I'm very proud of what I've accomplished with my collection, but I'm more proud of what I've accomplished with the blog. At the start of the year, I averaged maybe 600 visitors a month, and thanks to my presence on Facebook, and my membership in a few groups there, I've managed to get up around 2,500 visitors a month. It's a mere pittance compared to the big guys, but I'm extremely pleased. I think that by posting an addition to the collection once a week, I've created some stability.
In the last quarter of this year, I got a little crazy and decided to try for a second posting each week. I'm enjoying these, even with the navel-gazing and I think I've almost found my groove as far as writing style goes. Look for those to continue until I get hit by a really bad case of writers block.
I've also discovered a few new blogs this year. There's the Angry Canadian Decepticon Blog, which is always a fun read, and then there's The Gassy Autobot, which is hilarious. If you haven't stopped by to check these out, I highly suggest that you do.
Anyway, that's enough of that. Let's take a look at my group shots for the year! If you notice anyone that hasn't had a review, don't worry, they're coming. Also, sorry for the bad shots. My new light tent and better lighting system will be here soon. I hope.

I'd like to thank everyone that has stopped by the to read the silly little posts that I do. I'd also like to thank those who have helped me along the way, whether they read the blog or not, and whether they know it or not. 2013 has been a great year, and I can only hope that 2014 is even better! See you next year!
