BRIGG BLOG CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY TODAY


Brigg Blog celebrates its 10th anniversary today.
We have been bringing you community news and views from the historic market town in North Lincolnshire since our first post appeared on October 8, 2007.
Someone kindly commented later that day: "The blog is looking good, Nigel. A more personal view on the news in Brigg is interesting to read."
You can take a trip back down memory lane through this link and read the initial post.
Since then we have added a further 8,200+ posts and generated more than one million page views - a fact highlighted recently in a feature article you may have read in Brigg Matters Magazine.
Thanks for that mention and to Brigg Matters' Ken Harrison for permission to use the above  'in reflective mood' picture he took to illustrate it. The location was near the County Bridge, in case you were wondering.
It's heartening that Brigg Blog has followers across the world - even in Australia and New Zealand.
They are mainly people from this area who have emigrated or gone to work abroad.
Our Blog means they can find out what's happening  in their old town.

But the vast majority of our readers are drawn from Brigg and the surrounding district.
We are not planning to dwell any further on our anniversary but would just like to thank everyone who has contributed  snippets and images over the past 10 years and everyone who has read our content online at any time. 

Your continued support is appreciated.
We may raise a glass or two in celebration of the 10th anniversary later today.
