Happy Birthday Blog!
January 6, 2010 16 Comments
That’s right, it was one year ago today that I started this thing up. One whole year of my rambling, nigh-incoherent, unintelligble drivel that I like to think of as writing. I have to say, being modest as always, I’m quite pleased with myself. Not because of any measure of success or recognition, but pleased that I stuck it out. If I am being honest, I didn’t think I would stick it out, particullarly given the false-start I had with the first blog I tried to be a co-author of. I’ve been playing WAR almost non-stop now since closed beta,with a few detours and quick breaks, and still love the game. What it provides, cannot be found anywhere else out there on the MMO market. While my main focus of this blog has changed from the start (along with the primary class I play), I’d like to think that I’ve grown into a broader view of WAR and MMOs in general. My time writing this blog so far has been great for personal introspection and critical inspection of the genre, hobby, enthusiasts, and all things pertaining to MMOs.
I’d like to thank my readers for keeping me going. What I’ve done, has been fueled by all of you guys and the amazing discussions we’ve had here and elsewhere. Honestly without you guys, I don’t think I would have kept going. I really do feel that with all of your guys help, I’ve managed to lay claim to a very miniscule corner of the internet. I cannot express with anymore sincerty or a stronger vigor just how integral this community has been to me.
So, as I said in the questionairre, I don’t really plan ahead, so there is nothing firm for this next year. I’ll just keep writing, and I hope you guys keep reading, and commenting! If you’re interested in stats and what-not, I’ll be posting them for you to gaze at after the jump. I’m very happy with the growth, it’s been a fairly continual upward progression, I owe my thanks to this to Warhammer Alliance, the great blogging community of WAR when I first started, and the continued blogging circle that I’ve found myself in, and of course, Mythic and it’s employees who have pointed out my blog in various venues.
