August is drawing to a close and that means something to those of us in the floating citadel!
It is now just over two years ago that our humble corner of the Internet unveiled itself. I’d like to say we are a light among the cesspit of the Internet but let’s be honest, most of the visitors here are probably stumbling across us looking for pictures of naked sisters of battle!
Personally I am very happy with where 6 Inch Move has gone so far. We now have well over 110,000 views, something that still excites me in such a short space of time. We even have people who subscribe to what we write…
Really all I can do is to thank those people who stop by and give us their time, your patronage is humbling and drives us to keep writing stuff that we hope you want to read (no, we can’t do naked sisters of battle!).
I’d also like to thank all the others who pen articles for this blog, your views and opinions make this site the place that gets those views, so thank you to everyone involved with what we do.
It may be a little late, but it is with great pleasure that we here at 6 Inch Move can celebrate the first birthday of our blog. 6InchMove went live to the world on August 4th 2009, trying to carve out a niche talking about various aspects of the wargaming hobby and putting some people’s noses up while doing it.
We crept along for a while in the hinterlands of the Internet’s backwater bijou before Servitob thrust us into the limelight with his opinion that he enjoyed Firestorm Armada more than Full Thrust. Almost 500 views and several links later we saw our traffic climb and it has done so ever since.
Currently we are getting well over 200 hits a day on average and are closing in on 17,000 total hits to the site, an achievement that I am very proud of. I just wish that more of our viewers would offer comments on the topics we post. I am glad that we get some traffic though, it is nice to think that people are enjoying what we do here and getting some use out of it. Let’s hope that in the next 12 months we can carry on with what we have started and share our thoughts about the hobby to even more of you.
Thanks to you all not least of whom are my fellow authors who are what makes this place what it is.
