10/28 UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who has commented so far. I will leave this post up through today, then it’s back to business with a Fantasy Zone review tomorrow.
Good day, friends and associates of Sega Does,
It’s been about six months since I started this blog to review every game across every Sega console. Given this mild anniversary, I think it’s only fair to bust out a few stats about Sega Does and discuss where the site should go next.
Since late April, I have reviewed over 80 games and conducted over a dozen podcasts with my UK comrade-in-arms, Sam. Together, we’ve traversed through the entire SG-1000 library, and are currently entering into the depths of the Mark III / Master System. The site has also received over 600 comments and over 32,000 views during this time. Not bad, considering the main focus for the majority of the site’s existence has been a system few people outside of Japan have played or even heard of.
I look forward, not only to growing the site, but also to expanding it. I want Sega Does to be an all-around Sega hub, filled with information and insights that you can only get here. Yes, the blog will still predominantly be a one-man trek through Sega’s various consoles, and yes, the podcast will, for the most part, be me and Sam rambling about Sega games. But there will be more. The question is, what?
For those of you who have been with the blog/podcast for awhile, read/heard the positives and negatives, this question is for you:
What arenas would you like to see Sega Does venture into, if any, beyond the written reviews and podcasts? Video? Streaming? Forums? Something else?
Are there any areas where Sega Does could improve?
I have my own initiatives I would like to take with the site, but before I fly off the handle and do something crazy, I want to hear from the readers and listeners – you guys and gals. I could lie and say I’d tackle this endeavor even if no one read the posts or listened to the show, but the truth is, I don’t know if I could. It’s incredibly gratifying to read people’s responses – both positive and negative – to one’s work, and frankly, your responses keep me going on the harder days. So thank you. Everybody’s comments and views means a great deal.
Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below. I encourage anybody who visits the site on a regular basis to comment if you have any ideas, even if you don’t comment normally. I will consider everyone’s suggestions and let you know what I’ve decided after this post has been up for a couple days.
Thanks again for your continued patronage. I look forward to the next six months, two years, decade – however long it takes to see this madness through.
