Blog Review

After two months of preparing this blog, I thought I would review what has happened since I first started it in early January.

I initially thought that I would exhaust all content by the first fortnight in January - how wrong I was! Encouraged by the success of the X1 Blog and Andy's Bus Blog I have persevered with the project. I may not have posted every day but there has always been something to report on in the Great Yarmouth/East Norfolk area every few days. My thanks to Grahame for keeping me supplied with news and the offer of photographs for which I am extremely grateful.

As for my audience, I had expected most (if not all) of the visitors to be from the UK and I was right in this respect. However, what I had not expected was a worldwide audience - the major number of visitors outside the UK have been from the United States (probably from a former Great Yarmouth resident) and Russia!

Other European pageviews have come from people in Germany, Ireland, Italy and Poland.  Other surprising visits have been from Bangladesh, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Morocco and South Korea. The other side of the world  is not forgotten either as Australians and New Zealanders have also paid visits. Never underestimate the power of the worldwide web!!!

Finally, thank you all for your interest as this encourages me to continue with this project. A photograph of a former Great Yarmouth Corporation Leyland PD2/1 No 66 (EX6566) is offered as reward for your continued interest! One of ten delivered to the town in 1949, she has been preserved at the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville in Lowestoft.
Any comments or reports of  local workings are gratefully received and will be acknowledged on the blog. Photographs are accepted too and will also be credited
Please continue to revisit the blog for the latest pictures and information of  bus activity in the East Norfolk area.
