Monthly Archives: February 2013
The 2-year celebrations continue on! I was going to be posting this little sample earlier but some things came up and so I found myself super-busy. Anyways, here it is as promised, with a little bit of an intro to the project itself.
So today is the 2-year anniversary of the blog.
9 days ago I posted my second reading poll, for comics and graphic novels to read next month. The initial response to this was really weak, compared to my February reading poll which took off like a storm and ended with a huge boost in the last 2-3 days. But I’m really excited that the interest in the poll, and the voting as well, really picked up since Wednesday.
What’s really fantastic is that I’ve hit all the four stretch goals I was aiming for when I posted the poll. Thanks to everybody who voted and helped publicise the poll.
Yes, the current tally of votes stands at an even 450, which is really, really great.
Couldn’t have been done without you guys!
I am, of course, leaving the poll open till the 28th, as planned. I want to see how far I can get on this, and if the record for the February poll, 531 votes, can be broken or not.
So, given the success of my first such reading poll (details here and here) last month, I’m kicking off the next one, and this is for comics/graphic novels of all sorts. Getting back into the medium last year was fantastic and I read some truly great stuff. As always, there’s a lot of reading for me in the future, and to have some semblance of decisiveness about it, since I can never do that and just cherry pick stuff at random, I’m opening it up to all of you.
