May The Fourth be with you!

It’s STAR WARS DAY, and coincidentally, a year since I’ve resumed the blog.

To celebrate this day the blog will be posting non-stop Star Wars content.

Just a quick recap of what’s happened over the past year.

1) We have gotten back to having 1,000 – 1,300 views a day!

Hovering at the 1,000 – 1,300 view / day mark

This is an incredible feat, considering there was a 5 month shut-down. Hopefully everyone who used to follow the blog is back with us. The sad thing is that a lot of that traffic comes from a single post (the walk-through for Doodle God). The goal however will be to maintain (and improve) that traffic to what I managed to reach in 2014 (total year view count of 536,042 = 1,468 views per day).

Look at that dent where I did the shut down
The Yearly stats, with 2014 = half a million views.

2) I’ve been slowly restoring the old content.

Simpson’s “Food Chain”

One of the nice things to learn is that although I did a fantastic job of removing the old blog posts, all of the media from that content was lurking in the backend. Now I have a fun of looking over the 3,447 media items and seeing what has already been posted. You might get the occasional bombardment of posts if you follow via RSS or other places, but I’ll turn off the facebook link for those old content so you don’t get swamped. I’m just going to back date the posts so if you browse anything from 2015 and earlier, that’s old content I’ve restored!

3) Editorial content (original content)

I’ve been generating and sharing some original content via the Editorial Section where I’ve included some more personal items.

4) More Reviews coming

As part of my drive for writing more editorial content, I’m also going to be sharing my restaurant reviews. Most of these will be Sydney-based locations, but could be elsewhere. I did a review of a fantastic restaurant in Canberra, and I’m also considering giving some insight into products, apps, other things I’ve used to share my opinions of them.

5) Recommend the blog to a friend, follow on Facebook

One thing I’d really appreciate is if you could recommend the blog to some friends or people that might enjoy the content that I’m posting. I have created a Facebook Page that is a really easy way to keep up to date with the latest posts, but also provides you with an easy way to SHARE or TAG your friends. For example, know someone that is a little competitive or loves Rick & Morty? You can just tag’em and hopefully they’ll start to follow the blog. Also, there are some things that I share only on the facebook page as a mini-treat (pun-for-example not intended) for those that have LIKED the page and follow it.

Star Wars Battlefront II Trailer

Whilst everyone is very excited about the release of the official teaser for “Star Wars Episode 8 – The Last Jedi”, there was another trailer release that should also cause Star Wars fans to be excited. A New Battlefront game! From the looks of it, it’ll span quite a few eras… and shows events right after The Return of the Jedi.
