"And Then There Were None..."

And Then There Were None: title of a thrilling Agatha Christie play in which the suspects are mysteriously murdered one by one? Or, apt analogy of what I thought would happen if I started a blog.
Initially, one or two readers (that's why they're called friends), perhaps an innocent internet user who googled best dumplings in Singapore...but I honestly assumed the 'fanbase' would peter out. Very quickly. Especially, after http://diaryofanexpatinsingapore.blogspot.sg/2009/11/maybe-it-wont-rain.html  A post about rain in Singapore...really?
Instead, contrary to all logic, the blog has taken on a life of its own and this morning, I am as surprised as you, to see it hit 50,000 views! What's even more awesome is to see how disparate the audience is...Singapore and England fairly predictable....Afghanistan and Bahrain...not so much!
So, thank you reader! It would have been great to write an Agatha Christie play...have the same ending as one? Not so much!
Fun little interview I did today for ExpatFocus:


  1. Wow-congratulations!! I love your blog!

  2. Yoohoo! Way to go!!

  3. Hmmm, not to nit pick but it's not 50,000 anymore...it's already 50,069!! Well done!

  4. We've just expanded your fan-base by one!

    Julian, Elektra and Nikita

  5. I'm not surprised, Jennifer! Diary of An Expat in Singapore is a really well written blog and the content is fun, interesting and useful (unlike some other blogs I could mention but won't!) Congrats and keep up the good work!
