Looking back

I wrote my first blog entry on 18th September 2008, and this is the 3,534th entry I have written since then! In that time my blog has been viewed over two and a half million times(!) and the average number of 'visits' per day is just under 408.

Early on I decided to save all my blog entries in the form of a diary, and over recent days I have been looking back at those blog entries with a view to seeing if there are any mini-campaigns, ideas, or projects that I had forgotten about. Surprisingly there were ... and in particular the mini-campaigns stood out as being simple to set up, quick to fight, and enjoyable to stage. Re-reading the battle reports were a real fillip to my rather jaded wargaming palette, and the sooner I can start another min-campaign, the better! (I have a couple of writing projects to finish first, but the joy of mini-campaigns is that they can easily fit in with other projects without causing too much disruption.)

The only problem that I can foresee is deciding where and when to set my next mini-campaign ... but in truth, who knows and who cares ... just as long as I have some fun?

      I must admit that the number of blog posts and visits was a bit of a shock to me! Good luck with trying to catch up!

      All the best,

      Cheers! I try to write something every day - which is not always easy - to help keep my brain working. The fact that other people seem to enjoy reading what I write helps me to maintain the motivation to keep doing it.

      All the best,

      Bob

  3. Hi Bob,

    Very impressive numbers and I am sure that will enthuse your 'jaded wargaming palette' somewhat! As a suggestion re the mini campaign as I recall there was something you did about clearing out a nest of pirates? Marzibar featured if I remember correctly.

    Of course there is always Back to Madasahatta....

    All the best,

    DC

      I'm not sure where or when my next mini-campaign will be set, but Madasahatta is certainly on the list.

      All the best,

      Bob

  4. I'm looking forward to seeing your next Mini-Campaign - will it be a Colonial setting?

      It is likely to be in either a Colonial or a World War II setting ... but I have yet to decide which.

      All the best,

      Bob

      I sometimes wonder if the dreams are part of the enjoyment we get from wargaming.

      All the best,
