I’ve been continuing to grow my involvement in analysis and reporting of professional League of Legends, both through my stats tracking on OraclesElixir.com and written articles at GoldPer10.com.
I’ve hit some pretty cool milestones along the way, like:
There are ups and downs along the way, but I’m having a lot of fun and doing some cool things. I’m looking forward to whatever comes next!
I made these a while ago while doing PlayDoh with Calvin. I think they’re pretty good. I’m kind of a PlayDoh prodigy.
I’m a man of many hobbies, and lately I’ve been having some success writing about competitive League of Legends and reporting on pro player statistics.
I set up a blog called Oracle’s Elixir, a reference to an old item from the game, and I’ve been using it to share various stats that I’ve tracked and calculated for the North American League Championship Series. I’ve also written several long-form articles and posted them to other sites, including a self-publishing eSports platform called Goldper10.
So far my five best articles have totaled over 165,000 page views combined.
I’m having a lot of fun with this, and I want to start covering Europe next season as well, so we’ll how long the momentum keeps rolling!
I finished The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck recently and added it to Tier 2 of my Best Novels list, “Incredible Masterpieces”.
Like always, Steinbeck has crafted incredible characters and woven a story around them that makes their character exploration incredibly natural. He is the absolute epitomy of “show, don’t tell”.
That puts three Steinbeck novels in my first two tiers.
Man do I love Steinbeck.
I like stats. Here are some from 50WS in 2014.
Unique Visitors: 56,000+
Pages per Visit: 2.21
Time per Visit: 2:19
There were slightly fewer unique visitors than 2013, but more pageviews, more pages per visit, and longer average visits.
This tells me that there are more returning/regular readers now, which is great, and is more important than getting lots of brand new, one-time visitors.
Here’s to more growth in 2015!
I got really excited last night because our last tenants left behind a little bookshelf that somewhat matches the ones I already had in my office.
I’m not sure what that says about me.
My plan for 2015 is to:
passive entertainment, valueless information
special moments, personal projects
Happy New Year!
