My WordPress Blog and Finishing projects

First up I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year or if you don’t happen to celebrate those Holidays just generally had a good break.

It’s been a year since I started my wordpress blog, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and what an up and down year it’s been personally. I have been very happy with how the blog has worked it, it has really motivated me to finish a lot of projects that I suspect in the past I wouldn’t have finished. I still get distracted and go of track but at least I can see what I did finish.

It has been a big year for drawing and paper miniatures for me, I feel my drawing has come along way from the very first paper miniature I assembled way back in 2009 and not just from a drawing view but also colouring and layout. I only managed to finish one 3d model this year and I still find those very time consuming to design and  finish, I’m going to try and do 2-3 in 2011, we’ll see how that go’s :).

I did not post every project I did or completed on my blog some just seemed to small to worry about or I couldn’t really talk about them for longer than 1 line and a picture, so I left them out.

The grand total for completed projects this year on my blog is about 37 additional to this I had about 10 smaller things that never made it to post stage.

If anyone else is thinking of using a blog to document there projects and their completion I  recommend a wordpress blog it’s not perfect but it’ll cover you for 90% of what you want to do. My personal wishlist for additions to  wordpress would be:

  • Add wiki functionality even if it’s paid
  • Allow more different file types even if it’s paid ie block the ones you don’t want don’t block everything and allow a few. My biggest issue is with GSD files.
  • Integrate some sort of project % bar tool, other blogs have it but I had to hack my own together and it’s very ugly behind the scenes.

That’s about it for what I wish my blog could do.

I never for a  moment thought other people would visit my blog and read what I’d been doing and download the stuff I make avaliable but for those curious I’ve gone from 37 visitors in Jan 2010 to 2300 visitors in Dec 2010, oddly it wasn’t a steady increase of visitors over time it sort of jumped around June.

So to all the people now visiting my blog a big hello and I apologise for the bad spelling and punctuation, I am working on improving those :).

If your still on holiday continue to have a good one and for those of us back at work, there are only 51 weeks left of this year so time to get rolling with the projects.

I hope to have some new paper miniatrues rolled out this month although there a little different style wise to anything I’ve done previously, back to the projects for me :).

    You’ve got better photography and step-by-step instructions than some large hobby sites. Keep it up!
