When I started The Comic Vault last year, I did it with the mentality of wanting to write about something that made me happy. The more people responded to it, the more I started to set a goal for myself. Before the end of 2017 I told myself I wanted to reach 10,000 page views and 500 followers. Today, I can say I’ve smashed those targets, reaching over 10,000 and hitting 500 followers. To thank everyone, I wanted to give insight into another topic I’m passionate about.
The blogging community is massive, and it’s a great way to network with people who’re writing in different areas. I’ve decided to introduce an interview section to The Comic Vault that features other bloggers who have an interest in popular culture. Whether you’re interested in comics or gaming, we’re all united by a love of stories and creative avenues.
Kicking off the interviews is the talented Annick over at Only4feet9. Annick has an interest in gaming and I enjoyed chatting to her about her thoughts on the gaming industry.
Being connected more than ever means brands are battling with each other to get their content shared with the wider world. Whether it’s posting on your blog, or sharing competitions on social media, you’re determined to get the kind of audience engagement that matches the quality of your content. But staying relevant can be difficult when the average consumer is bombarded with new articles and videos every day.
With the continued success of The Comic Vault I’ve decided to branch out onto another channel. You can now find a Comic Vault Instagram account that’s dedicated to all things pop culture related. I think it’s another great way to interact with followers and showcase things that can’t be put into words.
Recently, I hit 400 followers and I wanted to thank everyone new who’s come across The Comic Vault. As part of a cathartic process and because I want to keep the topic going about depression in young men, I’ve been giving insights into my personal life. Back in January, I posted an article about how I was feeling very low in myself. I didn’t have a job, I had feelings of worthlessness and I felt trapped inside a rut I couldn’t break out of.
It was recently brought to my attention that The Comic Vault has made it into the Top 75 Comic Blogs on the web. According to Feedspot, the site measures metrics and the amount of engagement across the web. As a result, I’ve received an award badge. This gives me a sense of accomplishment that I was meant to write within the comic industry. I’m always grateful to the people who read my posts on a regular basis.
Writteningeek has nominated me for the Liebster award and I wanted to thank her for the kind surprise. As I’ve said in the past, it’s great that people are responding to what I’m writing. Even though March has been a quieter month for posting I’m grateful for everyone who has looked over The Comic Vault and find’s something worthwhile.
