4 Years of This Silly Blog!

Hello there, ladies, gentlemen, and space aliens. As you may have gathered from the title of this post and the text in the image, this blog is now four years old. That’s right, on January 27th 2014 I registered this blog and published my first post (which is kind of shit). To be honest with you guys, I honestly never thought I’d last this long as a blogger. Not because I thought competition would kick my ass out, but because I was very anti-blog for quite a while. But then I made an attempt at starting a blog for the hell of it. Then over time I learned to have fun with it. Sure, there were times where I just weren’t feeling it, and considered quitting it all. But I powered through, and these days I never feel that “ugh” feeling when it comes to blogging. Sure, there are times where I don’t really wanna post, either due to laziness or a headache or something like that, but I never feel like I want to quit.

And while we’re at it, I should also announce that I finally reached 300 followers on here earlier this month! I did consider making a post about that when it happened, but I thought about it and came to the conclusion that it would be better to wait and then include that announcement in this post. So yeah… a huge THANK YOU to every- hold on, that’s not right. Gimme a second…

THANK YOU ALL!!!

But seriously, thank you so much to everyone that has decided to follow this silly blog of mine, you have no idea how much it means. And an extra thank you to the ones who regularly interact with me on here, whether it is through a simple like or a thoughtful/lovely/entertaining comment, any kind of interaction helps in keeping this blog alive. And a lot of the interactions I’ve had have led to me making a bunch of new friends that I still interact with, either on here or on twitter/instagram. Meeting people like that to discuss all kinds of stuff with has really helped fuel my passion for this and it’s what keeps me going… at least in terms of the blogging and such. In real life the coffee is what keeps me going… but you guys do help me out in a way.

I guess since we’re having this double-celebration (with cream and sugar), I should do something special (other than this post). Not sure what that’d be, but we should make something in honor of this thing. So maybe leave some feedback on what you’d like to see from me in the future. More reviews? More lists? More music posts? More other things? Seriously, tell me what you’d like to see from me in the future, whether it’d be more, less, or same of various thing. Any and all feedback is welcomed. I’m all ears.

So yeah… that’s about it. Once again, huge thanks to everyone that has followed me on here… all 300 of you. And who knows, by the 8-year mark we might’ve reached 600, who the fuck knows? Either way, thank you very much… I appreciate it!
Have a good one.

200 Followers and an announcement!

Okay, I don’t know if I unwittingly gained some kind of power that attracts people to my blog or if you people just feel sorry for me. But this is honestly pretty fucking awesome. After having done this for a little over two and a half years, I finally reached 200 followers! Seriously, I am eternally grateful to anyone who decided to follow my silly stuff. For those who just arrived here, welcome to the madhouse! For those who have been here for a week or two, glad to have you here. For those who have been here for a few months, fun to see that you’re still on board. And for those who have been with me for the long run, thank you so much for sticking around for so damn long. Seriously, the fact that I even managed to get to 200 at all is fuckin’ incredible. I really can’t tell you how grateful I am about this stuff, it’s beyond words.
But since we actually managed to get here, we should have some sort of celebration. You know, some kind of special post to celebrate this thing. 10 favorite movies has already been done, favorite director has been done, favorite actors would be impossible to do. Yeah, I don’t know what to do. So I want YOU, the reader, to come up with something we can do to celebrate this momentous occasion. Leave any suggestions in the comments section of this post or send a tweet @TheMarckoguy with a suggestion, you decide where you send it. Again, thank you all so much for this, I really can’t express how awesome this is!

While were at it, I have a little announcement to make. I am currently planning for this year’s “Month of Spooks”. For those that don’t know, the “Month of Spooks” is a thing I started last year in October where I reviewed a whole bunch of Horror movies (because October equals Halloween). And I wanted to do it again this year, but try to expand it a bit. Last year it was a half-assed thing that I started in the middle of the month where I just started reviewing a few horror movies. But this year I really want to make something more out of it. Not sure exactly what I’ll do, but I got a few things up my sleeve for it that I might do. And you know what, maybe you could participate too. I’ll try to set up some type of thing where you could possibly sign up for the “Month of Spooks”.  So stand by for further word on that.

But yeah… that’s about it. Once again, leave suggestions in the comments or on twitter for what you would like to see as a sort of special since I hit 200 followers. You guys really are awesome, without all of you I wouldn’t have stuck around for as long as I did. Thank you so much, really. I salute you!

Ten Thousand(ish) Views!

The views!

Good evening, my friends and other possible people who may or may not be reading this. This is not a post I do very often (mostly because these types of things happening incredibly rarely). And if things continue going like it currently does, you won’t have to see these types of posts that often (self-deprecation, ain’t it fun?). So let’s talk about this.

So as the title (and image) above this text says, I have finally reached ten thousand(+) views on this blogerydoo! That’s right, a bit over two and a half years on wordpress and I NOW reach this milestone. To be fair, I’m sure some blogs might not reach this milestone at all, but that’s probably only because the bloggers on those sites give up too soon (no disrespect meant to those people)! But yeah, for the longest time I didn’t think I would ever be able to reach this. Sure, 10000 views is pretty much chump change for some bloggers, but for me it’s a pretty big deal. It shows that people are interested in reading about my opinions on stuff and things. It even shows that some people are willing to return to this damn thing every now and then and have a read. For those folks I say, thank you. For those who have only read my blog once and have never returned, thank you. For those who are coming here for the first time, thank you. Shit… I thank anyone who come here and read my things and possibly even liking posts, commenting on posts, and following me for even more posts. What I’m trying to say is that… I am thankful for all the people who have helped me get this far. I’ve made some really good friends thanks to this thing, and I hope to make many more. Thanks… all of you people of the internetz.

I guess now that I’ve reached 10000(+) views, I should aim to reach 200 followes. I guess that’s the challenge… reach 200 followers before the end of 2016. Can this be achieved? Who the fuck knows?
Have a good one! (Also, this achievement gets the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”).

100 Followers

100 followers

How’s it going guys? I am here today to make the announcement that I finally reached 100 followers on the blog. Okay, to be fair it did happen on friday, but out of respect for what happened in France I decided to postpone the announcement a little bit and I have since then gotten two more followers (so now it’s 102 people). Want proof? Look!

Sure, it’s a screenshot from my phone, but I think it’s good enough evidence.

First off I wanted to thank everyone who decided to follow this dumbass blog of mine. I never thought a smalltown guy from northern Europe like me could really do this well in the blogging community. Seriously… thank you all.

Secondly, I feel like a celebratory thing is in order… I do however not know what one could do. So I would like to get some feedback form you guys what I could do as a sort of celebration. And don’t be shy with your suggestions, anything’s allowed… it’s just that I maybe won’t do your specific suggestion. But feel free to suggest anything you want.

But once again, thank you all for your support and I hope you all have a great day. Big applause to you.
