CCLemon99 2018 Year-End Review

Canadian Toys R Us!

Hello!

This is the annual post where I review all of the content that I put out in the previous twelve months. 2018...has certainly been a year. Personally I've had some ups and downs. Ups: Trips to Mexico and Canada. Downs: Where to begin?

The Youtube Channel and site output kinda reflect this. Here is the list of content that I did manage...

CCLemon99.com Posts of 2018

On the site I posted a whopping fifty-two posts in 2018. Two posts went up every month with the big exception being April. I tried something new in April where I reviewed every Akina Nakamori album with a few extras. So far, that experiment has been worth it considering the feedback I've gotten from people looking to get into Nakamori and not really knowing where to begin. I didn't expect big numbers, but I see that project going on to help other prospective fans in the future.

Outside of the Nakamori project, I'm proud of a lot of the site content that I released this year. A lot of good thought pieces and two great Sentai overviews (Gingaman and GoGo Five) to finish out the year. The weird hit of the year was the Maskman BGM post... I'm definitely going to name another stinker soundtrack in 2019. You asked for it!
