30 000 Hits!!!!

Thirty thousand hits ladies and gentlemen!

That averages out at 370 per day since we started on 1st June.

I'd love to think everyone just visits for my journalistic skills and Andy's technical prowess, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's something to do with that Rachel girl.

Thank you to everyone who has visited the site, from our mysterious reader in Basildon who spends more time here than me or Andy, to our friends as far afield as Hong Kong, Indonesia and New Zealand!

We've come a long long way in such a short time -- and you know what -- we haven't even started yet!

September is set to be the big big Rachel month -- The Proms, Hyde Park and oh yes opening night!!!

The blog is going to go stratospheric!

Andy has been working his magic again -- I'm sure you'll have noticed that you're now welcomed to the blog by Rachel singing 'Cabaret' -- what could be better? You can also listen to 'Oh What A Night' on Team Tucker and 'About You Now' whilst browsing the gallery.

Not only that, but Team Tucker now has a chat feature too!

Rosie and I are currently addicted to 'Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around'. This beautiful song showcases Rachel's vocal in a very different way to the IDA performances and if you haven't heard it yet, check out the audio section at the bottom of the page.

Great timing David.

Knowing you I expect you stayed up all night waiting for that 30,000th hit LOL.

David said...

LOL Andy yes I had everyone in our street huddled round the PC waiting for the big moment!

Seriously though it says a huge amount about how incredibly popular Rachel is. Her career and fanbase are set to go from strength to strength.

Hi Georgia
Yes it is true! You can check out Rachel's new Facebook group for all forthcoming events. That currently includes the Belfast Proms, the Hyde Park event and Rachel's opening night in WWRY.
Enjoy the ALW event and don't forget to tell us about it when you come back!

WOW!! 30,000 hits-simply amazing, and as I've said before, it's a testament to how brilliant this blog is (thanks again to the bloggers) and obviously to how truly scrumptious our Rachel is!

As for the mysterious Basildon reader, might I propose Denise van Outen?? I'm sure she's an Essex girl :)

Rosie said...

Wow David, I'm touched by the personal mention! And really really really cannot stop listening to Rachel singing that - its beautiful!
