Although Christmas was last week, I received a wonderful present this morning. When I logged into the blog I saw that Dungeon’s Master hit 2 million page views. It took us 31 months to reach our first million page views; it took only 17 more to reach our second million.
We’re approaching our fourth anniversary on February 1, and I honestly never thought that we’d ever have this kind of readership. You hope that people will find your website, read what you have to say, and enjoy it enough to come back again to see what you have to say next. If you’re really lucky they tell their friends and your readership continues to grow. We’ve been very fortunate because this is exactly what’s happened.
I’d like to think that we’ve made (and continue to make) a positive impression on the gaming community. We’ve certainly done our part to promote public play programs like Living Forgotten Realms (LFR), D&D Encounters and Lair Assault. But we’d also like to think that people have read our articles, tried some of the things we’ve suggested, and it’s made their gaming experience better.
As we do every month in our Month in Review column, I want to thank all of our readers. Without your continued support this site would never have reached such a significant milestone. Although we no longer publish every day, we still strive for regular updates a few times a week. Last week we published our 1,000th article, another goal we never thought we’d reach. As long as we feel that we can add something valuable to your game we’ll do our best to keep writing new articles and keep offering our thoughts and suggestions on D&D.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Wizards of the Coast for allowing Wimwick and I both the opportunity to write for them. I had two articles published in Dungeon#206 (September 2012), and let me tell you that it was a dream come true.
When we started Dungeon’s Master we had no idea where it would lead us; we certainly didn’t expect it to ever reach 2 million page views. Now that we’re here I can’t even imagine where it will lead us next. Our thanks to everyone who helped make this happen.
