From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
A message from WordPress popped up on my last weekend, informing me I was now at 1,000 posts for this blog. The milestone took my be surprise, as the last time I happened to check the post count was a little over 700.
Time flies I suppose, and with the blog now in its seventh year I took a look at the most popular posts over that time. I can only judge by views, however. In spite of recently commenting how I felt likes and comments were better measures, these aren’t tracked in any meaningful way via the WordPress dashboard. I can view all my posts in descending order of views, but there’s no comparable data for likes or comments, which is a shame.
The three most popular articles published are:
Good box, bad box, published in 2014, which looked at the vexed question of board game box design.
Nurgle Fortress at Warhammer World, a pictorial view of an impressive diorama, published in 2017.
Classic dioramas at Warhammer World, part of the same series as the Nurgle fortress, also published in 2017. These were some of my favourites too.
Those are the three most popular, measured only by views.
However my three favourite articles are:
One Thousand, Two Hundred and Seventy-Four. Published in 2016, this article photographed all my painted miniatures, and is very much at the core of what this blog is about.
Warhammer 40,000 chaos warband name generator. I had fun coming up with these one afternoon, and in fact this article receives a steady stream of hits, presumably from Google searches.
5 simple rules for selling your Magic: the Gathering collection. Another one from 2014, this was the first long article I wrote because I wanted to create something helpful and useful for other people. It addressed a lot of the common mistakes I see people make when trying to sell off their cards, but in a more positive way.
I’ll continue posting to my current schedule of 2-4 posts each week-end. Expect many more favourites to come!
