Greetings and Happy New Year! For our first post of 2015, we’d like to celebrate the work of our readers and friends who have contributed to WotW and our Features.
2014 was an excellent year for WotW, though we were only around for the back half of it. WatchersontheWall was born at the end of July, and by December we had a quality array of work by readers and guest writers that provided a respite from the hiatus news freeze.
Here are the highlights of what we have done in 2014 and a message for the new year.
WotW went to fun places and tried new things:
Eric Scull of Game of Owns tried the new Ommegang Game of Thrones brew
We had some opinion pieces written by readers which sparked great discussions:
And our theories expert Locke produced several outstanding posts for us in past months:
And finally, living under the umbrella of Features is the work of delightful Marc Kleinhenz, a class act and joy to work with.
A (Mini) Murder of Crows: The year in review
Thank you all for your patience as we got the site up and running and for giving our readers- and community-focused features a chance. We truly could not produce this component of our site without your participation and support. I am proud of what we have done in the span of five months.
That being said, we have some exciting things in the mix for 2015. Marc has some ideas cooking and we hope to have more theories for you. We are looking forward to posting guest insight on the world of Game of Thrones in season 5. Of course, we would like to continue posting guest editorials.
Thus if you will allow me to close out this post with a shameless plug: if you would like to pitch an idea or have something you’d like to see us explore, please email us. We are always looking for possible feature series and thought pieces. We want to hear from you.
Cheers and here’s to 2015!
