Celebration Day


So recently I missed the 1 year anniversary of my installation of Google Analytics onto this blog, and all the fun and analysis that might have entailed.

Instead, as of yesterday (Sunday) I am delighted to say that I have broken through the barrier of 1,000 monthly hits! I wonder how many of the several thousand Warwick blogs have ever managed the feat?

Mind you, I’m taking this success with a pinch of salt. I imagine in a standard month I wont have a sharp peak of interest – such as my Times National Sudoku Championship report – and nor will I have a more sustained interest in my blog, due to my authorship of an international LMI puzzle contest. But still I’m quite pleased. I didn’t think this would happen for quite a while yet!

So, if you have only recently found my blog, then welcome aboard – I hope you stick around. Be sure to check back every Friday for plenty of puzzling fun! And for those of you who are sudoku fans, keep your eyes peeled in coming weeks for the UKPA Sudoku Championship coming on the weekend of 6-7th November.


Welcome to the blog of current UKPA sudoku champion, two-time Times national sudoku champion and general logic puzzle fan Tom Collyer.

Home of the original Friday Puzzles, each Friday I publish a 100% original and handmade logic puzzle, inspired by the world-famous Nikoli company.
