I hope you all had a nice evening yesterday. I would like to take the opportunity and preview the things to come in 2008. 2007 was an astonishing year for Ghacks and I have great plans so that 2008 will exceed the last year in all terms. You can expect roughly 1500 new posts this year written by me which should keep you up to date with all the latest trends, programs, services and hacks that you can imagine.
My guest authors will hopefully contribute 500 articles as well which means that we will publish 2000 articles in 2008 altogether. You might have noticed that the Friday Fun series was discontinued here at Ghacks. This is not because I do not like it but because I'm going to build a new blog that has only one topic: games.
It will cover free online games plus free games that can be downloaded and introduce one game per day to the readers. That's my first project for 2008. The next big thing is a web 2.0 project that I'm currently programming and designing with a friend which will hopefully launch in January.
It will run in Alpha for a month or two and you can be sure that I will throw out alpha invites like crazy here on Ghacks. Be prepared there is more to come.
What about you? Do you have plans for 2008?
