So every year, on the site's anniversary, I like to write up a brief post about everything that's happened in the past year, almost like a journal of my thoughts that I'm publishing out to the world. And sure enough, six years ago today, the site went live for the very first time. I can't believe it's been this long already, nor all the cool things that happened this year!
Perhaps the coolest is my collab with pop singer Lindsay Pagano on the 300th fun fact. Lindsay was so down-to-Earth and sweet! I'm always worried about potentially bothering people who've worked on the show when asking them to collaborate, but Lindsay seemed genuinely excited to contribute and it was so cool to get to meet her! She also posted it not once, but three times, on her Instagram story that day! (1, 2, 3)
Some other really cool things I started this year include the weekly polls, which have been so fun to see what everyone's opinions on stuff is! I really enjoyed doing them as an experiment last September during Scooby's 50th anniversary month, and I knew I wanted to keep doing them! I also began writing monthly editorial articles, something I've been wanting to do now forever, and I finally lived up to my word this year haha. It only took a global pandemic to get me motivated lol!
Another thing I'm super proud of is the comics page, which provides a listing of every Scooby-Doo comic series and all the individual titles within each issue. It was initially going to be a 2020 project, but I buckled down before decade's end, and two days before 2020 (December 30, 2019), I wrote it all up and published it!
Lastly, I also redesigned all the site graphics, with the help of my wonderful friend Bradford N. Smith, who created all of these to help me out. I think they look amazing! On a related note, I actually don't think I've ever talked about this, but I also created some brand colors for the site, which is that blue and yellow. I really like the theme, honestly!
Thank you so much to everyone for making this an amazing 6 years of ScoobySnax.com! I'm so lucky to have such kind, awesome people frequent my site, and it's really cool that this has become a community for Scooby fans.
Here's to another great year of ScoobySnax.com!
