We have just passed 5 years of blogging (intermittently, granted) about wargaming via this channel.
(odd, I started this in 2009, yet the data for analytics goes back to 2006?)
In light of that I wanted to reflect on a few other landmarks, talk about successful content and offer you some thing, gentle reader.
We have also just passed 450 followers, this is awesome. I know that my daily readership isn't that high, but the idea that 450+ people were kind enough to want to click through to see more of my ramblings is quite something.
I've also just passed 300,000 pageviews, which also isn't a lot for a website, but for my lil’ ol’ blog it feels like a big deal.
My most popular content of all time is My Stormtalon conversion, good news as I have footage for a video on that waiting to be edited into shape as I have two more converted up as escorts for the flying wolf circus.
Content touching on conversions from the starter sets is also always very popular, such as the AoBR grey knight conversion and the Dark Vengeance Librabrian conversion.
One of the things that makes me most pleased is that readers come form all over the world, sure the majority are English and US but there are Wargamers all over the world and this channel puts us all in touch, that's brilliant!
In light of these things I'd like to do something for at least one of you. I have sat here one of the web exclusive space marine captains, and I play guard, wolves and Orks. no real good way to convert him sooo.. I thought I'd give him away.
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning him is be a follower and post a comment below. In the comment say whether you want him painted by me, or left unsullied, and if painted by me, then which chapter and wither based for play or display (or both). I’ll also include an option for people who dont play marines at all to talk to me about a character more suitable for thier army, let’s call that “other” and If i draw your name out of the hat, I'll speak with you via email about it.
So make sure in the comment to include the keywords above as appropriate and we’ll go from there.
Thanks for reading the ramble, may the 4th be with you!
(oh yeah, end date, I want people to have time to see this, so i’ll randomise the winnder on the 1st of June)
