Tim and Alison were keen to mark this momentous event in some way, although I have convinced them that perhaps a short blog post would be more appropriate than their original plan of introducing a £500 a year membership fee to allow readers to continue to benefit from their pearls of genius-like wisdom and wit.
At this point, this dog will conveniently gloss over the fact that the list they came top of was compiled by a PR agency, the purpose of which no doubt is to help suppliers of diabetes tat to identify which bloggers to harass first. The agency claim they looked at the quality of ShootUp’s posts, not just the volumes, so for the sake of our co-writers egos this dog will choose to believe them!
In a rarer, more modest moment, Tim and Alison did both mention that they would like to thank all their readers who while away their hours on ShootUp, reading the rubbish the pair of them regularly spout. And a really big thank you to those who stop this being a one way street and who take the time to share the wisdom of their insulin soaked brain cells through the comments and forums.
Please join us in celebrating ShootUp’s number 1 spot before this dog starts weeping, Oscar style.
