It’s been an interesting year here at PGPoA. On the one hand, my new, busier job has made it harder to keep up with this site. On the other hand, in a lot of ways the site took off this year, with a major spike in daily traffic, guest appearances on podcasts, and brand-new exclusive toys, not to mention adding Bastards of the Universe to the rotation.
I’m not sure what 2011 will bring. One thing I have decided is that I’m going to post on weekends–it’s just too difficult to keep it to just weekdays, since I often have little time to write during the week. Whether this will make any difference, good or bad, for my traffic remains to be seen.
I’d also like to branch out a bit and write some more articles that, while toy-related, aren’t just news and reviews. But I make that resolution every year, so we’ll see how it goes.
As for the immediate future, I have a huge pile of toys that need reviewing, from the 12″ Christopher Reeves Superman, to King Grayskull and Peter Venkman, to the Outer Space Men, to the Alien vs. Predator 2-pack and m0re. Please bug me about it because otherwise I may never get them done.
Speaking of the New Year, I think we should take a moment to congratulate Novelty for completing his Toy-A-Day blog for 2010. That’s 365 toys! You can read a post summing up the year here. And he’s moved right on to 2011.
In closing, I’ll leave you with my favorite New Year-related tweet from New Year’s Eve, courtesy of @oafe: “Someone outside has a vuvuzela. I wish you a terrible year, mystery person.”
