I’ve officially been at this for a month, having started Gaming Ballistic on Dec 26, 2012.
Well, I’ve found it’s not too hard to keep up a pretty steady stream of posts. My wife is less than completely pleased with this.
On the other hand, it would seem that over 450 people have checked this out at least once, and while Blogger reads high for various reasons, it reports about 4500 page views in that time, so I’m probably hitting about 100-150 real views per day. Cool!
More importantly, 170+ comments, which honestly is where the real fun is – the interaction.
No one seems to really use the check-boxes at the bottom of each post, so that’s not a good tool for judging the interest level of particular posts.
The most useful kind of post, to me, seems to be the read-throughs. I’m slogging my way through Pathfinder (slogging because it’s over 500 pages long, and very technical), but I have plans to also review the new FATE Core, as well as GURPS Monster Hunters and Action, which is probably the most under-appreciated two-volume e23 release in GURPSdom.
The post I did on Technical Grappling was well received, so once the Big Damn Ogre is out of the way and we start really seeing GURPS releases again, perhaps it’ll even sell a few copies.
But, it’s fun, and I’m going to keep doing it. So . . . successful first month!
