I finally got round to looking at the analytics last week, and it appears that the traffic on Permanent Style has grown from 140,000 visitors a month to an average of 190,000 without me noticing.

The peak in September and increase in visitors from Japan suggests a certain ‘icon’ feature may have had something to do with it, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the past five years. I do hope you continue to like it, and don’t forget to check out The Rake online now as well.
