Dogasu's Backpack | Rants | Happy Anniversary! (Year Eleven)
Eleven years! It’s not as nice a number as ten, but it’s still an important milestone in any website’s life since it's the start of the page's second decade in existence. It still manages to be exciting even all these years later.
This past year was another big one for the site. It was the year when I started doing comparisons of the most recent episodes again after taking a break for DP Battle Dimension and most of DP Galactic Battles. It was the year I revamped the site’s Manga section and started covering new chapters as they were released in Japan, posting what is often the only information about these series in English. It was the year I revamped a lot of the pages in the Lyrics Section. It was the year I started the site’s Twitter page. It was the year I turned this website into a Digimon site for April Fool’s Day.
A lot happened in 2010, and I’m more or less proud of all the stuff I put out. I’m kind of bummed at the fact that I didn’t do more Kanto comparisons than I did last year, but I think the 47 Diamond & Pearl comparisons I did in the meantime more than make up for it.
When it comes to things that aren’t this website, Pocket Monsters had another huge year. It’s hard to believe that we didn’t even know the titles of the first set of Generation V games this time last year yet now have the Japanese versions in our hands with the international versions just around the corner. It’s also hard to believe that the incredibly polarizing Best Wishes! is out, with its different protagonists and lack of Contests and more childish Satoshi and super serious Rocket-Dan and all that.
So what’s coming down the line in 2011? Well, I want to continue putting out new comparisons and new manga summaries, of course, but I don’t want to stop there. The List of Techniques, something I’ve been talking about updating for a few months now, will finally get the revamp it desperately needs. And remember how I was supposed to finish the CD Guide last year? Well, I think this might be the year I actually get that done.
I really want to revamp the site’s layout, but I honestly don’t think that will be something I’ll be able to do this year given the various real world things I'll have going on in 2011. Maybe next year?
I always end these things with a list of predictions for the following year, so here goes:
