10,000 Hits!

Posted by Mercenary Spark on August 8, 2008

Yeah! Well we got to 10,000 hits today, the 8th of August of 2008 at 8 pm GMT (it was 4 pm here, which is Atlantic time, but GMT’s the one that really matters). Also if my Math is correct, it’s been exactly 200 days since I created this blog (it’s the 201th day, but I created the blog on the afternoon and I’m counting days that passed). Thanks to all the authors and readers of this blog for your help. All of you have helped to make this one of the top 5 music and gaming blogs in the web (when in doubt ask google). Our start was as rocky as any other blog, but we have come a long way, thanks to all of you. Again I thank you all for your support and not giving up.

3,000 Hits and New Features

Posted by Mercenary Spark on May 28, 2008

A few hours ago, Mercenarylight’s Blog passed 3,000 hits. After a rough start and 130 days, we achieved something I thought wasn’t possible for me. I found out in the last few weeks that what makes a blog triumph is what makes it stand out from the billions of other sites out there in the web and what it offers to its visitors. But hits aren’t everything (if I satisfy myself with just that I should not call myself a true blogger), and for that reason is why I try to give my visitors anything they want that I can afford to give.

[Hybrid Zone], Home of the Cool Blue smilies

Posted by Mercenary Spark on May 26, 2008

My other site, [Hybrid Zone] is now the Home of the cool blue smilies, smilies I made using different shades of blue. At the moment none of them are animated, because I don’t have the right programs, and if I have, I don’t know where in my pc they are. I’ll start adding smilies every few weeks, but at the moment you have a lot to use. You may use them anywhere, on your site, forum or just for your personal use. You don’t have to give me credit, but you can’t say that you made them or redistribute them. I suggest you save them on your computer, because hotlinking might end up in the smilies looking like this and I may remove any or all smiliees at any given moment. Visit the site to get the smilies and try to come back often, because I’ll be adding more soon.

School’s Out!!

Posted by Mercenary Spark on May 20, 2008

Yes! Yes, finally after all this time and all those special projects and homework, and tests, my vacation has finally officially began. With my new free time, I finally made another game review since this blog started. I didn’t release it earlier not entirely because of my laziness, but also because of school. So finally, I published the article I promised, the game review for Summon Night: Twin Age (for the Nintendo DS).

2,000 Hits!

Posted by Mercenary Spark on May 4, 2008

About half an hour ago, Mercenarylight’s Blog passed the 2,000 hit mark, 106 days after the blog’s creation. In almost exactly 15 weeks, this blog has achieved something I hope it can keep pulling off. I know it may look like I’ve been lazy for not writing a game review in 3 months and a music review in 1, but I’ve been busy working on the forum and my homework. I promise all of you, my recurring and unique visitors, that I’ll make a review as soon as my free time permits. I’ve recently added a shoutbox to the Hybrid Mix forum and I’m working on some of the new features, including an online game section. To take advantage of all of Hybrid Mix’s features, have fun, and talk about games, music and other things you like, visit the forums and register there.

 Rock On!

100 Days!

Posted by Mercenary Spark on April 28, 2008

100 Days have passed since the creation of this blog (January 20), my most successful at the moment. And just when it seems this blog might not last until next year (for various situations), a last hope appears. Summer vacation is about to arrive soon in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning more free time for me and you, new posts and something new. Mercenarylight’s blog will have a new transformation from an ordinary music and portable gaming WordPress weblog into something else with hopefully a more cool and attractive theme to help the blog grow, some more media added and some surprises. This blog has already exceeded my expectations with over 1,900 hits to this day (this does not include the views by the writers of this blog, the recurring visitors, if you’ve been wondering).
