Can you believe it? 8 million pageviews!

While I was out sketching in Cambridge on Sunday, somebody took a look at a page on Making A Mark and notched up the 8,000,000th page view - according to Blogger!

Magdalen Bridge and Scudamores, Cambridge

I got a non-stop commentary from the Punter Guides of the history of Magdalene College as they went past below!
Isn't it absolutely amazing that one woman's interest in art and willingness to share can turn into an art blog which gets visited by people from all over the world (see below)?

I have to say I still can't quite get over the fact that when I go to sketchcrawls and exhibitions I meet lots of people who all know who I am even though I've never ever met any of them before.

I'd love to say "Thanks!" to the person who viewed that 8 millionth page - but all I know is that you live in one of the places listed below!

Instead I'll say "Thank you" to you all - and I do hope you come back again and look at some more! My archives are extensive! :)

Congratulations and well deserved Katherine. I love your blog, so much great info. Interesting to see where your reach is too! Penny German

I too can well believe your 8,000,000 views, Katherine. They are testimony to your generous spirit and willingness to gracefully offer more and more. Through service without thought of yourself, you have always offered information unconditionally. Its a splendid achievement, and you are most certainly ahead of the game - as your other commentators have remarked its very well deserved indeed.

Katherine, the thanks need to go to you. I'm a very late "beginner artist", having "failed" art at school, after teaching which I can now see was only geared to those who the teachers thought had innate talent.

I love your blog and what it introduces me to: the artists; the explanations of technique; the thought provoking discussions. I hope you continue to enjoy writing it as much as your readers enjoy reading it.
