HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!
And good riddance to hot garbage, I say. This year was a trying time for all of us and it is my sincere hope that my articles might have done something to provide entertainment or education for my readership.
As we enter 2021 with, hopefully, brighter expectations than 2020, I would like to take a quick analytical look-back on 2020 in terms of my articles and viewership. Though this year was far from ordinary, perhaps there remains things that I can improve upon and aid in making 2021 a better year than the shit-show we were given in 2020.
In 2020, I wrote a total of 40 articles over 52 weeks (accounting for the summer and December vacations, as well as the occasional missed week for sickness or delay). I started the year with my article on the then recently released Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. That article has over the course of the year received (as of the 1st of January, 2021) 97 views. As of writing this article, my 2020 articles have received 2191 views in total, with an average view per article of 55. My total views for all articles since my very first in 2019 is 5950 views, with the average now rising to 89 views per article.
Due in no small part to the COVID-19 pandemic and other personal issues, Emerald Rangers wasn't able to engage in the level of marketing and brand expansion that I had hoped this year, but these numbers remain quite good all things considered.
Of the 40 articles I wrote in 2020:
- 18 were film reviews (Including both animated and live-action),
- 5 were reviews of television shows or anime,
- 4 were book recommendations,
- 4 were general editorials
- 5 were countdown articles, and;
- 3 were the newly created Let's Talk... editorials.
