So The Dabbler has made it through another 366 days, with at least one and often two original posts on the vast majority of them. We’ll never be the most popular UK culture blog (we leave it to our rivals, naming no names like, say, Sabotage Times, to chase after worthless hits with such things as The 5 Reasons to Look at Pippa Middleton’s Bottom while supporting Manchester United) but we have some 25,000 per month of the best readers.  And we’re not finished yet.

Heartfelt and genuine thanks to our readers, treasured commenters (many of whom have become real-life friends), League of Dabblers members and of course contributors – with particular thanks to our stalwart columnists Susan, Jonathon, Frank and Mahlerman, who between them have notched up, well, a hell of a lot of posts.

Plenty more to come in 2013, stay tuned and Happy New Year to you all.

    No intention to sabotage… but has anyone else noticed the resemblance between Janus’s right head profile and that of Z-list celeb cage fighter Alex Reid? Plastic surgery permitting, surely they must be related?

    Happy New Year x
