Five years ago this Thursday, I wrote my first article for this site.
As of this writing, there are 472 articles published on this site.

We have had over 135,000 people visit the site, for over 180,000 page views.
Our single most popular day, two years in a row, has been Star Wars Day, May the Fourth! This Star Wars Day broke last Star Wars Day’s record, which is actually really funny to me.

Last year, because of Covid, we had to stop our podcasts, but instead we started a Twitch channel, in which my wife Chanel plays a lot of games, but her focus is definitely on speedrunning the Spyro remake trilogy.
Also, we used to be based out of Salt Lake City, which is why we covered a lot of Utah/Idaho conventions, but now that we live outside of Orlando, Florida, we have articles about visiting the huge theme parks here.
We’re not sure what’s next, because this pandemic just doesn’t seem to want to end. The goal is that once it does, I’m going to start checking out all of the cool conventions here in Florida, like MegaCon and SuperCon (no relation). Also, have you heard about the new Star Wars Hotel, because I have…
