Normally this would be a happy moment for most bloggers, but there had to be a dark side to my story. The actual day of this blog’s creation was five days ago. *smashes head against the wall some more* I must be the most absolute fool of all the fools! How could I have done something so immensely stupid! I always thought, I started this blog in the middle of November and I knew I was meant to check soon to be sure, but evidently it was too late… As much as I was almost going to decide against making this post, I felt it would be too important to pass up, no matter how stupid I may actually be by forgetting the original date. So, as I continue to hit my head against anything solid near me, I am going to pretend for the next half of this post that nothing bad ever happened. (Ignore your problems in life children!)
A new image, to start off the lighter side of this post! 😀
Anywho…. A year has finally passed in this little old blog. It still surprises me how long its been, especially since if anyone actually read my first blog post (which I did link to, no matter how stupid I think it seems) I really did seem like a noob. So, the fact that I’ve gotten this far is pretty impressive. My written style and post style has also changed. At first, I would only really make some serious reviews about movies and then I moved on to episode reviews (I’m glad I eventually discovered the use of commas). From there, my design for the posts really changed through the months and even now, they go through many changes and I’m still trying to find one specific format.
Blogging has probably changed my life a lot. By being part of the “blogging world”, I was able to meet a lot of interesting people and it’s always interesting to read what they have to think about the things that interest me. It really makes me happy to think about all the friends I made over the time and I owe them a lot for all the comments and such. Blogging has also took up a lot of my time, but I don’t really regret it.
For a bit of information, as of now, I have had 61,294 views in total, my best day was at 774 views. Here’s a monthly chart of all my views:
I also decided to share with you my weirdest referrer, which was from Neopets. I remember I used to go when I was really young, though the password to my account is long gone and so any possibilities of me having a link from myself is pretty slim. Also, when I tried to see where the link went to, I only got a 404 error. At first, I presumed that maybe it was just from a guild or something, but the link evidently states it was in the games section, so however that happened, I can’t explain!
Akismet has also helped me, by preventing all 792 spam comments and counting from my blog!
Though naturally, the true people I must be thankful to is my viewers! Without you, I would never really know how to improve myself and if I never got any viewers to begin with, I would have probably gave up as a blogger long ago. Though, there were many months when I never received any comments except for few and I doubted I would get any more, but I kept on writing anyway and I’m pretty content where I am now, but there is still room for improvement.
Thank you all once again, for putting up with the forgetful procrastinator! This year I’ll make a goal of being more organized! X)
I hope to see you all next year!
