250th PatchPierre Post

Whooohooo...
Okay, it might seem a bit unnecessary to write a celebratory blogpost every 50th post, but it does feel like another milestone again.

I am happy to say the blog is still going strong after a relatively bad year for me personally, and glad that working on new blog-posts kept/keeps me distracted from all the negativity surrounding that.
Thank you so much again for all the support and the positive feedback.

I would like to share a few PatchPierre numbers with you about the PatchPierre universe:

- PatchPierre blog will reach the 75.000 pageviews this month, in a little over 2½ year.
- an average of around 5.000 pageviews per month lately, and this number is still climbing.
- Almost 1.100 people follow PatchPierre on Twitter

- Patchpierre.Net welcomed visitors from 126 countries

Finding new topics is getting harder as i have already reviewed most of the Doepfer modules i own, but i hope i can keep the blog interesting enough in the future with a wider range of eurorack related posts.

Thanks again for the support, regular posting returns this thursday with the start of a completely new Doepfer tutorial video series by Raul Pena!
