Six months in.

It's gone so fast, my first six months of blogging.

I started blogging on the 3rd of March as a way of finding my only little piece of the web. I'd been posting on a few forums, but I was getting disillusioned with posts I spend ages on just dropping of the bottom. I also got fed up with the forum personalities, you know, the guys who've got 3000 posts and no army or the mods who think they're some sort of internet gods. So, I wondered into blogging.

I never imagined that I'd enjoy it so much, having a little place of the web is all well and good, but it's the community (Thanks Ron) that has me hooked. Without the FTW group, this blog would probably just have a couple of visitors, instead it's easily exceeded my expectations.

Have any of you noticed how there's no bitching or superior asshats on any of the blogs. In six months, I've never seen a single nasty comment. Sure, I've seen negitative ones, but only as genuine constructive critism, never nasty like the forums. I think it's becuase in the main, bloggers are a bit more grown up about their hobby.

So, here's a big shout out to the rest of your bloggers, YES - I mean YOU, the guy who's reading this right now, yes YOU! - lol

Thanks to my followers, 76 so far (wow), thanks to everyone who's taken time to post comments on my blog, thanks to all you invisible readers just for taking the time to have a nose. Big thanks to Ron who is the glue that holds us all together. Finally, a big thank you to all those other bloggers who I follow and those I don't, thank you for providing me with more information and inspiration in a day than I get from white dwarf in a year.

So, here's to the next six months!

hey dude. just back from egypt and took a couple of minutes to read the posts you'd done while i was away. your marbo and snipers were great and congrats on the sheer volume of comments you've been getting recently!! unbelievable... thats why i havent commented on them as i thought you wouldnt be looking back at older posts now. You're doing a fantastic job, you have a brilliant army, and the parade ground was genious!

Congrats! Keep up the good work.
Totally agree with you about forum personalities, however the BoLS forum seems pretty nice. First forum I've actually enjoyed in a long time anyways.
