Consider This – The First Month
June 5, 2010 38 Comments
It’s been exactly a month since I started this blog, and although I wasn’t quite sure how it would fare and whether anyone would take notice of it and bother to read, I must say I am incredibly pleased with the how things have turned out to date:
55,000 views, 340 comments, 32 posts, and 25 RSS subscribers.
Are those numbers good or bad for a fresh blog? I honestly have no clue whatsoever! But, if I were to have made a prediction when I wrote my first entry, I would have projected way lower, so as far as I’m concerned, things have succeeded admirably, and if it compares unfavorably relative to the start of other similar sites, then who cares.
I simply wanted to take the time to make this post, thanking all readers and commenters alike. I’m glad to know my ramblings are of interest to some people out there, and I’m sure this site will become even more fleshed out – in terms of posts, yes, but also other features and overall design – in the months to come, all because you all seem to enjoy it and take something of worth from it.
There is a decent probability that sometime in the next month or two I’ll switch to an actual private website, as opposed to this freely hosted one, largely because I hate the limitations imposed. I doubt the current amount of traffic necessarily justifies such a move and the related cost, but whatever – it would make me happy and improve site quality for what traffic there is, so what else matters! Assuming I do end up doing so, that would open the way for me to do so much that I currently can’t. It would also mean I would likely move my Unholy guide completely offsite from EJ, as I would be better able to organize/add/format/etc the information here then I would there. I’ld also likely expand to sharing my expertise in the area of Frost (although I would probably ignore Blood dps, due to its upcoming demisre). As I make up my mind on how to handle things, I’m sure I’ll share any upcoming transitions well before things are final. And, if at the end the day I simply stay here off wordpress.com, then I’ll make the most of it.
Any which way, as always, if anyone has any feedback on the current layout or any suggestion as to future additions, do let me know. I obviously can’t promise I’ll agree with and implement everything, but I can guarantee I’ll listen to it all and add as much as I can and as much as I feel fits the site.
In short; thank you.
