Life is sometimes done of nice little events, which have nothing special in a normal context but that can take a pretty memorable dimension at a striking moment : Yesterday evening, just a few minutes before the end of the year, T.O.P. has reached its 25 000th views !!!
Of course I take here the opportunity to wish you all a very Happy new year, but before all the crossing of this cap is the occasion to THANK sincerely all of you readers and all the people that have trusted and helped me in one way or another to make TEMPLE OF PERDITION what it is today : a respected blog with a slowly but surely increasing readership.
More precisely, I'd like to thank the followings who have had a special importance in the path of this great adventure : Nathaniel Colas, Lasse Pykkö, Ron Rochondo, Ed Barnard, Karl Simon, David Szulkin, Dean Tavernier and Oli from Church Within.
To confirm in 2012 is the 1st priority, to improve the 2nd (drafting's quality, lay-out, classification of archives...), I've got also new ideas to precise and test... all this combined with some welcome contributions, from very competent and dedicated people, which should start within the next days... This shoudln't change anything at all in the spirit of the blog, but hopefully should bring more variety in the content and more stuff featured !
What did become a kind of trademark of the blog is the particular accent that is placed on INTERVIEWS, I'll try to perpetuate it as much as possible. I've done about 30 interviews in 9 months, it would be cool to have an average of 1 interview per week in 2012 : 50 interviews in a year sounds great !
Now, some more statistics about these 9 months of activity :
