I recently published the 100th post on this blog and, I must admit, it crept up on me. It doesn’t feel as though much time has passed since I published the very first post, but that was all the way back in February 2016. Much like the riotous vegetation that crowds the canal towpath on my cycle route to work at this time of year, the blog has grown with considerable vigour. It’s blossomed into something I’m proud of.
Behind the ongoing success of the New Phyt blog are the many, many people who have contributed to it. Whether in the form of guest posts, or responses to my requests for information for the Behind the Cover series, the blog wouldn’t be possible without these contributions. Thank you to everyone who got in touch with information, commented on my drafts, and wrote posts!
I don’t feel like I can let this opportunity pass by without weeding out some personal highlights. With so many great contributions to choose from, selecting these posts was a difficult task, but here are some of my favourite stories (I’m sorry if yours isn’t in this list):
There is plenty to look forward to in the next 100 posts on the New Phyt blog and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. If you would like to contribute, please get in touch with me – I’m always on the look-out for guest posts!
Thanks for reading, and here’s to the next 100 posts.
