Otaku Orbit – 2020 year in review

As the terrible 2020 comes to a close, I’m happy to write my annual year in review. Having re-read my 2019 blog post, I am ashamed to say that I’ve accomplished almost nothing I intended. I haven’t even started writing that book, failed to comment more, haven’t written more essays, reviewing classic anime, manga vols., or comic books. I reviewed more movies, and completed more anime seasons, but I could do better. After changing my permalinks last year and costing myself monthly viewers, I have recovered well and increased viewership. The last three months have surpassed 10,000 views. Hopefully that trend continues. Overall, this blog will reach just under 100,000 views (97,000). So despite my failures, I have made progress elsewhere.

  7. […] Last year I failed to accomplish everything I set out to do for this blog. This year wasn’t much different. 😞 Oh, well. I’ll keep trying. Anyway, 2021 save my blog reach two big milestones. First, I posted my 1,000th post. 🎉 Second, I just missed 200,000 views in 2021 (I just missed 100,000 in 2020) so progress. I’ve decided in 2022, I will summarize the plot/episode and then give my opinion when reviewing. My goal is to give more of my view instead of just recapping the episode.
