Ten Thousand Posts In Ten Years!


This is my 10,000th blog post. Ten thousand posts in ten years of blogging.

Who'd have believed I could hit such a landmark? Certainly not me. I've never even held down a real job for as long as this!

Nine years and six months in and I still haven't really settled on a focus for HeroPress, tighter than "geeky stuff I like", but it's worked so far.

Honestly, I'd really like to write more posts about roleplaying games and/or comics. With the Tuesday Knights' current three-year Heroes & Other Worlds campaign reaching its climax, I'm hoping that my planned superhero campaign to follow will give me a justification to scratch both those itches.

Admittedly I'm hanging a lot of hope on the upcoming release of Villains & Vigilantes Third Edition...

In the meantime, let's take a quick survey of the content of HeroPress post contents, using the popularity of their tags:
  1. COOL WEBSITES: what can I say? I love to share links, I think it's a fundamental part of the DIY journalism of blogging. You link to something of interest and you hope that someone who likes what you've written will acknowledge their appreciation through a link from their site.
  2. FILM: A major passion of mine, much like...
  3. TV: Couldn't live without it.
  4. RPG: One of my core, enduring, hobbies. 
  5. TRAILER: As an adjunct to my love of film and television, I enjoy sharing trailers and clips from movies and shows that I think other people should know about.
  6. REAL LIFE: With our ever-growing family of fur-babies (Barney the bunny and Alice the eternal puppy), Rachel and I have our hands full. And sadly, despite mountains of comics and DVDs, and multiple games to play, there's no (safe or sane) long-term way of escaping real life. Sometimes even I have to live in the real world, and sometimes the real world comes a-knockin'. 
  7. COMICS: My other long-lasting hobby. 
  8. DVD: Supplemental to my enjoyment of films and TV is the hobbyist collector in me who likes to have his films lined up on shelves, in artfully-decorated boxes. Yes, I'm a hoarder! 
  9. DR WHO: Still a surprisingly popular tag despite the fact that Stephen Moffat has systematically dismantled any interest I had in this show.
  10. HORROR: The young contender, finally breaking its way into the top ten tags, due to it being one of my favourite genres of film and TV (see above).

So, that's a taste of what the last 10,000 posts have been about; let's see where the next 10,000 will take us.

And, as ever, a massive thank you to you, the reader, for taking the time to read my rambles.

      I sometimes forget that not everybody watched the same shows growing up. :P

    3. I have no idea what other people would make of the shows we grew up watching over here in the UK!

    1. Thank you. If I ever got to produce content half as good as The Land Of Nod, I'd be delighted.

  3. What a feat! Time and effort well spent. I kinda missed out on your first few thousand, so I might have to start from the beginning...

    1. Cheers, mate!

      I wouldn't bother with the really old stuff, most of it is quite scrappy; I hadn't settled on a house style back then.

  4. Congratulations! How long have you been counting down to the big day?

    1. About a month ;-) It was Paul (commentator above) who asked me when I would be approaching that target, as I hadn't even given it much thought!
