Pierateers celebrate 150,000 with BBC Radio appearance!

It seems people love pies! And it seems people love our pie reviews on www.pierate.co.uk! So today we are delighted to be celebrating our 150,000th page view with a special post highlighting our top pie articles so far and an appearance on BBC Local Radio's "Mark Forrest Show"!

Pierate Pie Review Pageviews

November 2009 – The Pierate Ship sets sail
January 2012 – We celebrated 10,000 pageviews
July 2012 – We reached 15,000 pageviews
March 2013 – We landed on 25,000 pageviews
October 2013 – We hit 50,000 pageviews
February 2014 – We were delighted to make 100,000 pageviews
May 2014 – We are amazed to reach 150,000 pageviews

But wait – there’s more! As it happened, one of the big topics on the BBC Local Radio summary show – the “Mark Forrest Show” – was pies and unusual pie fillings! So no sur-pies that they called on the pie experts the Pierateers and we had a 10 minute conversation with Mark. It was very flattening to hear Mark say "The strength and depth of this blog is something to inspire" and "It's an amazing blog." While sadly the recording was only online for one week, you can read some of the articles we referred to below.

And without further ado, here are our top 5 articles from our first 150,000 pageviews:

1) Best Pies in London Restaurants – 1,585
2) Best Pie in London – 1,516
3) Is it a pie? McDonalds under the knife – 1,426
4) Pierate in the Urban Dictionary - 679
5) What Makes The Best Scotch Pie? - 525

Plus with over 8,000 pageviews already, it’s no surprise our Pierate Pie Rankings page is the most visited page on Pierate!

Thanks once again to all the pie fans out there who make writing all these pie reviews such a PIEleasure! Enjoy!
