Happy birthday Free Movement

The first blog post on Free Movement was on 7 March 2007. Yet again, I managed to miss the blog’s birthday! The spanking post was perhaps a suitable commemoration, though: a serious topic covered with a frivolous headline.

Since 7 March 2007 there have been:

  • 3,048,451 visits to Free Movement
  • 921 Free Movement blog posts
  • 4 Home Secretaries

It is also a year since the Forum launched. There are something like 300 users (the automatic stats seem to double count some people and I’m not going to tot them up manually to check), 300 topics and just over 1000 replies.

There have been some very good posts on Free Movement by colleagues past and present and, looking ahead, we plan to transfer the Garden Court Chambers Immigration Law Bulletin to Free Movement, I am mulling over the possibility of hosting audio podcasts (the first test one is here for Forum users) and I am also considering hosting a subscription-style CPD service. If you have any thoughts about the podcasts and/or CPD I’m very interested, leave a comment or drop me a line.

Thanks for reading and for your support.
