, and the first time we have broken the 1000 visitors a day barrier.

This feels like some kind of a minor triumph (despite there being something hugely anally retentive about stats watching) and it is great to have reached it before our first birthday. Thanks for visiting folks, and for helping to make this site what it is. Hopefully in the same way that the rising price of petrol is actually a good thing in that it focuses the mind and stimulates creative thinking, the same thing could be said of **Transition Culture**’s stats! May they both continue to ascend, intertwined, in glorious syncronicity, for many years to come.

First place I go every day when I log on – and like Nicholas I was suffering ‘withdrawal symptoms’ when you were on hols! Your site was a big help to me for a recent OU course too (all properly referenced naturally).

Go raibh mile maith agat.
