We have just reached 100 followers! We are so excited that we have to send a little post to celebrate. We have been having a party up here in Gelli, oh my gosh, it’s madness! First Nina actually drew out 100 stick men to represent all of you so you could be here with us,
then we had a little dance, yes Nina does slap me in the face for no apparent reason…
THEN, we remembered we needed ginger cake and custard to do this properly. We had a tin of custard hiding on the shelves (who doesn’t) but no ginger cake. The nearest shop is down the mountain and 5 miles along the road, so Nina put her genius baking skills to good use and made one, out of stuff around the house. She cooked it on a gas hob in a pan, and it was delicious I am not lying!
The stats page on our blog tells us that people from 41 different countries have stopped by to see us. The main mass of our views coming from the UK (3,378), then the USA (211), and Germany (55).
Our most popular post so far is First to Last with 444 viewers, everyone obviously loved hearing about Nina beating Russell in a race. Karma car is the least popular with only 43. OK, point taken, us running out of petrol was not the most exciting story in the world, but there is a lovely gallery at the end!
The top google search that led to our blog was ‘gelli power’, but further down the list there were some more interesting ones…
‘cottage in Snowdonia wanted running water, electricity’
this is totally not the place for you. You are a bit demanding aren’t you!
‘who was in power in 1899?’
No idea. Margaret Thatcher?
‘lift wanted to Snowdon’
Sure! the more the merrier. You’re not an Axe-murderer are you?
‘gelli ice cream’
We know a great place, Nina works there. Best flavour is ‘Sticky Toffee’, stay away from the ‘Blue Bubblegum’ it’s nasty
‘best shoes to wear for Snowdon Race?’
Hmmm, we would go with Inov-8 Talons, good luck by the way!
It’s been almost 5 months and 20 posts and we are still enjoying it immensely. A massive thankyou to all of you cool cats who clicked ‘get Gellipower on a regular’, you make it all feel easy!
