Wouldn’t you know it? As of yesterday, on May the 4th of all days, I discovered that my hits tracker had just broken 15,000 views. I could scarcely believe it! This little blog which I started just over a year ago to publicize my thoughts on sci-fi and share my writing seems to be reaching far more people than I ever thought possible. Yes, what stated as a humble hobby to one day be able to write for a living seems one step closer to becoming true. I’m feeling happy, grateful, and a little smug… I’d like to chase that feeling!
So here’s what I’m thinking. Over the next few days I totally want to complete my reviews of the Star Wars franchise in honor of the Star Wars Day. And this will include the newer movies since someone was kind enough to ask me what I thought about them (thus enabling me to talk some more!) After that, I will be finishing up with my posts on Data Miners, which I’ve decided I will stop after chapter 12. First ten percent is free, you gotta follow the links to get the rest 😉 And of course, I will be getting back to what’s become a segment-in-itself, the Cool Ships thing. And of course there’s Crashland and all our work over at Grim5next to talk about, plus that review of Hunger Games I promised way back when. Gotta get on that before the movie’s finished!
So that’s my plan for the next few weeks and months, part of my hope to maintain this momentum and the lovely following I seem to have built up. Thanks be to all of you for making this little hobby of mine work. Now if I could just make it pay, I’d really be in business 😉 Good day all!

Congratulations! I haven’t had time to keep up with all of your posts, but read what I can and save the rest for later. I really enjoy your thinking, familiarity with the genre, and ability to articulate it all so well. Looking forward to more,
All that creative flow will exploded your head with short stories, novels and blog postings. Hope you have big enough net to catch it all.
Congratulations on the 15,000 hits.
Wow, couldn’t have said it better myself. Mind if I quote you on that?
I would be honored.
congratulations! let’s hope you get 15,000 more someday.
Congratulation!!! 150,000 will come sooner than you think. More power…. Nonoy Manga
Hey! Congrats on the 15K hits Matt! Excellent achievement. 🙂
Now I can proudly get around saying a guy with 15K hits on his blog is following my blog. Haha! But seriously, of us only you have the right to be proud. Cheers! 😉
Congrats on the milestone! That’s a big one. I hope you celebrated. 🙂
You know, I don’t think I did… Vodka, four shooters! You want anything?
I often wonder how much research time you put into it. It always looks like a lot of time and effort really went into getting all the background info on your topics.
Depends. If it’s a franchise I’m intimately familiar with, like Star Wars, then not much research is needed. Others I might have to read up on, and I often do just in case. Research is kinda my thing 😉
