2017. Unlike this year, I did it in a single-page format with shorter answers. In 2018, I did it again as individual posts.
From an ease-of-updating perspective (and staying current) having a single page was easier, but individual posts gives me space to ruminate. In theory, it also provides more posts on more varied topics for search engines to find, but I really need to go back and look at the analytics to see if that’s true.
In 2019, 2020, and 2021 I made runs at RPG a Day, but didn’t get beyond a few posts. In those years they went with single word prompts rather than this year’ questions (2017 and 2018 also went with a question format). I struggled with the single word prompts – such as “unique”, “engage”m and “ancient” – and I’m not sure why. Looking at them again now, it seems easy enough to write something, but in the moment, I was stumped.
Questions, on the other hand, are far easier to answer. I read the prompt, and almost instantly know what I want to write (except for favorite RPG cover … that’s a tough one).
Looking back, I see I have a few unpublished posts from the 2019-2021 era, so I may go back and schedule those. The content is written, why not share it?
