One year of Botwiki
I registered the botwiki.org domain on July 12, 2015, which means Botwiki is one year old now! 🎂👏👏👏🎉
I already shared some of the achievements at the Botwiki Edit-a-Thon back in March, and the project continued to grow since then. Botwiki gets thousands of visits every month, the @botwikidotorg Twitter account has well over 800 followers, and the number of Bot! zine subscribers is nearing 500.
There have been a few setbacks as well, mainly due to lack of time in the past 2-3 months. The Monthly Bot Challenge is currently on hold, and after a brief hiatus, Veronica Belmont took over the Bot! zine newsletter. And the Botmakers community became a bit quiet lately.
Nonetheless, Botwiki and all the related projects have been very successful. Even with the recent hype around bots, there is still not a site similar to Botwiki: a place to explore creative work of enthusiasts and hobby and professional programmers. A source of tutorials, essays, articles, and other resources dedicated to botmaking.
Thanks everyone, and here's to another year of botmaking and bot appreciation! 🤖
