Against all expectations, this humble blog of mine is five years old. In actual fact the fifth anniversary of its creation was back in March but today marks the date it was officially launched and the first post added to it, which is why I am taking that as the date of birth for MIB’s Instant Headache.
So, how to mark this momentous occasion? Some people make a big fuss and post something special but I honestly couldn’t think of such a thing, largely as this is primarily a review site and extraneous posts are at a minimum.
I’ve posted numerous facts about myself in response to the many blog awards I am humbled to have received so a revelatory post of that nature is negated. Having recently reached the 100,000 site hits tally I have already thanked you, the loyal and cherished reader, for supporting my blog in a gushing post so again that is off the agenda.
Really all that is there left to do is to be a bit boring and share some numbers with you, breaking down some of the various statistics of how my blog has performed over the past five years. The totals listed here are correct at the time of posting and include this very post in the final analysis.

Considering I had little hope for my site when I started it I am but surprised and happy with those numbers. Now, if only I could somehow transform those views into page likes and discussion… 😉
Anyway, that is the story so far. Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who has paid this site a visit and to those of you who regularly return to read my ramblings. Without you there wouldn’t be a site as nobody likes writing for an audience of zero. Also special thanks to Fetch Publicity, MVM and Manga Entertainment for keeping me supplied with review discs.
Now, I wonder if we can survive to a tenth anniversary? 🙂
