I’m typically not a numbers guy, but while numbers don’t tell the whole story, they can serve as a valuable indicator of how we’re doing. I want to take a minute from regular articles (three of which I should have for you shortly) to call out a milestone I've passed today.
200 posts, 673 comments, 1.9 million views. I feel I’ve come by them honestly. In all but a handful, I’ve kept my focus on ensuring that my readers take something of value away from them.
This blog has become more satisfying to me than I could have ever imagined. And I’m realistic enough to understand that the reason has only a part to do with myself. A lot of the time, I share my experiences, or my opinions about things happening in the game world. And both of those are at least equally influenced by others. Without combatants fighting me, I can’t write about the lessons I learn. Without CCP and players developing and adapting the gameworld, I can’t write about the effects I foresee and observe.
But, most importantly, without you, Target Caller has no value. Your comments and arguments keep me sharp, honest, and engaged with writing. They provide the passion that fills the pages. Agree or disagree, I’m thankful for the time you spend each day reading and commenting.
So I wanted to take a moment to share that milestone. It’s a milestone that belongs to everyone who ever posted a comment here, on reddit threads, or on EN24 posts. I read them all, and I appreciate them all.
