K is for Keep

Ginnels Gates and Ghosts is one year old today! Within that year there have been over 21,000 hits on the blog and visitors from 102 different countries. Much of that traffic was generated by the CDP portal and I for one really miss that window on the world, here's hoping it returns one day. 
Of all the pictures posted those of Clifford's Tower, the Keep of York castle, are amongst the most appreciated. I have taken the liberty of adding a little artistic licence to this image of the Tower to celebrate today. Many thanks for all your comments, it is always a pleasure to read those that have been left by both regular and new visitors, and to visit your blogs and view your take on the world.

  1. Congratulations on one year, Deb- tempus fugit. Have really enjoyed Year One and the personal guided tour in July too. Here's to Year 2 of Ginnels Gates and Ghosts. "Keep" blogging ;-)

  2. Well done Deb. I too have enjoyed the journey and recently revisited York after many years, in part thats due to your inspiration. I also really miss the CDP portal, one of those this thats just there until its not.

  3. We have few castles in the states, so a keep (which showed up earlier on the ABCW) just never comes to mind! Good choice.

  4. One year old, eh? Well done. And may you continue from strength to strength. I know the commitment that is required.

    My country, as you may well know, does not run to castles or keeps, so seeing them via another person's blog is a window to magic for me.

    I am not confident that CDPB portal will return. People are working behind the scenes ... but I am not confident. Will you be able to participate in the Theme Day of 'silhouette' this coming Monday? The address for the meme is

  5. Hurray for you Deb! I enjoy visiting every day and seeing all the history in your town. And all the neat things like the cats.
    I really miss the portal too.

  6. Wow, that is beautiful!

  7. Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary.
    (I also really miss the CDPB portal and wish for a return or a similar replacement.)

  8. Congratulations on Year One! I have really enjoyed all the history and photos you've shared over the past year.

  9. Calling by from ABC Wednesday,letter K. Congratulations on Year One, now following you officially. I have you have stayed dry, we heard about the flooding in York on the television last night. At least the Keep will stay dry.

    1. Delighted you are along for the journey. I have managed to avoid the floods so far thanks and you are right up in the Keep is the driest place to be right now!
