Four years ago today, I started a blog that slowly morphed into the one you’re reading right now. Over a series of casual blog posts, mostly centering around my gaming habits, I’ve been able to achieve something I never have before now — a blog that I’ve posted to in a fairly consistent manner.
There have been a few hitches now and then. I decided to re-brand twice. I also switched domains once and moved web hosts once. But all in all, the overall tone and approach of this blog has remained the same.
I think a big part of the longevity is allowing a variety of writing topics — everything from the latest social failure in the Duty Finder to my first cruise vacation. While I don’t tend to go off on wild tangents too often, having the freedom to talk about whatever is on my mind has widened my scope quite a bit.
The other thing that amazes me is that I’m still playing the same game as my main MMO as I was back when I started this blog. While I did venture off to try a few other games on the side, it seems like FFXIV still has its hooks in me. That doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon.
Anyhow, I want to send my appreciation to all my blogging pals and readers! Your support and comments are still as exciting and special today as they were 4 years ago. Thanks for joining me on this ride!
Has it only been four years? Congrats on carrying on, may you continue well into the future!
Yeah, I have to do the math every year… but it’s only been four. That’s long for me, though!
Thanks for the encouragement and setting a good example! 🙂
Well done you! That’s one hell of a milestone! I do like the duty finder pieces. Nothing more fun than reading about how horrible other people on the internet can be!
Thank you! Glad I can spin some tales of entertainment! It’s sometimes the only way I can vent about grouping frustrations. XD
Congrats! Feels like much longer than that (in a good way! =)
Thank you! I can’t shake the feeling that it’s been longer, too. But the post dates don’t like I suppose. 🙂
Grats! It really does seem like you’ve been around here longer than four years. Keep on keeping on!
It really DOES feel longer. I had to keep re-checking and asking, “Isn’t this 5 years? No? Rats!”
GRATS! Here’s to many more years to come!
Thanks so much! It’s been an amazing ride! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Four years! Surely you can call yourself a veteran blogger by now, eh? 🙂
Hahah! I don’t know. There’s been bloggers around a whole lot longer than that! I still feel like a baby blogger!
Though, that’s a good question. At what point do you become a “vet” blogger? I suppose that depends on the community to decide. 🙂
