Welcome readers to 2013.
2012 was a great first year for the Blakwatch.
At our conception in January we had 81 views. By July it had reached 1500 a month, and by December we had reached over 3000 hits.
Thanks to all those who supported, either by subscribing, or re-tweeting, or commenting, or a combination of all three.
I hope with your help to make 2013 even better for the Blakwatch. This year I would like to include other voices and opinions by featuring guest bloggers, and also make connections with other like-minded blog sites both in the UK and the states. (I myself have already had one of my posts re-posted on the site ‘Black Presence in the Uk’. Check out their site if you’re interested in Black British history.)
This should hopefully give me more time to bring a book out this year (watch this space for details).
So if you’re a like-minded reader of this blog, and you’d like to move from being a reader to a writer, contact me, either here or via twitter (@leepinkerton) and lets make moves.
All the best for 2013
