MacNumpty is 3

Yesterday, it transpires, was the third anniversary of this blog, which I opened with a post on the Thatcher legacy, and another on a row between Jack McConnell and the Home Office.

It's been some three years for my subject matter: the Dunfermline By-Election, which humiliated Labour; the Moray By-Election, which started the SNP ball rolling all the way to Bute House; the Election itself, of course; the establishment of the SNP Government; Gordon Brown's ascent to the Premiership; Labour's leadership travails at Holyrood; the Election that wasn't; the Glasgow East By-Election; and more recently, Glenrothes.

And it's been some three years for the blog (and the blogger): things started with the newly-installed Tory Leader of South Ayrshire Council contacting me regarding the change of Leadership there; being interviewed on Radio Scotland as the voice of Scottish bloggery; getting the chance to help out at the Scottish Roundup; getting involved with the ill-fated Terrywatch; and now having a monthly contribution in the Welsh publication Barn - I'll be producing the original versions of the articles at some point.

So all in all, it's been fun. Year 4 is shaping up to be a good one as well...

Congratulations on the application and fortitude to make it to three years. I was going to have a party when my own nascent blog made it to three WEEKS, but I'm not sure if it'll make it yet ;-)
