This is just a very short blog to say thank you to all of you have visited my humble blog and left comments and joined in discussions. It really does help to hear what you think, even if it’s a really short comment and you don’t have to agree with everything. Debates are healthy – especially if it increases allergy awareness.
Thank you from
I have lots planned for 2014 and it’s all very exciting so watch this space. I hope to publish some ebooks which I hope you’ll all find interesting.

But first of all, here is a report from WordPress about how did in 2013.

Interestingly the most popular subjects that people searched for were:

  • celery allergy
  • linalool
  • aqueous cream
  • allergic reaction on face
  • toothpaste on cold sore

Q) Which subjects do you search for most on the internet? What would you like to find out more about or see written about more?

And the most popular blog posts are mostly ones that I wrote back in 2011 and 2012.

These are the posts that got the most views in 2013. You can see all of the year’s most-viewed posts in your Site Stats.

  1. Do’s and Don’ts for fighting cold sores 283 comments – February 2011
  2. Top 10 Tips for getting over an allergic reaction 35 comments – March 2011
  3. How do you cope with an eczema flare up? 127 comments – February 2012
  4. What is celery allergy? 95 comments – April 2011
  5. Ten tips for coping with Nickel allergy! 17 comments – July 2011

I will be writing more about that stuff as it seems it’s still all very relevant to you readers.

And readers are not just from the UK but all over the world; mostly in the USA and Australia – both countries with high prevalence of allergy.

The busiest day of the year was December 16th with 2,911 views – whoop whoop!

So once again. Thank you. Don’t be strangers. Please comment. Please say Hi. And please share any blogs with friends and tell them about What Allergy.
