As 2018 finally winds down, I would like to take this time to plan for what myself and viewers want for this website. I started all of this in October 2015 approximately 15 months after suffering a serious back and neck injury that has left me unable to work. While continuing to struggle through variuos therapies, this website and community has helped hold my life together by being able to escape reality and become someone else. For that I thank each and every one of you who have had a positive impact on my life.
As a whole, Puzzle and Dragons NA is making a comeback as seen from the increased volume of content being released and exceptionally generous rewards. This makes me inclined to believe that PAD is still going strong and my hopes is that the gap between NA and JP timings can be shortened.
While I do have my own plans for my website, I want to hear your feedback as to what you want to see published and have several ideas planned.
At this point in time, I am mostly focusing on Collab and Godfest reviews as those tend to be the most popular and seem to resonate best with players. In addition to this, I will continue to try and create First Impression videos on my YouTube Channel for newly released content in JP and re-share it on my website for easier access/summaries.
My most viewed post of all time is still the Popular Leaders and Their Full Sub List with 147k+ views but that format is sadly outdated and was also during the higher point of viewer traffic. I have wanted to revive this type of guide and believe I have found modest success through the recent Team Building in 2018 which explains a leader’s strengths and weaknesses and how to approach team building with all the new tools at our disposal. I have been currently working on a more detailed and expanded article following this format which I hope will be ready in early 2019. Generally speaking, if it takes you a minute to read something, it takes over and hour to produce.
In the past, I have done a Question Time with Mantastic article in which readers are able to ask PAD-related questions that cannot be answered with a simple Google search and are often highly specific or team building related for specific situations along with where I feel the meta will shift etc. With that being said, I plan to resume the Question Time posts starting in January following a similar template as before.
In addition to this, I would like to do a monthly article that is based on community feedback. In essence, I will make a separate post detailing the criteria and comments left will help guide and shape the monthly article. The voting period will take place for about a week at the beginning of the month and the writing will occur during the remainder of the month.
WordPress allows me to see a detailed breakdown of readership stats and thought it would be fun to share them.
In total, there has been 2,176,231 views from January to December. My most viewed day of all time surprisingly came on October 31, 2018 with 33,383 views due to the 10-Stone Voice Godfest and 100 free Magic Stones.
Finally, a big shout out to my most interactive readers!
2018 has been an exciting year for Puzzle and Dragons and my website. I wish to continue making meaningful content moving forward into 2019 with the help of your input as to what you wish to see.
Happy Puzzling and New Year!
