One year Danaversary!



Here it is. Throw the confetti. Danania.net came online just over one year ago! Woohoo!

Some data review (because that is what I do…):
As of February 28, 2013, According to Blogger, the site had received,
  • 101 posts,
  • 92,000 visitors,
  • 580 comments,
  • 34 "followers".


Because of you early readers, I was blessed to have a great following before I even made the jump from guild-site-forum-writer to an actual blogger, so I had an amazing start. Then, the Riders of Rohan expansion happened in October, and the site blossomed and started to grow! The number of visitors more than doubled in October-2012 drawn to the pictures of the warsteeds and the Warsteed Traiting Guide and the other various guides and "All the Steeds" Gallery! You visitors are just awesome! I am excited that you show up, get something out of the visit, and comment! I would like to think that my writing and pictures have gotten better over the past year. :D

Visitor tally by month:



Some specific links from which the site received the most hits included,

Ketani’s Warsteed discussion… CSTM: the-price-of-a-well-dressed-war-steed 
referencing the many class warsteed cosmetics @ rohan-warsteed-cosmetic-looks 

Warsteed traiting discussions on the forums, including…
referencing the Warsteed Traiting Guide @ rohan-warsteed-traiting-part-1

Goldenstar’s seal of approval… CSTM: recommended-reading-danania-net


I have more fun links on the page, Danania's Links.

Thank you to all the people who put links to this site on their pages and forums as well. You know who you are and I know who you are when you tell me, and I try to keep my Links page up to date. :)  

The most popular Google searches that hit this site included “danania”, “danania.net”, “supergirl hunt”, “lotro riders of rohan”, “rk legacies”, and numerous steeds that show up throughout the blog and gallery.


Some of your most visited pages (according to Blogger) include,
  1. The original stat math post (lotro-stat-math-rk-gear)
  2. The Warsteed Cosmetic post (rohan-warsteed-cosmetic-looks)
  3. Fastest Skirmishes (fastest-skirmishes-marks-per-minute)
  4. Steed of Victory and Steed of Dol Baran (steed-of-victory-and-steed-of-dol-baran)
  5. The Herbalist build (Herbalist)

  7. Legacies for RK LIs (legacies-for-rk-stones)

I need to do some new posts revising some of these as Update 10 tweaked some of the digits.


And thankfully, you liked my Guide to All the Steeds, which I keep up-to-date. With my enjoyment of the Steeds, I try to make sure you will always find it full of the most comprehensive set of steeds lotro has to offer! (All the Steeds)

Thank you so much for visiting Danania.net!
