Today, Crossword Unclued celebrates in second birthday - I took the plunge into blogging with Tackling Cryptic Crosswords: 7-Step Guide For Beginners on 8th August 2008. It has been a fantastic journey since then. We are 216 articles strong at this time and I enjoy every minute of writing here.
Thanks a lot to you for reading and engaging with this blog, and to crossword creators for giving me plenty of fodder to write about.
The Last Twelve Months: A Brief Look
The last year carried several articles about the cryptic crossword grid, of which the ones on Ninas and pangrammatic grids are the most popular. There were 20 articles about cryptic word associations like posh = U and enemy = time, 15 articles on wordplay devices such as D by E and false capitalization, the setting styles of Hindu Crossword compilers (1, 2, 3), opinion polls (1, 2) and book reviews (1, 2).
Visitors: Facts & Figures
53% of our daily visitors come through Google search. The most popular search terms are "cryptic crosswords for beginners", "crossword aids" and (curiously!) "abaci summers". The highest-ranking proper noun in search terms is "Nita Jaggi"; occasionally a stray visitor comes looking the true identities of Gridman, Neyartha, and even "real name shuchi crossword". Some frustrated solvers land here with search terms like "how long before I can solve times uk crossword" – I hope they find some encouragement on Crossword Unclued.
