Happy Birthday, Bloggywog!


Yes, Floppybootstomp Compress is now nearing its first birthday. It has been an interesting experience getting the whole thing up and running. At all times I’ve tried to ensure the content was original, well thought out and gave the reader some sort of reward for stopping by.

Central to my mission was to not give a damn about what was popular or likely to get me noticed. Apparently if you mention sex, lesbians, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga or Perez Hilton your hit rate soars, but frankly, I’m not after that here. This blog is about a few things, none of which, I imagine, will be of general interest. The first of these is stuff I like. That’s why I write about music and comic books. Obscure music and comic books. After all, who needs yet another blog about Lady Gaga or Michael Jackson? The other strand to this blog is writing and writers; the many great wordsmiths I’ve met what they are doing and how I struggle to keep my own scribbling up to scratch. So there’s a lot of variety here (which is why I have my Floppyboots compressed in the first place). Sometimes I’ve struggled for ideas or a decent grammatical sentence, but overall I’m happy with the result so far. And just for the curious, here’s a few stats:

 In one year Floppybootstomp Compress has accumulated:

44 posts

7000 hits (over 500 a month)

60+ comments

Most popular posts:

  1. Top 100 60s songs, the return.
  2. War of the World-Builders
  3. Comic-Book Classics 2: Sambre


The actual date of this anniversary is the 19th of October. On the day I will put up a story on the blog. Not a flash-fiction, but a full 1300 word story for my readers to share. I wish I had cake, but stories are better for your waistline.

Oh, and thanks for stopping by, amigos.

  1. Happy B’day, Mr FBSC!!! (Look, I used more than one exclamation mark–that’s how happy I am. I promise I never will again.)

  2. Well done you…I hope there will be many more blog posts to come.
