Blogiversary = Blog + Anniversary

One Year

Where did that time go?!

Hey all; new and old!

Can you believe it, Mechanicalpen has been up and running for a full year?! I barely can. It feels like just the other day I finally bit the bullet and started blogging. Over the past 12 months, my blog format has changed a little bit (I used to review games if you scroll back far enough, that does feel like a while ago), but art has always been this blog’s underlying feature.

Another constant through the course of this year has been my appreciation for all of you. I can’t thank you all enough for your comments, likes and even the time you take to just stop past and have a look at my work. I’ve shouted into the void and you have been there to respond (and make me feel less crazy for talking to myself).

If you can remember when you first discovered my blog or if you have a favourite post of mine in particular, you should totally let me know in the comments as I’d love to hear!

And for those who are stat inclined, this is a snap shot of the year I’ve had:

  • 93 published blog posts
  • 4588 views
  • 2008 visitors
  • 399 followers (so close to 400!)
  • Top 3 countries for views: United States, Australia, United Kingdom

Here’s to another year filled with drawings!
