There are all sorts of landmarks for bloggers. The first time anyone comments on your blog - the first time one of your posts goes viral - the first time you start making a mark with other bloggers. This morning - let's be precise, at 7.25am on the southbound platform at Tufnell Park tube station - I passed another landmark.
There I was quietly waiting for the 'via Charing Cross' train, and browsing through the Daily Telegraph (really!), when a stranger came up to me. 'I recognise you. Don't you have a blog?', he declared - adding, much to my relief, that he enjoyed reading my musings.
Once I had recovered from the shock - a stranger talking to me at a tube station - I felt a quiet glow of satisfaction ... and the strange, overwhelming desire to share the moment with you.
