“We heard it’s your birthday! Well it’s our birthday too!” We here at DFAT are celebrating our One-Month Anniversary and want to give a BIG THANKS to everyone whose helped us along the way! I started this blog because friends said they appreciated my movie reviews and geek tidbits that I would post on FaceBook and Twitter. So, I gots to thinking, “why don’t I just do this LEGIT?” But, I’m not one to do anything just LEGIT, I had to do it like my boy Hammer and get 2 LEGIT! And here we are. I asked CynicNerd to help me as co-editor and comics/toy contributor, and my main-man up north in Canada, “The Ox” to help with the video game side of things. One month in, and things are going really fantastic! Since I think that no one becomes succesful without its people, I wanted to share some site stats with everyone to show you where we’ve come from with YOUR HELP.
- Our first day we posted 4 articles and had 33 views.
- Today we’ve had over 3,400 views and had our busiest day on August 29th, 2012.
- We have reached 67 countries and 45 States
It might not seem like all that much at now, but we’re pretty proud of how far a couple of geeks have gotten just for their love of pop-culture, comics, movies, toys, and video games. We hope you continue to come to the site; and feel free to give us input on articles you’d like to see, changes to the site we could use (we’re open to suggestions!!), or just to say Hi.
There’s a lot of things to see out there, and we’d like to share them with you, and if you don’t remember your towel, we have one for ya.
It’s been a pleasure collaborating this month, making new friends, and writing my brains out! Here’s to many more!
Chaz, You always seem to be in search of what you “want to be when you grow old” (notice I said old – not when you grow up). The more I read of your off the cuff wit, I think you are slowly seeing in black & white (and orange) your true calling. I would recommend that you continue your love “putting IT out there”, taking your ever growing audience to new heights and enjoy life as much as you can. You definitely would have made your grandmother proud! I also realize that reality bites, and this doesn’t pay the bills (yet), so best of luck on your new job. Consider taking some creative writing courses or something that you can use to turn your passion into a paying postion. To the buds that are helping, you both rock too!!
Thanks Betsy, that means a lot! I appreciate the support and will take your advice. Maybe one day we can all live off this, but it’s really just giving me the freedom to be creative and have a lot of fun talking about things that I talk about all the time anyway. Now, I’m just talking about them with more people. We do have some things coming up to include some advertising and gaining even more of an audience, thank you for being there for us. Means a lot!!
