Hey. There’s not too much happening this week, apart from Twitter melting down about a Fortnite player advocating for parents to take responsibility for the behaviour of their children (yes, this is a controversial statement in the bizarro-world that is Twitter-dot-com), and a bunch of shitposters are brutally murdering a multi-billion dollar hedge fund in real-time as we speak. Here’s some smaller things I feel that are worth mentioning:
“<insert name here> liked your article!”
So I’ve noticed that this blog has been getting a few views and followers this week. As it turns out, actually interacting with other blogs in your sphere can actually drive activity– who would have thought? As of this writing, my follower count is sitting at nine, which is about nine more followers than I ever intended to have.
Seriously though, if you’ve clicked that follow button, thank you. If you’ve clicked that like button, thank you. If you’ve left a comment, thank you. It’s pretty neat to see that my writing is connecting positively with others in some way, even if said way is relatively small. You’re welcome to stick around as long as you like. It certainly beats bathing in the caustic acid pits of a certain massive social media platform…
Re. Battle Sisters
I don’t think it’s out of the question that most of my newfound audience is likely to be fellow Warhammer 40k fans. Most of my interactions in the last week have been Warhammer-related blogs, so it’d make sense. A disproportionate amount of article views have gone to last week’s article about me assembling a Battle Sisters model kit, so I think an update is in order.
Before that, a quick warning: even though I like 40k and I absolutely adore Sisters of Battle, this is technically a variety blog. Updates like these might be few and far between.
I’ve placed orders for some painting supplies and I’m glad to say that some of them are delivered! Namely, a few cheap brushes, a ceramic palette, and some brush soap:
I’ve got some Citadel paints and a handle on the way as well, which should arrive within the next month. Of course, I forgot to buy varnish and basing materials too, so things are probably going to take much longer than you might expect. I blame GW. Fortunately, this should all be less painful on my second project. I’ve got my eyes on buying some Seraphim and maybe some Penitent Engines…
I’ve also been hard at work writing some good ol’ fluff for my custom Order. I’m planning to publish it all as its own page on this blog, so if you’re interested in that kind of thing, I encourage you to stick around. Here’s a small preview of what I’m doing:
In other news…
Dunno. I started playing Final Fantasy XIV again, after I arguably hit it way too hard just a few months ago. It’s a pretty good MMORPG, though if you’re looking to interact with a “living, breathing” game world you might want to look at World of Warcraft or Star Wars: The Old Republic. Or you can play EVE if you’re a psychopath. I’ve considered doing game reviews on this blog, but I don’t really have any concrete ideas for articles at the moment. Oh well.
So… yeah. That’s the update. As always: thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next time.
