2017 is behind us! It was a good year for gaming and a great year for my blog. And that brings me to some news about my blog moving forward this year. I am leaving WordPress and moving on to bigger and better things.
I’ve been thinking about leaving WordPress for a few years now. I want more freedom with my blog and the recent article that I worked on with NekoJonez made me make my decision faster than I would have on my own. WordPress made it clear to me that they don’t care about the content that other people have stolen/will steal in the future from me and other writers. I’m paying them for my domain name and I was even planning on upgrading my membership with them so I would have more space on my blog, but I’ve changed my mind on that. I’m leaving WordPress and will be looking for a new host for my content in the near future. That’s enough about that, for now, it’s time for some good news.
In 2017 I completed 40 games and reviewed 32 of them. I tried, and failed, to watch more movies/TV this year and tried, and failed, to write more about things that aren’t gaming. Can’t win them all I guess. I wrote 203 posts in 2017 and it was the best year I’ve ever had on my blog in all categories.
Fancy stats aren’t everything. I really appreciate everyone that takes time out of their day to read what I post here. I appreciate every comment, like, shout out, and friends I got to make while doing this. I’m part of a great group of writers on Facebook and I love scrolling down the reader to see what everyone else is doing to their amazing blogs. I was part of an awesome podcast with CheapBossAttack and Chuck from Counter Attack Games!
My most popular post, which should come as no surprise by now, is my Skyrim mods articles. Here are my top 10 posts of 2017

Instead of writing it all just look at the screen capture…
Some notable post that I read this year are
Lightning Ellen did a fantastic write up of her playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins. Origins is one of the best games I’ve ever played and I really enjoyed reading through her experiences. She’s currently playing Inquisition and just did a year in review of her own blog too.
I always enjoy my regular visits to CheapBossAttack’s weekly series of It’s The Freakin’ Weekend! I enjoy reading the comments to see what everyone is playing on the weekends and I love sharing what I’m doing too. It’s a conversation between writers and it’s fun. If you haven’t checked him out yet you should. He’s a great writer and awesome guy to talk to.
NekoJonez has had a rough few days trying to have his stolen post removed from other sites. He’s a great dude that I’ve had the pleasure of talking to, almost every day now, on Facebook about various topics. He’s awesome and I enjoy my frequent visits to his blog and reading about some of the neat games that he’s playing.
I Played The Game is a great blog to visit for some laid back gaming articles from a guy, like myself, who has kids and doesn’t have a ton of time to game but makes every free second count. His post is always great and I really enjoyed his Xcom War Logs series that he had going on.
The Shameful Narcissist is a great writer and lover of all things retro. She knows more about Final Fantasy than anyone I know, and just wrote her top 10 games of 2017 that didn’t really release in 2017 :). It’s a neat list and anything with the Mass Effect Trilogy in it is going to get some love from me. I seriously need to play Soma. Everyone tells me how great it is, but I keep ignoring it. Maybe one day…
I’m so sorry if I didn’t mention you above. I would be up writing all night if I wrote about everyone that I love to follow. I love you all
I’m really looking forward to what 2018 has in store for me and this blog that I love so much. I plan on trying to come up with some new series to write about. I’ve already come up with two neat ones. I have an ongoing Adventures of series that is focused on Skyrim right now and a new Modding Showcase series… that’s also focused on Skyrim. I plan on branching out both series into other games and seeing where it goes.
Thank you all for reading and have a great 2018!
