Today, No Right Turn turns two. It's been a big year - 61,109 unique visitors, and 1295 posts totalling 247,471 words. By comparison, in 2002 - 2003 I wrote less than half that; we're going beyond the short novel or overlong PhD thesis into serious wordage here.
In the past year I've tried to move towards longer posts, with more research and deeper analysis. I've also been syndicating the best of them through Scoop. This year I'll be continuing that trend. I've also been submitting on legislation and lobbying politicians and encouraging others to do the same, and I may experiment with using the blog as a tool in this area, for example by developing a submission online and getting people to sign up for it. And of course I'll be covering the election, producing a candidate survey, and recommending electorate votes accordingly (assuming anybody answers it).
That's a lot of work, and time constraints over the last few months have meant that I haven't been able to do all that I've wanted, but it looks as if I'll be getting my life back soon, so I'll be able to have another year of happy bloggage.
