Even with another light news week for Marvel properties, I have some to talk about in the news, as I talk about the projects had to be paused and Black Widow being delayed. Then I take a look at Marvel Unlimited, Marvel’s comic book repository…

There’s some movie and Disney+ rumors on characters who might be showing up in other shows. Plus, I talk about a new board game that I found, Marvel Champions, and if you’re a board game fan, is this a good Marvel and superhero experience? Any…
Starting off with the news, there’s a new superhero team in town that you can pick up at your friendly local comic book store (or digitally) tomorrow (February 18th). Plus, some talk from Sony about what future films might be coming in their Spider-verse that…
There’s a chunk of news to start off, first we’re getting some new Black Widow footage, but that was airing after I recorded the episode, so go track it down now. Instead, the news focuses on a Marvel movie, but not one in the MCU,…
There’s a bunch of news ranging from a new trailer for some New Mutants, WandaVision and Christian Bale. Plus, I take a look at Captain America: Winter Soldier as part of my Marvel Movie watch through. Where does Captain America: Winter Soldier rate for you in the MCU movies?

Last #10MinMarvel of 2019 is out. What am I looking for in 2020? That’s what I’m talking about this week, plus possible characters showing up in Doctor Strange and Multiverse of Madness. I’m excited for what’s coming out in 2020, but I’m really excited for…
Alright, so two episode have come out since I’ve been posting, this one, 24, came out on Christmas Eve, December 24th. This episode I talk about some news, but it’s mainly about my top 5 Marvel highlights from 2019. What are somethings that you remember…
I do this every year, some of it is state of the website and some of it is things that I want to do in the new year. I’m not a big person for resolutions, but I do like to put down some goals for the year so that I have something I can shoot for.
Just looking back at 2019, I streamed more than 20 times and I got 40+ books read. The watch 5 anime to end of their seasons or wherever they are, pretty sure I got to that one, but I didn’t get games I bought in 2019 all of them played. I think I have a few for streaming that I haven’t gotten to yet.
So let me make a new set of resolutions:
- Always be reading a book. What do I mean by that, I mean that I want to always have a book that I’m actively working on. If you don’t read for a week, that’s fine, but if it goes longer than that, I want to be reading more.
- To go with the first one, I want to get a big dent into the books that I own but haven’t read yet. Some of them are going to be fast to read, others are long, but I want to get through a number of them.
- Stream a game the whole way through. Not sure what it is going to be, but Folklore: The Affliction is high on the list, and so is something like Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth or some of the games that I have coming in.
- Don’t miss a week of #10MinMarvel. This will be tricky to end the year, but I’m hoping not to miss a week, because I want to make it a successful podcast. So to do that, I need to be consistent in what I do, plus if I miss one week, I’ll make an excuse as to why I can miss future ones. And, I suspect there will be a lot of fun Marvel news this upcoming year.
- Finish the chronological Marvel watch through. We made it through a number of them and are up to Winter Soldier, but for #10MinMarvel, I want to get the rest of the way through them. Ideally before Black Widow, but we’ll see if that happens.
Then let’s talk about the Nerdologists website. We got moved over to a new hosting site last year and it has made a big difference in speed. I don’t know that we’ll see any massive changes on the site, though I might start looking at updating the design later in the year.
And let me look at some stats. I just want to say thank you to everyone who went through some of the hiccups that we had with the system earlier in the year and show off how the numbers are compared to last year through the same time period.
So last year we had 40950 users with a whopping 415% increase from the previous year where we had just under 8000. But more than that, we had 151,942 page views as compared to 27,751, over a 440% increase. The amount of time people spent on the site increased and the bounce rate, people leaving the site fast, decreased.
Malts and Meeples Youtube/Twitch Channels were started for solo gaming content. Only 3 subscribers so far, but I got up 33 videos and some of them have better than I expect view numbers. Still not many people joining live, but that’s one thing I want to get better at, having a consistent streaming time for people to join me.
10 Minute Marvel was also started. I’ve gotten a couple of ratings and reviews, and in the time it’s been up 278 listens. The listens are also slowly increasing which is what I was looking for. If you haven’t checked it out, please do so, and let me know any feedback you might have.
So what do I want to do new now in 2020?
A few of my resolutions are also for the site, keeping up streaming and podcast are the big two.
I hope that in 2020 I can do some new things as well in terms of content. Not sure what it might be, maybe interviews, maybe patreon, whatever it might be, it’s going to probably be a surprise for me as well as you. But If we can continue to see growth into 2020, that’s awesome. I doubt that we’ll see 400% increases, but I’m hoping that it’ll continue to increase.
But, let me wrap this up just by saying THANK YOU to everyone who checks out the site, I’m so glad that you do. Hopefully some of the new content, the streams and podcast interest you, and I look forward to writing a lot more content that hopefully you’ll continue to enjoy. If you have any suggestions for the site, please contact me one of the ways below, and I’ll consider it and dialog with you about it.

Last week I talked about the Black Widow trailer and some of the characters in that and what we know of the story thus far, which isn’t much. But there was a lot of other news, so I wasn’t able to talk about the character…
