100 Posts, a year of blogging and a small competition
Last night I wrote my 100th blog post without actually realising it and in two days Through Newb Eyes will be 1 Year old. Obligatory stats time. Also competition.
100 posts across one year.
That averages 2.3 posts a week.
261 total comments averages to about 2.6 comments a post!
38,863 Unique views at the time of writing, with the most popular post being my Winter Expansion ‘Crucible’ Features list at a whopping 16,000 views. I put this down to initially linking it on the r/EVE subreddit on Reddit.com.
November 2011 has accounted for 50% of my total views. Getting linked on an EVE Online dev blog helped with that too.
The largest number of referral links came from Reddit.com, followed by people coming from The Altruist, narrowly followed by Twitter with 1,337 referrals.
The most clicked on link? That’d be to my gallery of some of the new V3’d ship hulls here.
So all I can say is thank you to everyone who reads, comments and recommends.
But that’s not all
A year deserves something special, does it not? 100 Posts something else? I’m sure it does.
So I’m running my first EVE competition. It’s not going to be big, I don’t have all the ISK in the world.
I will be awarding 120 Million ISK as a First Prize, and a Navy Augororororororor I have sitting in the Autaris System in Lonetrek (hilarious fit and all) as a runner up for this competition. Trimark rigged, of course.
The competition? It’s simple enough. I want you to link me your favourite piece of EVE fan work with a reason why you feel this is favourable.
That’s blogs, screenshots, songs, videos, concept art and whatever you can think of EVE related.
In 3 days I will pick my favourite one listed and award the prizes. It’s that simple.
To enter you have two options – comment on this post or send me an EVE-Mail at tgl3. I’d use twitter, but it could get swamped by other replies.
Don’t forget your reasons why, and specify your character name so I know who to send the prizes to!
Edit: If two or more people post the same fan work, the one with the best reasoning wins out!
