I started this blog one year ago today, so I thought it would be a fine time to do a little self-inventory.
Firstly, some things I’m proud of. I’m generally kind of hard on my own work, but there are some things that gave me a certain sense of accomplishment.
A big part of why I started this blog was to share my Mega Mission cards with the English speaking world, and even though I have a lot more I want to do with them, the translation itself is up and I’m glad to have accomplished that much at least. Along those lines, the Rockman picture book, and a few other stories that I was happy to have uncovered.
My Chrono Trigger and Tatsunoko vs Capcom FAQs were pretty satisfying to write up, and I’m happy with the number of hits they’ve gotten on GameFAQs (which are way higher than this blog generally gets, actually).
Now, for some things I’m looking to improve on. Last month I really tried to kick myself into gear, but before that I had lost interest in blogging several times over the year, and I can’t help but feel set back, with all that lost time. Lately I’m trying to get myself into a regular routine with updates. But, I’m not always sure what’s best to focus on. I’d really like some reader input on this one.
You’ve probably noticed this site is mostly nostalgia-driven, focusing more on 90s Rockman goods rather than current or ongoing news. This is generally because I feel that other fan sites are already covering such news, more thoroughly and probably far better than I could myself. Even so, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t try to cover some more recent developments here in my blog. Or stuff from the last decade, at least. What do you guys think?
And as far as the stuff from the past goes, how do you guys think the new schedule is working out? Are the rare art posts interesting, or a waste of effort? Should I rather be devoting myself to finally getting those Mega Mission scans up (regardless of my scanner issues)? Do you find the random topic articles interesting, or would you prefer I focus more on larger translation projects?
And for that matter, what would you be most interested in reading about? I have old materials from other popular Capcom franchises also, things like Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Strider, Captain Commando, Disney and Marvel, etc. Would you guys be interested in more of a general Capcom fan-blog direction, or should I stay focused primarily on Rockman?
I’m interested in hearing thoughts other than my own. Comments, if you please!
