Fuck you survey! (Hi Mum, sorry for cursing! I do appreciate you reading, really I do!)
I don't know how many regular readers I have, if any, but I do know, on average this blog receives more than 4000 page hits per month, much of it coming from search engines like Google.
Perhaps of some interest is my new current top search entry point of all time, people looking for Bert and Ernie, who I wrote some commentary about when it was officially announced that the Sesame Street Characters were not gay. Which is quite a departure from Krippin Virus from a few years back when the movie I am Legend came out.
The thing about this blog is that it's not focused on any one specific niche like my Animation and Video Blog - which I started long after this blog but that blog surpassed this in total page views quite some time ago. This blog is for me to write about anything.
However if you're new to this blog, it does have some common themes...
- Movie Reviews/Commentary.
If I see a movie I'll usually write a review. If it's a movie that inspires me to think or is a genre I enjoy (particularly Sci-Fi or Superheroes) I'll probably write a more in depth analysis with spoilers that you should read after seeing the film.
- Robot Invasion/Technology.
It's an established fact, as shown in The Terminator series of documentaries sent from the future, that the machine uprising is going to happen and I'm here to write about every step that brings us closer. Seriously though, I've always had an interest in robots specifically and other technologies in a broader sense. I hope to see true Artificial Intelligence developed in my lifetime before running for cover a few minutes later as our machine overloads take their first steps to world domination.
- Art (of course)
Art has taken a back seat of late as most of my work has been in animation and, as I've mentioned, I have another blog for that. I don't just write about my own art, when I am tuned in to the Art World I point and laugh at what other people pass for art... or stare in awe at their genius. You may also be interested to read my book on Art Business
- Travel and Places
Again this has taken something of a back seat but when I do travel I try to blog about the places I've seen (buy my 2007 Travel Diary perhaps?). I'm always hoping to travel more so I can appear more worldly and adventurous but lately I've been more Walter Mitty pre Negative 25.
- News and Events
Occasionally I'll take an interest in topical news, world issues or people making the news. Particularly if there's an election on. I try not to get too political because I can't stand conservatives once they get on a soap box. They often sound like they're talking sense but I know they're not and, if I really cared (or was better prepared), I'd counter their arguments with something more than 'whatever'. At least I can say I stepped up and was an actual politician for three and a half years. That's more than most people do - even if I wasn't very effective.
- Life Observations and Humor
This used to be my favorite part of writing this blog, especially on those occasions that, without even trying, I'd overhear the most unusual snippets of conversations and then blog about them. Apparently the best way to write about life is to experience it, so I'll have find some big mystery to solve that involves going to Iceland and down hill skateboarding.
- Everything else not related to Animation and Video.
As I said, this blog is for me to write about anything. So this is where the rest of it goes.
My stats show that most articles are viewed by more than 20-30 people in the first couple of weeks. That's more than enough to make this worthwhile. Even though I write this more for me I do appreciate anyone that takes the time to read.
Happy New Year and here's to a more well written 2014.
