Q2 Results

This quarter ended much to fast for me and I need this exercise to help keep me honest.  Here is a review of the status of my two main blogs. My gaming, painting and blog were acceptable. My biggest advance in painting was with my fleets increasing the size by 37% and 34 ships. I will be doing more as my painting table is a mess with WWI, Falklands and Interwar ships and airships cluttering the work area, all in different states of completion.

As for the blogs, well I could have done better.

So what does this mean, well getting to 100K is still a long way off for either blog. I am seeing more comments and the feedback is positive so that is good. Unfortunately the feedback is often on other social media site. I need to work on that.

My new goal is a combined 40 posts per month for Q3. That is doable as I have a lot to say about both history and gaming. Funny how that happens.
