Well, it’s been a crazy year, filled with all sorts of things. The last few months in particular have been pretty hectic. Anyway, before I continue, I think I’ll post this helpful little thing-a-ma-jigger than WordPress sent me that shows my stats over this past year.
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2010. That’s about 11 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 33 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 9 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 1mb. That’s about a picture per month.
The busiest day of the year was December 12th with 395 views. The most popular post that day was More seeker stuff.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were tvtropes.org, slenderia.blogspot.com, forums.unfiction.com, blogger.com, and slendereview.blogspot.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for slender man, marble hornets, the slender man myth, the slender man, and marble hornets jessica.

And that’s evidently my blog stats. Kinda dumb and silly, but hey, worth posting, maybe.
I want to start by giving an overview of what I have lined up for the blog in this next year. First of all, there’s supposed to be a new Marble Hornets tomorrow, so I’ll do a review of that again. I’m also going to be working on “The Twelve Days of Solstice” again, now that my family isn’t around to look at me funny. I’ll be doing it a bit differently than I had planned, too. I hope I can get that finished fairly quickly.
I’m also going to be working on a Slender Man based story. It’s currently untitled, and right now, I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it’s going to follow the Hero’s Journey method of storytelling. For obvious reasons, of course.
Fairly soon, I’m going to be working on providing more helpful information. I’ve given pretty much all the facts now, but my goal is to make this blog a one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about the mythos. It’s going to result in more header tabs. First of all, I’d like to make it a bit more organized and user-friendly (I think I prefer WordPress to Blogspot, although I don’t like how there aren’t those drop-down tabs for easy post acces), so I’ll be providing a tab with quick, easy links to the stuff that’s important. I’m also going to be providing a glossary of terms for readers (explaining terms like “Core Theory,” “TPF,” and “Hallowed”), and providing an FAQ section. I really don’t really get many questions, so if you have a FQ to A, I’ll be more than happy to keep them in mind. Just send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, I’m probably going to be working on showing you what I had planned for the series, and then maybe actually going to the trouble of making it so that you can see what it would have looked like.
Oh, also, it’s possible that I’ll just change the blog’s actual name from “The Slenderblog” to “Slenderbloggins,” just because more people seem to know it as that anyway. Much less boring than “The Slenderblog” anyway.
Well. Information, exaggerated paranoia, faked insanity, gamejackers, gamejackers gamejacking gamejackers, German children’s books, and most importantly, Broeckchen and all her crazy theories. All that, just on my blog, and all in less than four months. I wonder what an entire year is going to hold. Let’s see together, shall we?
