Eleven years and around four hundred thousand visits indicates this blog for Keeping Glen of Imaal Terrier people up to date has had quite a good innings. It was never considered way back in February 2008 what a mammoth run it would be. It’s grown from one or two people in the UK looking at it occasionally to the largest Glen reference in the world. The reach of it has been phenomenal. If you are one of the 13 in Azerbaijan who have visited this month, thanks for looking. The single people from India, Brazil, Philippines or Serbia thanks for being interested in a breed that we didn’t even know was present in your country. All good things must come to an end though, there is nothing worse than attempting to keep something going that is past its sell by date, and over the past couple of years or so as numbers visiting have started to decline the blog is bowing its head to the behemoth that is social media.
The blog isn’t disappearing. It’ll remain as the most complete record of a breed for a decade. Everything connected with Glen of Imaals is there in months and months of postings. Brains, beauty, health, events, discussion…it’s all happened. The photographs that have either appeared (or been sent but not quite made it) are on Pinterest so you can wallow in Glendom….and how young we were.
This blog couldn’t have happened without the support of Glen of Imaal Terrier owners and enthusiasts worldwide. Thank you for remembering and for your assistance with everything sent; never knew what those emails with the subject line “is this any use for the blog?” were going to be, it’ll be quiet without them. It’s been a ball everybody, give yourselves a round of applause……..and enjoy occasionally reading the archive of Glen of Imaal Terriers 2008-2019 you might be surprised.
