8 Years of Blogging

WordPress kindly informed me that I have been with them for 8 years now. Prior to this I was hosted on Blogger, but I found that the interface, options and community didn’t really have what I was looking for, so I moved over to WordPress – it feels far superior.

Initially my blog was really just a place to ‘dump’ my thoughts and some of my early posts are pretty cringe-worthy, but they were a document of my Fangirling ways and a means for me to talk about them in my own private place. I’ve gone through various names for my blog, a lot of the names have been some variation of ‘Fangirl,’ and for a fair while it was TragicFangirl. I think last year, I changed things up when the blog got a bit more focused on the Warhammer Hobby to Inquisitor Jenn – which it shall remain as.

It was clearly in 2017/18 that I started posting a bit more regularly and found a focus for the blog and became more involved in the wider Warhammer community and used the blog to showcase my hobby adventures, as well as my artwork.

I think it was late 2919/2020 when I also added in Book Reviews and although I’ve tried running different blogs for different topics and stuffs, I always end up returning to the same space, so that’s the way it is now.

In the grand scheme of things, I don’t get much in the ways of traffic, roughly 1000 a month and that will probably take a hit now that I am no longer on Twitter; but it’s something that has (more or less) grown steadily over the years I have been here. Considering I have no plans on changing things up in terms of domain name or hosting, I’m hoping the consistency will help.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve met some great bloggers and wanted to give a special shout out to Dave at Wordaholic Anonymous, for keeping me going with the Horus Heresy series read through, as I’d not have made it this far without him!

I’d also like to give a shout out to Heretic Deb and Lord Commander Eloth, for joining me on this crazy blogging adventure. And of course, a big thank you to everyone that reads my ramblings regularly and takes the time to comment, you really do make this whole blogging thing worth it!

So the general consensus is, onwards and upwards! More of the same. More models, more books, more blogging and more years of some writing and keeping myself (and hopefully others) entertained.
