I’m back from winter break. What does that mean for the site going forward?
Last year was a transition away from daily blogging, but I may have actually put more overall hours into the site. Making quality posts takes quite a bit of work, but it’s much more rewarding than making several garbage posts over the week. I want to continue this into 2017. This means post frequency will remain roughly the same and about the same topic (REM reviews, godfest help, JP tiers). I’ll also try to mix in quick thought posts here and there, but mainly only in reaction to be JP stream reveals.
Garbage posting will be made on Twitter. The previous couple months were a trial period and I like it enough to continue with it. Don’t expect anything of great value.
I think the JP Aggregate Tier List has be largely successful; at least from my point of view as far as time efficiency. This is because of the upfront investment I made in automating as much of the process as possible. I intend to put more work into the back end this year to hopefully save time in the future. This will be a big reason why I’m not expanding my post repertoire, but if I get some of these improvements done they’ll hopefully save enough time so I can make more content.
On the topic of the JP List, it’s been close to a year since I started it and it’s time to expand the lists included in the aggregate. The more sites, there will be less movement, but it’ll be more meaningful when it does happen. I’ve long wanted to include Altema, from when I first coded the scraping script, but their original list was a ranking list and was difficult to integrate with the tier lists. They’ve now switched to a tier format and look to be updating frequently, so expect them with the next update. I’m also looking at sites like KamiGame and Sqool. If anyone has any other recommendations (or objections to the new sites) I’m all ears.
Anyways, Happy New Year! Hopefully it’s a good one for PAD, too.
