I’ve looked at previous blog anniversary entries, and I see how a lot of things have changed. I’m drawing this year, I’m not writing as much this year, last year I felt I should have written much more during the year before, and now I don’t really care anymore. I have over one hundred and fifty story drafts, most of them undeveloped, unfinished ideas I’ve recently been taking up in documents of varying lengths. My unfinished stories contain many thousands of words and that’s a good thing, because last year I had nothing to show for all those drafts. I’m getting somewhere, although where that is, no one knows.
I’m not going to bother posting blog stats because I stopped looking at them a while back, but here’s an image about page views. Wait a minute! My missing countries have gone from 50 to 48! Who’s visited? Oh, my… this I have to know. Well, that deserves a post of its own at a later time. The thing to know is that there are now only forty-eight countries in the world where my blog has never been visited. At this rate I’ll have covered the entire planet with my online presence in about a century. I can think of far worse goals for myself, but I think that one is more easily accomplished if I take the trouble of visiting those countries and logging on from where people are allowed internet access. The Vatican has likely blocked places like these. Don’t want the Pope looking at enormous ladies or whatever.
Three years in a row, this comic has continued to be the most viewed image in my blog, I have no idea why, but now I see that the image below is four clicks away from taking first place as my most viewed image. I’m glad, because it’s one I spent a long time creating, including the easter eggs no one has noticed. : )
The image I think deserves the Most Viewed sash hasn’t been published because I haven’t finished drawing it, and when I post it, it will only be seen by a handful of people because that’s the way of things when I create the distinctly niche things I create. Happy anniversary to me, and to the immense amount of energy I’ve spent building a world with a single, gigantic inhabitant.
