Greetings loyal readers! We're a couple days into 2014 and I figured, after reviewing readership statistics over the past few years that I think I'm in need of some advice from YOU. Essentially, Tactical Tag had a gradual climb in pageviews from the time we started (April of 2011) until February of 2012. You'll recall, that month, that I covered the Pyragon sighting at the Toy Fair. Things kind of exploded after that, but since that time, the average has stuck around 26k-27k pageviews per month.
I've had a lot of changes in my life since starting the blog. New Car, new Job, getting engaged (and soon to be married), getting a house, I've certainly gotten more busy over the past few years. However, things keep chugging along here at the blog. In that time, we've seen a lot of blogs and contributors to the community come and go, but I've manged (or at least tried) to stay consistent and keep at it.
While I do attempt to report the news (which seems to get the most attention if you're "First"), Tactical Tag has always focused on what projects are on the workbench for me and the events I've attended. Sometimes there's more of a Nerf Focus, sometimes there's more of a Laser Tag focus. It really just depends on what I'm up to. However, with the seemingly flatlined performance, I wondered if there was either more I could do to better serve the community or if I should face the fact that this is where the blog will be without much further growth to be expected. I'm really okay with either, but I figured I'd ask YOU, since reader input has always been important to me and a major driving force to this blog.
