Happy 2014 and 2013 Year in Review
Another year is gone. I know things have been somewhat slow around here but if you look back at prior years the cycle is fairly normal. So let's see what happened in the blog in 2013.
Back in January we had what at this point have turned out to be our last EU book reviews. This is something I think at some point we'd like to bring back, but it had gotten a little overwhelming at first. I'll admit I was looking forward to having an excuse to read the New Jedi Order again and finding some good Han and Leia moments in there that I'd forgotten about.
Also early in the year we were pretty much challenge crazy. Valentines Day challenges, a few personal challenges and lots of mushy stories to go with them. Go back and read a few if you're missing new posts here :)
We celebrated the blog's second anniversary and spent lots of time speculating on what Episode VII will bring us. Whether or not the big three would be back, what time frame we'd be looking at. Amazingly, in the entire year, we pretty much know nothing more than we did before. That's somewhat alarming.
We had the now infamous "Speedo Challenge" which actually brought more challenge responses than I think we've ever had. I wish you people jumped up to your keyboards that fast for all of our challenges and not just the one involving a scantly clad Harrison Ford.
We finished (maybe. I'm still not sure) another joint story. We talked a whole lot about sex. We had a bunch of other story challenges and our biggest traffic month ever just six short months ago, which seems crazy considering how little we've been posting lately. Return of the Jedi turned 30.
Things slowed down here once again, although we did at least get a release date announcement for Episode VII. Now if only someone would tell us what it's actually going to be about.
I realize that most of the excitement around here came in the first half of the year but thank you all for sticking around with us. Thank you for answering the challenges when we post them, and for commenting and generating discussion. It's always fun to hear that other people contemplate all of these silly things.
And I hope that your personal 2013 was a good one, though even if it was I hope you have an even better 2014!
