So, I guess today is my 1 year blogging anniversary. It is a bit anti-climatic since I have fizzled out lately.
So this is kind of a half-hearted year-in-review post.
It started with this kick-off: Not all those who wander are lost. Kind of funny since there was just a dev blog out about “All that is gold does not glitter.” I’ll be getting to that shortly.
Not too long after that I wrote a review of the Astero. The title was “Say hello to my little friend.” It was an inside joke because I published the post a few hours after my daughter was born. She turns 1 in a few days.
In January, I published my (now severely outdated) New Player Exploration Guide. It has been my most viewed post.
Later in January, I kicked off my first poetry contest called “PLEX for Parody“. It was a lot of fun and led to some great EVE poems.
In February, I hit 10,000 page views and I felt like I actually had people reading the blog. It was pretty exciting.
I did a Limerick contest in March, it did ok , but wasn’t as good as the parody contest.
In May, I attempted my first “In-character” blog post. May was also the first month I received more than 10,000 page views in a single month.
In August, I launched a treasure hunt. It was way too much work.
September was where I fizzled and I haven’t done much since then.
The blog continues to get quite a few page views. I came up just short of 100,000 views in my first year. I am sitting at 91,977 at this moment. That is actually quite a bit better than I was expecting. Thank you to all that read and commented and sent traffic my way.
There is actually a bit of interesting exploration news coming up. I like some of the changes and will be writing about them eventually.
