Welcome to the second year of JedABlue.com!

Yes, that’s right: yesterday was the 1-year anniversary of JedABlue.com! This first year was pretty good: Near-Apocalypse of ’09 is off to a rollicking start. My Patreon grew from a few buck a month to $70+ and counting. I started vlogging, and that’s been going really well. And I’ve got a small but excellent group of regular commenters, including the weekend liveblog gang–and I’ve had a blast doing those! (Well, except when I didn’t, but, y’know.)
I’ve got a lot planned for this coming year, too. My Little Po-Mo vol. 3 launches next week; the last of the commissioned essays associated with its Kickstarter should be ready some time next week as well, and I’ll be working to get the fourth and final volume out later in the year. Hopefully sometime this year I’ll finally get to vlog seasons two of Gravity Falls and Steven Universe. re:play Season 1 (Final Fantasy VI) should wrap up later this year or early the next; I already know what I’m doing for Season 2. There’s a new Star Trek movie I’ll probably hate, new MCU stuff that may (Luke Cage, hopefully) or may not (the movies, probably) be good, I’ll be writing about that. And of course I have no intention of ending the adventures of E.N. Morwen anytime soon!
So, basically, thanks everyone for a great year, and I look forward to a great year to come!

    • Hmm. I think the big one is to accept that your traffic WILL drop significantly if your URL changes, even if you set up a redirect.
      Also, having multiple projects does get you more people, but getting people to follow one project to follow others is nigh-impossible.
      Anonymity does far more harm than good; don’t allow it.

  1. Happy anniversary! I got hooked initially on your commentary on Final Fantasy VI (one of my favourite games), but I’ve read bits of what you wrote in The Very Soil (before I realized it contains lots of spoilers), so now I’m watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica, hoping to buy and read the whole book soon.

    • Thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying re:play, and I’ll happily take the credit/blame for getting you to watch Madoka! Let me know what you think when you’re done!

  2. Useful insights! As for the multiple projects, I had that even when I wrote about semi-related topics on my blog. I had people who read the gardening posts but not the bicycling posts and vice versa, but not a lot for both.
