1st Anniversary!!


sh

Wow, it’s been a year ever since I started this Blog. Time sure flies!! Today marks the day when this Blog turns 1 Year old!! Weeee~XD

I have to say, this Blog sure have gone a long way ^^ I still remember when I first started exactly a year ago.

Originally, I started with LiveJournal around mid-2007, but I didn’t start writing entries until around December 2007, which kinda pathetic for me ^^; In the end I decided to switch over to WordPress in early January 2008.

When I first started on WordPress, originally it was geared towards my interest at that time, which was Gunpla and Figurines. As you might have noticed, as time goes by, Gunpla topics started to fade away from this Blog and in the end, it becomes solely to Figurine news and reviews.

Well, one reason is because I’m starting to get busy and there’s no time for me to build them. Right now I still have 2 backlog Gunpla which I still haven’t build yet, one is 1/100 Gundam Astraea which I got back in April 2007 and the other is MG RX78-G3 which I got recently from AFA2008.

Another reason is because I don’t have the funds to support both interests ^^; In the end, I’ve decided to choose Figurines over Gunpla. Of course, I will still try to update and slip in some Gunpla news in between figures from time to time ^^

The birth of this Blog was mainly motivated because of great Bloggers such as Danny and Foo-Bar-Baz ^^ Of course I won’t be able to get this far without the support of you guys, frequent readers and commenters ^^ Not to forget Otaku.fm and Animenano in helping promoting my Blog to the community, and also Team Blue, which I’m really grateful of.

Right now, my Blog is still growing at a steady pace with an average of 1400 hits per day, ranging from 1,200 hits to 1,700 hits daily. Highest hit for me was on December 23rd, 2008 at 1,807 hits. Of course, the month of December 2008 holds the highest hits with 41,344 hits ^^

Additionally, I would also like to thank the following Top 5 Bloggers in referring me the most:

1. Anime-Baka – Fariz Asuka (Now Kyouran Kyodai)
2. Exelica Meteor – James
3. Deathseeker – Panther
4. Striket’s にようこそ! – Striket
5. Gordonator – Gordon

As for the path this Blog will go in the year 2009, I will do my best to update and deliver you guys the latest news and updates even more!! ^^ Other plans also includes the “Never Ending Backlog Reviews”, which I really need to do. The last time I did my reviews was in October 2008, so this will be one of my top priority to-do-list in 2009!!~XD

Also, to celebrate this Blog 1st Anniversary, I have decided to move my Blog to a bigger server and get my own domain. I already got my own server with the help of Panther, so the move will be on soon. I’ll update you guys on this at later date ^^

Lastly, I would like to thank you guys again for all the support all this time, and hopefully this Blog will keep growing in time to come

Cheers!!~\( ^ _ ^ )/
