Each year at around this time I spend $100 on the blog. I renew WordPress updates that allow me to somewhat customise the blog layout and I stop ads from being shown. I also renew the evehermit.com domain.
Before opening my wallet I always take the opportunity to reflect on what value for money I am getting. Is the blog achieving its goals? Is it still encouraging me to explore the game, contemplate its many changes, and give a quiet voice to the risk adverse, time poor solo player? As it is still accomplishing that, I handed over my cash again.
A handful of stats I looked up for my own interest – I’ve been writing the blog for a bit over four and a half years now, with this being my 691st post. Through that time I’ve uploaded approximately 475 EVE related screen captures. Funny what can be accomplished one small step at a time.
Thank you to the old and new readers. Through your comments, links and occasional EVE Mails, you have given me a sense of being a small part of the greater EVE community.
