After some thought, I have decided to remove the "reactions" to each individual blog entry.
As a device to keep tabs on what people likes or not, It served its purpose. I know I am on track with the blog's content and I really appreciate the pats in the back which came in the form of "give me more like this".
I also appreciate the well intended "please stop this nonsense". Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about those because the majority of readers didn't agree on those negative reactions. Some of those "unlikes" were not so nice, like the ones on a blog entry with a video of my son playing airsoft. But hey, a father can be biased watching his kiddo grow an appetite on all things military.
That's change number one.
Change number two is that given my current day job obligations, the content of the blog entries is being trimmed or divided in several parts. You already have seen that: AARs with just captioned screenshots, debriefs delivered in pieces, etc. Shorter entries are already in. Unless is a game review, like the upcoming review of Scourge of War Waterloo.
I hope you still stick around. And if not, it was really great to have you on the other side of screen.
