2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  1. Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
  2. [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
  3. Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h
  4. The Avallac'h CosPlay Costume Making Vlogs
  5. How To Make The Avallac'h CosPlay
  6. How Much Did It Cost? Budgeting The Avallac'h CosPlay
  7. Why do children CosPlay rapists & rape victims? & WHY Avallac'h is a M18+ character. 
  8. PortConMaine 2018
  9. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided

UPDATE April 17, 2018: I do not like being harassed online or offline, in any way, shape or form. Sorry, but what just happened this week is intolerable and I've blocked everyone involved and deleted all their posts. I will continue to block any one else who does the same as these people did. If you were one of the 200+ people blocked on my FaceBook account this week, here's a link to tell you why I blocked you: https://www.eelkat.com/cosplying-a-rapist.html 

If you want a quicker explanation of what happened, I tell you in this video:

site map

Is having a Site Map a MUST, Necessary or not so important in each of my sites.

I see many successful sites do not have a site map, and I thought it was a MUST.

Thanks

Eddy


I'm not sure if it's important from an SEO standpoint, but I know that personally, as a browser, whenever I find a site I like and want to read more of, the first thing I look for is their site map/index/archive, so that I can find more articles I want to read.

If their site is very big and it's difficult to link to all pages from one page (for example it's difficult to list more than 500 links on a page), than at least they should have a "Top 100 Best/Popular Pages" list. Or even a set of pages, each one an index for each category, and one page to list all the index pages. I don't care how they go about it, so long as they have made some way for me to locate their pages. 


And if they don't have some sort of map or index or archive, or if I can't find it easily, I'm prone to leave their site without bookmarking it. 

I'm an author and I often am researching for my novels. If I'm writing a murder I need to know the details of how specific weapons/poisons/etc work. If I'm writing about Scotland or Persian or someplace else, I need to know the culture, folklore, cuisine, traditions, etc. If it's a Historical time period I need to know that info as well.

Well, because I'm on a tight publishing schedule I'm limited to how much time I can spend looking for certain pages on a site. I expect the webmaster to have laid out their site in such a way that I could browse it quickly to find what I'm looking for.

Then I'll need to go back to their site many times over the course of the writing of the novel (4 months or more) and thus I bookmark the sites that are useful. But if the site annoys me by not being easy to find pages important to my research, I'll get frustrated and not go back to the site and look for info elsewhere.

Thus, I prefer sites that make it easy for me to find their pages, thus, as a web browser, I prefer sites that have some sort of method for making it easy to find their pages. Thus I prefer sites to have a site map index.
