This, to me at least, is where the numbered rants hit their stride.
As we neared the one hundredth day, I figured out what it was that I wanted to talk about and how I wanted to go about it. There were still a good many issues to work out, such as the length of each post and the extreme sporadic nature of the topics. (which I haven’t really fixed to this day, but I will soon). But it was here, on the one hundred and ninth day, that I started one of my favorite mini-series, as well as the first that brought me together with some of my online friends.
One day, when desperately searching for a subject to talk about that day, I gazed for far too long at my tiny movie collection. There, I saw one of my favorite movies (which would later become my absolute favorite) and I realized something: I’ve never talked about it. Nor have I talked about any other entry in that series.
This was the first post I wrote before moving over to the new site (which we’ll get to in a bit) that had any sort of feedback from it’s readers. It introduced me to several of my online friends, whom I still keep in touch with to this day. It garnered more attention than I could have imagined.
Thus, I decided to make a little series out of it. I watched through the entire Godzilla series and gave my piece on each one. It was a ton of fun, and it was the first time the numbered rants had that kind of focus. One that would later return for the MCU-Thon.
But we’ll get to that.
It was also around this time that I decided to bring this blog to the next level. Thus, I left Blogger behind and created our current platform via WordPress. After a hundred days, it came time for a fresh new start.
Moving to the new site was the best decision I’ve ever made. The new site has been easier to use, nicer to look at, and it’s opened a series of doors that I couldn’t have opened on the old site. I’ve discovered a slew of new blogs that I love to read, many of which have influenced how I write my own.
Still, for all the evolving that happened in this time, we are still far from the peak. This was the first step in the right direction.
But it was the next step that I feel I finally learned how to run.
