'Not PC' is one year old today

Oh, I've just noticed that this blog is one year old today. For one year now I've been putting togther my thoughts every day, and many of you have been tuning in every day to get annoyed by them -- for which I'd like to thank each and every one of you. This time last year I was pontificating to a friend about how easyit looked to run a blog, about how much I could say, and about all the readers I could reach ... if only I had a blog. If only.

My friend called my bluff. He emailed me and told me he'd already set up a blog for me (thank you, Richard) and I could now either put up or shut up. Shit or get off the pot. I did shit myself, but I began blogging nonetheless with this post on what the Herald knows about rights. And this is what the first week of my new blog looked like.

I like to think that nothing has changed here since, except for 'Not PC' getting better by the day. Hopefully the 157,183 visitors since this time last year agree. I've enjoyed it. I hope you have too. Thanks for coming, every one of you -- it would have been awfully lonely here without you. :-)

First week of Not PC



  1. 157,000 vistors in one year? That's bloody impressive for a blogspot hosted blog. Well done, and thats from someone who bowed out of blogging at 202,000 visitors in 18 months!

    Happy Blogday!

  3. Happy Birthday, PC!
    Love the art pics!

  4. Well done sir, you've done a fine job, and one to aspire to. You've put libertarian and objectivist ideas forward in an easy to digest, polite and considered manner.

    Now it is time for all those who give a damn to cough up a bit on paypal.

  5. Happy birthday, Peter's blog!

  6. Happy birthday! I look forward to the next year

  7. Thanks for your kind thoughts everyone. I'd like to thank [long 'thank you' speech deleted due to space reasons, Ed.]

  8. Yes, well done PC. I don't have time or inclination to read many blogs, especially those that are so far from my own political views, but you blog passionately on a range of topics that are of great interest to me, and although I seldom agree, I am always stoked at the patience and politeness with which you respond to posts.

    That's one of the reasons I keep coming back - there is true debate with a minimum of pointless shit-slinging. Well stewarded! Lets have more...
