Five Easy Sandwiches


Ok, I think this blog could do with a bump in readership. Now food, recipes and kitty cats improve the stats but I don't like cats ( what? you had no idea?

It’s mine!


BottledWorder is at it again - digging deep into the blogging experience and into the mind of the bloggist. http://bottledworder.com/2013/05/07/electronic-writing-and-the-numbers-game/ I did try the cute kitten trick and it definitely brought an uptick in traffic, so clearly the people have spoken!
