The Big 100




Yep, Porky's Expanse! now has a wonderfully round number of intrepid explorers!

It feels warm and fuzzy. Thanks very much to everyone, whether you read, follow or comment - it's a cliche, but it really does inspire to see the interest and your thoughts.

As a more tangible thanks to the followers, I've listed the full 100, with links to their profiles if I have them. If you don't already know them, I recommend looking them up.

Equally, if you see a comment on a post here and you don't recognise the commenter, do click and explore. It's the sharing of ideas and energy that makes all of this work.

The order in the list is the order of following, from Big Jim right at the beginning to Justin S. Davis most recently. The guys without custom avatars, i.e. no recorded place in the main sequence, are listed separately below, but they're no less highly regarded!

Names have been switched if the name in the profile is clearly better known; if a profile is unavailable, but another link exists, I've included that one. There are five people I haven't been able to find any link for, so please leave one in the comments if that's you.


Thanks again to everyone!

Great work, Porky. The BIG 100. I'm so happy for you that I'm going to toss in a third bucket of rotten peaches.

The Acrobatic Flea said...

Well done! Thanks for the mention. Keep up the great work ;)

Porky said...

Thanks, guys! I'm glad you think so highly. As for the peaches, I'm still stuck for ideas. Judging by the creativity in C'nor's table, it's The Acrobatic Flea I need to ask.

It's a pleasure to follow your blog and an honour to be on the "blogroll" here!

Keep the weird, interesting, funny and useful thoughts flowing. Those are the reason you reached a 100.

Nicely done and great idea with the links. I bet that took some time to put together.

The Angry Lurker said...

Congratulations again, let's work on getting you more and spreading the words of the Expanse!

Porky said...

Thanks to you too! The honour's mine and your words are very kind. It took a while, Thor, but if it gets more of us exploring, reading and thinking, it's all good.

Congrats man. I love your blog! I am also a bit user envious! I am so happy you have been so successful!

Porky said...

Thanks a lot! You've been here most of the way of course - the success is also thanks to you taking an interest. And there's no need for envy with a blog as good as yours!
