This is my 10,000th blog post. Ten thousand posts in ten years of blogging.
Who'd have believed I could hit such a landmark? Certainly not me. I've never even held down a real job for as long as this!
Nine years and six months in and I still haven't really settled on a focus for HeroPress, tighter than "geeky stuff I like", but it's worked so far.
Honestly, I'd really like to write more posts about roleplaying games and/or comics. With the Tuesday Knights' current three-year Heroes & Other Worlds campaign reaching its climax, I'm hoping that my planned superhero campaign to follow will give me a justification to scratch both those itches.
Admittedly I'm hanging a lot of hope on the upcoming release of Villains & Vigilantes Third Edition...
In the meantime, let's take a quick survey of the content of HeroPress post contents, using the popularity of their tags:
- COOL WEBSITES: what can I say? I love to share links, I think it's a fundamental part of the DIY journalism of blogging. You link to something of interest and you hope that someone who likes what you've written will acknowledge their appreciation through a link from their site.
- FILM: A major passion of mine, much like...
- TV: Couldn't live without it.
- RPG: One of my core, enduring, hobbies.
- TRAILER: As an adjunct to my love of film and television, I enjoy sharing trailers and clips from movies and shows that I think other people should know about.
- REAL LIFE: With our ever-growing family of fur-babies (Barney the bunny and Alice the eternal puppy), Rachel and I have our hands full. And sadly, despite mountains of comics and DVDs, and multiple games to play, there's no (safe or sane) long-term way of escaping real life. Sometimes even I have to live in the real world, and sometimes the real world comes a-knockin'.
- COMICS: My other long-lasting hobby.
- DVD: Supplemental to my enjoyment of films and TV is the hobbyist collector in me who likes to have his films lined up on shelves, in artfully-decorated boxes. Yes, I'm a hoarder!
- DR WHO: Still a surprisingly popular tag despite the fact that Stephen Moffat has systematically dismantled any interest I had in this show.
- HORROR: The young contender, finally breaking its way into the top ten tags, due to it being one of my favourite genres of film and TV (see above).
So, that's a taste of what the last 10,000 posts have been about; let's see where the next 10,000 will take us.
And, as ever, a massive thank you to you, the reader, for taking the time to read my rambles.
