Site Status Information/New Project

Posted by paradisio on October 3, 2009

Before I start with the good news, I want to cover why I haven’t been posting much lately for what recurring viewership I have (going off the stats, I have some I assume). A while back I moved the site off my free wordpress (Sign of the Druid) to this privately hosted (and paid for site), mostly due to me wanting more control. I did put ads on the site (and still have some), not with the intention of making a revenue (although that would be nice) but perhaps just recouping hosting costs. I don’t want to name names, but I had my ads removed in a very upsetting turn of events that was not my own fault. Point being, I can no longer use the biggest Internet advertising network. Regardless, the event upset me quite a bit and my interest in this blog dropped substantially. Combined with my recent unemployment, I have been extremely distracted and have lost my focus, but I have finally gotten over it and I will begin posting regularly again.

I am going to try to devote at least an hour a day to the site from now on, which should hopefully mean I get a post up at least every other day.

Hitting on my frequent topics, I have picked up a few new RPGs recently, which I should have characters up for soon. As well, I have completed some video games which I will be able to review as well.

Biggest though, is a new RPG project for D&D 4e. I will be doing a fairly large conversion project based on the Nippon Ichi Disgaea series. I’m in the process of finalizing races at the moment, which should be up Monday or Tuesday. When completed I will have a write up of setting information, a bunch of races and classes (new and modified), and quite a few monster write ups. So look forward to more from me soon!

Site Status Update

Posted by paradisio on April 10, 2009

Hey everyone, appreciate everyone’s continued participation and visits. First, I want to apologize for the lack of content lately, I’ve been very busy. Mostly I’ve been playing games to review for the site, but thankfully Star Ocean 4 is finally pretty much completed (well at least as far as I’m going to go with it); I’m really doing my best to thoroughly play a game (as in a full play through) before I write a review so it can be as informative as possible. Unfortunately, to the detriment of the blog, I’ve had to play the game for quite a long period of time to finish it to my satisfaction (I’m at about 70 hours played). Regardless, information for that game should be coming shortly, including a strategy guide and a full review. Aside from Star Ocean, I’m planning on doing some more character creation challenges (Deadlands and something else), and some full book reviews. As well, I still have a huge stack of backlogged video games waiting.

As far as the other authors go, I have signed on one more person, although they won’t be posting much, and Krause should have a review for “Prinny: Can I really be the (or an) hero” in the next 24 hours or so. But after that he’ll be going out of town for a week on his honeymoon. Unfortunately, the other author has been unable to contribute much thus far; so it’s mostly on me for the time being.

I’m going to do my best to try to post at least one article a night from now on though, so hopefully this site will be getting much busier shortly.

We did run into a bit of a snag though, we had some trouble with one of the advertisers and had to remove them unfortunately. I hope the new ones aren’t intrusive and are appropriately targeted for your interests. Feel free to leave me any feedback on the subject. I’m not really trying to make a profit at all at the moment, just looking to recoup bandwidth costs and maybe purchase things to review. Related, I’ve been trying to increase visitors just to get the word out, and I would like to thank alphainventions and condron for helping me get the word out about this little nook. If you’re running your own site, you should definitely give them a shot. Our old site used to be linked to a bunch of places, and while I have sent e-mail to a few of them to upgrade their links, I’ve only gotten one confirmation so far. So, if you’re one of those sites, I would really appreciate you doing that for me.

That’s it for today, don’t hesitate to leave any feedback or comments.
