It's now been two years since The Hand Mirror launched publicly, on 18th March 2008.
This will be our 1826th post. I lost count of the number of comments a long time ago, but I can tell you that we recently cracked 400,000 hits on the trusty Statcounter.
Thanks so much to everyone who helps to make The Hand Mirror work; writers, readers, guest posters, those who give us valuable link oxygen from their own spaces, and the people well behind the scenes who support me and the other bloggers to keep doing what we do. If you've ever taken part in one of the collective actions we've promoted, or sent us a URL for an interesting article, or joined our Facebook group, or come to a Hand Mixer,* or read a post, or argued with a mate about something we've raised, you've helped, and you are part of this, so thank you so much.
* Next Auckland brunch version is Saturday 27th March at The Library Cafe in Onehunga :-)
