Happy Anniversary and Welcome to WorldBuildingRules! Year 5

Today’s post marks the beginning of  the fifth year online for WorldbuildingRules! Happy Anniversary to us!

princess bride cupcakes by Angela's Kitchen

This week is also the 25th anniversary of The Princess Bride, and these yummy looking cupcakes by Angela’s Kitchen seem the perfect way to party. Skip down to the end of this post for a link to Angela’s blog and the cupcakes.

I’ve talked about culture, adventure, magic, clothing, and many other things, and have looked at worldbuilding and storytelling in books, movies, TV shows. I’ve accumulated 112 tags so far, in 41 categories.

The blog has grown from 1 or 2 visitors a day in the first months,  to several dozen on an average day, and several hundred on a really good day. In 4 years, I’ve had nearly 40,000 visits in all, and over 11,000 in the past 12 months (despite some stretches of really infrequent posting this summer, sorry!).

Even better, I also have a small and very smart community of followers who make great comments on my posts! And you’re the people I want to talk to now, because you’ve stayed with me.

So tell me, please, what would you like to see here in the next 12 months?

What topics haven’t I thought of, that you’ve been waiting for me to cover?

What debates in our genre would you like me to discuss?

What subject that we have talked about deserves a follow up post?

What worldbuilding resources would you like help tracking down?

If the above list doesn’t generate any suggestions, here’s another option- please run your eyes down the tag and category clouds.

What tags or categories need more material?

Which tag and which category are your favorites?

What tag or category would you like to see added to the mix?

I would love to hear any and all suggestions, inspirations or complaints (inconceivable!), to give me lots of ideas for the next 150!
