This website has just passed the one-year mark, and I just wanted to write a post to celebrate the past year..and what a year!
I have been absolutely blow away by the support and interaction with readers and contributors! I wanted to share a few of the milestones with you all, as I try to stay as transparent as possible:
In the first year, the website has seen:
- 114 published posts (more than 66,000 words!)
- 62 contributors
- nearly 15,000 visitors
- over 20,000 views
- almost a comment per post on average
- more than one ‘like’ per post on average
- a nomination for the Tolkien Society Awards 2019
None of these things would have been possible without the support and contributions of readers and fans. I rely on readers and contributors much more than a typical blog because of the design and aim of the Tolkien Experience Project! So I thank each and every one of you for your support in making this website a success! Keep spreading the word and we can make the Tolkien Experience Project an excellent repository for fan experience!
I also wanted to share with you that the URL tolkienexperience.com now forwards to my website! So feel free to share that with friends if it is easier to remember!
