Happy birthday to us! Coronation Street Blog celebrates five years online

Today, December 11 2012, our Coronation Street Blog celebrates its fifth birthday.

It first went online on December 11, 2007 and since then has grown so much it now attracts hundreds of thousands of dedicated Corrie fans every single month.

So THANK YOU - to everyone who blogs here, to everyone who reads and enjoys the Blog, leaves comments, enters our competitions or has just popped in to see what all the fuss is about. 

Have a look at the Coronation Street Blog achievements for 2012.

Recently, I realised that I have been coming on here for more than 2 years, oh my, how time fly! Even if I don't watch the show for a long time, I enjoy reading the blog and it make me feel like I've been watching! :)

Before, when we were 10 months behind, I didn't read this blog because it wasn't yet relevant, but now that Canada is less than 2 weeks behind (YAY!) and some wonderful viewers upload the show to Youtube, I can enjoy the bonus benefit of the blogs and comments on this site. Often the insights and opinions are more entertaining than the show itself. Thanks!

Congratulations, I love the blog and a lot of the time these days I enjoy spending more time here than watching the show! I love reading the comments and viewers ideas for future story lines.
Thanks for all your hard work - here's to many more years!
Beth
