Three Month Reflection Filler Extravaganza

Every so often it seems to be a given that an organisation (and What About Cynics is an organisation in the very loosest use of the word) will write something on an important anniversary that is reflective, humble, and hopefully poignant. As no-one has ever been sure how long What About Cynics will last, then I feel now is an ideal time as any to get it out of the way for a while, that and up until 2 days ago, I had nothing to post. Now I found myself with a bloated Political Rambling and a screenshot filled rant at a contemporary game, which is the blogging equivalent of a gold mine.

So yes, 90 days (ish, damn you Romans) have passed since three plucky, depressive, apathetic got talking about my past failed blogging experience, and decided to try and make our own internet experiment. About now I should talk about how we dedicated ourselves to a high quality of work, like some cheesy supermarket chain, but really we just wrote what we pleased. Currently we have 62 published articles, 5 in draft. That works out over one every 2nd day, much higher than I originally thought. And the amount of views we have received have been beyond expectation, given that we aren't on any preexisting site and so can't be easily linked up like youtube or flickr, we've had to pry people out of their internet bubbles, as I write this the view'o'meter rests on 22,007, across 89 countries In the grand scale of the internet, not much, in the context of a small blog that has virtually nothing but writing, a 10 issue webcomic,an unpublished podcast, and several let's plays to its name, in the parlance of our times...Everything went better than expected.

Pictured, plucky depressives, it has been speculated that I was the only one playing video games.
