Project Saber’s First Birthday

Last week (6/3/2010) marked the first birthday for Project Saber, but I was unable to make a post due to being on vacation.

Now that I’m back, let’s take a closer look at the past year of this blog.

Besides the original intent expressed in my very first post, my goal was to simply play around with WordPress. There were many times when I was tempted to shut down this blog, but I decided to persist and keep going on.

I consider my main accomplishments to be maintaining and constantly improving Project Saber and also co-founding Figure Haven – a place where anime enthusiasts can purchase top tier figures at the best prices. I don’t believe in carrying subpar figures of questionable quality and hate it when vendors price gouge.

Now let’s move along to site statistics. I never really posted any stats before, but here they are for those that are curious.

My thanks goes to all the readers out there since without readers, the motivation to post goes down for me. The referrers have my gratitude as well because without them, less people would know about this blog.

I plan to keep Project Saber going as long as possible, but my activity on the blogosphere might decrease once I get a job now that I’m out of college. However, everyone on my blogroll can rest assured that I will still continue to read all their posts.

Looking back, my knowledge of both the WordPress platform and anime related things has vastly improved. I was also able to meet members of the anime community and fellow bloggers. It was fun interacting with you all and I look forward to another great year!
