It’s that time of the year again… More wrinkles, more lines, more drinking? 😀 Since I’m not good with birthdays, the next time I celebrate us getting old will be for our 10th year anniversary, yunno, if we are still around then.
Like every year, I have no idea what to say, except the corny quotes that you guys have probably heard throughout the blogging world: Thank-you so much for the love and support these past few years. 2014 is memorable because I finally figured out what I wanted to do with this blog and where I see it going in the future. In the past, I would blog just to pass time. Now I blog with the mission to share goodies and information, and sometimes a tear or two. I dedicated a lot of time and effort into blogging in 2014, it had the most updates and long-running projects. Heck, I’m even learning to become an encoder (thanks to Sin, Ano, and Zero for being the Kool family in the background, encoding Kdramas for the addicts. Go Team ZASK!)
So I woke up early and baked myself some red velvet cupcakes (second try.) Yesh, I’m going to eat them all alone. 😉
A close-up of one because I kinda…burst the frosting bag after one try… I’m telling you those frosting bags are impossible to work with!
Let’s walk down the accomplishments we made in 2014!
Our search engine stats! I find it so adorable that Zhao Li Ying name is crowned first place (if you exclude the numerous variations to our blog name)! Did my mission to become Zhao Li Ying’s #1 fangirl a success? HECK TO THE YEA! And how sweet is it that people actually google-search our blog name to get here? To think that some told me years ago that A Virtual Voyage is a ridiculous name for a drama blog and reminds them of a cruise. I was like, exactly! A cruise to different corners of the drama landscape! And I almost choked on my tea when that horrible drama I recapped landed in 3rd spot. Oh Feast of the Gods!
Dang Jeff and his Heartstrings post, still dominating the most-viewed post section after 3 years! Keane‘s massive effort stole the 3rd spot for her numerous soundtrack compilations, and here we have It’s Okay It’s Love as the top dog. The finale of Feast of the Gods got 5th place??!! REALLY? Feels like I’m being haunted by this series… It’s been 2 years, let me go!
Haha! This results cracks me up! I found out this past year that I am indeed a spammer for whenever I visit other drama blogs and leave a comment, it goes straight to the spam box, as if there’s a hidden community on the net where my name is whispered in hushed tone. If I know the blog owner, I would email them about the error, if not I just like their posts instead. Such a loser! And I have no doubt that Keane is in second place. 🙂
Congratulations to Frea, Shimo (Yolo), and Millie for being active!
I hope 2015 is more fruitful than the last, let’s make this community an interactive one! Don’t be a silent lurker! Come out and play. ^_^
