2012 for Etaew’s Blog

blog_2012_stats

This year has been incredible for me as a blogger, as you can see I finished university around March / April and started posting a lot more regularly, I went from a few hundred views a month to regularly getting thousands.

I’m pretty humbled by this, the +1 views is my motivator and keeps driving me to produce content. The visitor rise trend has been 3 months straight, here is hoping for January.

This year saw me…

  • Become responsible for DAoC / WAR / WoH wikis – and then lose motivation to work on them all
  • Join a new multi gaming community – and then stop playing the games they did
  • Started playing and covering Star Wars: The Old Republic, Wrath of Heroes, The Secret World and Guild Wars 2 – and stopped playing and covering them all
  • Started recording video of my guilds GW2 WvW sessions – bought a new pc to improve it, then I stopped playing
  • Establish myself as a regular DAoC blogger – and I still am, it filled a nice void in the DAoC community
  • Work on a number of projects with Mythic emps – can’t talk about it but loved it
  • Experiment with feature articles – didn’t work out, took too much effort for the satisfaction gained
  • Start new website projects
    • War Campaign – stopped because data gathering was vital but too difficult
    • DAoC Herald – stopped for the same reasons as war
    • DAoC Charplan  – really enjoyed project, still working on it, may finish it, scope expanded so much it became DAoC DB

I’ve been experimenting where to post links to my articles over the past year, some pick up my posts automatically, some I have to go and spam.

The search engines score is so high because of being on a wordpress.com domain, this thing holds me back when wanting to move onto my own platform.

  • Many thanks to the DAoC community at postcount.net (formerly vnboards).
  • Thanks to waaagh.de for covering me when I talked about War and weritsblog.com for including me in his blogroll.
