I have never posted about Livingdice’s traffic before because no one really cares but me. That said, I reached a threshold I had as a personal goal for the past couple of years and just felt the urge to share my joy: 10,000 unique visitors this month! It only took a mere three years and 700 posts. ;-)
As website traffic goes, 10,000 is a very small number compared to other sites on the Internet. Still, it is a good number for a relatively small niche like tabletop gaming. On a personal note, I started this site with the express purpose of not focusing entirely on the few largest games in the industry, “Dungeons and Dragons” in particular. I could easily double my traffic by simply focusing on 4E to the exclusion of all else. This is not a slight against WOTC or their products, just a belief that D&D is a tabletop game, not the tabletop game. There are so many more great games out there that fade into the shadow of a few giant companies, both in board games and RPGs. I hope to shine a bit of light on these gems when I can.
I want to take this opportunity to thank my co-blogger Stuart for all of his help and all the other contributors that kindly added their own thoughts and opinions to the site. And of course, everyone that drops by to read our scribblings deserves our heartfelt thanks as well.
Going forward, Livingdice is looking into creating some original game content, possibly for publication. This is still in the early stages, but we have some ideas…
Check back with Livingdice.com again soon. We are just getting started!
