It's Birthday Week on Got A Ukulele - FIVE Years Old!

Happy birthday to me! - can't believe how quickly this one came around but this week Got A Ukulele turns FIVE years old (yes, Five!).

I had no idea when this started that it would grow to prove so popular. I remember when I would ge thrilled looking at stats to see I had received over 100 page views in a day - these days it is well over 5,000 and the blog has (at the time of writing this) received over 6.18 MILLION views - all rather humbling.

The review count on instruments and accessories is now approaching 100 items, over 20 interviews with well known names in the ukulele worlds and is still home to one of the largest club and festival databases around. Oh - and a few rants along the way.

I am also delighted to announce that as five years is something of a milestone, the good guys at Omega Music have announced their support on a great giveaway competition that will be launching very soon. They are supplying five (one for each year!!) ukey prizes  including a fabulous uke with gig bag. I am so thankful to them.

For now though - my MANY thanks for your continued support and watch this space for the competition announcement!

Thanks again
