Well, I'm sitting around in Bugman's posting this from my phone. It's a bit of a slack Monday post, but you're going to have to live with it! Refunds can be applied for from the usual address. ;-)
We attended the Grand Opening yesterday, and came back today when it was quieter. We had an excellent chat with some of the studio and Forge World staff yesterday - today has been more about the non-event Warhammer World exclusives.
Also, the blog passed a milestone last week, surging past 100,000 views. Now, a lot of that was from back when I typed up the Forge World seminars, but the traffic from that has reduced in the past few years as other people have been able to get faster reports out than I have. I don't begrudge that - I started reporting events because I was seeing so much mis-remembering or out of context quoting. There's now people being proactive, getting high quality pictures and good write ups. Fair play to them - I'm not interested in putting in the effort to do that - I've always been a hobby blogger first and a geek hobby gonzo journalist second.
The 100,000 count is obviously going to be a bit misleading - there will be piles of bots and other junk in amid the hobbyists. Still, it is a milestone of sorts which I'm happy with. There's still folk who read and comment, or say they've read the blog. I still mostly get blank looks if I meet a hobbyist and mention the blog, with a few rare exceptions.
The rest of today is a day of daydreams and thoughts of what might be in the future. This is no terrible thing - I want to do fewer posts bemoaning that I've not got things done, or over-thinking how I organise my painting. I also wonder if the answer is to read less and write more. Thoughts are still half formed, and if they crystallise, I may share them. In the meantime, happy dreams and hobby.
