200,000 views and 2500 Comments!

Hi Gang!


A completely self congratulatory post today! But over the last 24 hours I have hit two milestones that seem worthy of a little celebration!! I have another one coming up soon that will involve a giveaway so keep your eyes peeled!

So 200,000 views! Blimey! That seems pretty insane to me, and I'm approaching 3,000,000 views on my google+ profile which blows my tiny little mind! More than views though to have so many comments on my blog, both constructive for me and also showing that other people have found my ramblings helpful is actually very humbling.

I can not thank all my readers both regular and infrequent enough for all the help and kindness as well as sarcastic humour ;)

It feel unbelievably awesome to have carved out my own little niche in this hobby that people seem to continue to enjoy visiting :) I have many plans for the future with more review content, plenty of models including a good batch of alternative GW models as well as more and more new armies cropping up! 

So hopefully you're looking forward to seeing what is in store as much as I'm looking forward to building and writing it! I've had a fair rough time of late with a large degree of mental health problems, but the blog and hobby have always been a great refuge and inspiration for me, so thank you, thank you again, and thank you a thousand times more. 

As I said, keep your eyes peeled for the next milestone I will pass soon where I will have some goodies up for grabs!

Peace out,

Rob

  3. Keep the good work going Rob, your blog is amazing and certainly makes me put more effort into my own site centre you're 'snapping at my heels' ;)

    From my own experience so much of the hobby involves 'living inside your own head' and an inordinate amount of thinking. The blog is definitely an opportunity to look outside and connect with folk so keep that in mind when things get tough.

    Stay frosty :)

    1. Hahaha I bow to you padawan, you shall always have the high ground :P

      I've found your introspective blog posts on the mentality of the hobby and how that bleeds into real life and blogging in a back and forth manner very helpful with my 'in the head time' so thank 'ee kindly sir :)

  5. It's a great blog rob, that's why, and for people like me who've watched it from day 1 it's been fascinating to see the change in style and content, and the improvement in your painting over the same time frame.

    1. Well for me, so much of my improvement has come from that incredible level of feedback and refinement. Always great from you and Naf given you were privy to my extremely humble beginnings on TDC!
