2012 in Review

Hey there fellow Cybertronians and Planeteers,

2012 is drawing to a close, and in the end, the Mayans were wrong and the world did not end... It has been quite a year, but when I look back, it is sad to see that there are still so many things left unachieved. It’s kind of sad when you actually sit down and think about it really. You started the year with a lot of hopes and objectives in hand, but at the end of it all, it is sad to see that nothing materialized out of it.
Still, it has not been a totally bad year at all, although it hasn’t been a stellar one either, but that still doesn’t stop one from viewing the upcoming 2013 with much optimism. At least, there’s no doomsday in sight yet.
Anyways, things have been pretty good for both the New Planet Cybertron and The Planet’s Journal weblogs this year. Both weblogs have been raking in page views for the most part of the year, with the New Planet Cybertron pulling a huge lead over The Planet’s Journal with about 75,000 page views since its inception in 2010. We are actually hoping to reach the 100,000 page views mark or more come this time next year.
The Planet’s Journal too has been gone a huge milestone mid-year this year. After spending a huge part of its existence being known as Planet Cybertron, we’ve finally decided to change its name in order to both fully differentiate both of our weblogs, and also to clearly define the their directions, with the New Planet Cybertron (NPC) solely focusing on Transformers and Action Figures-related information, and The Planet’s Journal (TPJ) focuses on everything else under the sun.
Our Youtube channel, which is a subsidiary branch for both weblogs, is doing quite well so far (though far less successful compared to its more senior franchises). It has so far managed to rake in 5 subscribers, with almost 3000 page views to its credit.
TPJ has been quite active this year with numerous posts on our recent travels, especially to Miri, Brunei and Camerons. We also established a new category called the Performance Journal, which publishes some of my public performances.
NPC, on the other hand, have had so many reviews up, with mostly on past toy lines. The recently posted and much-anticipated “Top 20 Figures in The Family” really capped off a good year for NPC and we look forward to bring you more in the coming year.
So, that’s all folks! We at the New Planet Cybertron and The Planet’s Journal would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013 and we hope that it will be an amazing and fruitful year ahead for all you Cybertronians and Planeteers.
