So that's that, then. I'm off now for a while (only a couple of days in fact, but you know how it is) and then I'll be back.
I had meant to do a piece looking back at 2009, at all the awfulness I'd written about, and all the awfulness I'd written, but I didn't quite get there. I might do something like that in January if I have the time, but you can look back at this and this for a bit of reflection over the triumphs and atrocities of 2009.
As I was saying yesterday, this year has been one of quite amazing growth in traffic for the blog thanks in no small part to kind people retweeting and plugging things on Twitter, which I am proud of and a bit scared by - and I'll still keep doing it, for as long as it keeps me happy, and as long as some readers take some enjoyment from it. I'm also proud of the other blog I did in 2009, for as long as I felt it was necessary, and I'm pleased to say I don't think I need to write that one any more - but that was enjoyable, in its own way, and rewarding too.
So that was 2009. I hope the new year brings better things, but we'll see.
In the meantime, thanks for reading.
