One Year of Game by Night

Look at this, the one year marker for this site has come and gone and I didn’t even notice. Sunday was this blog’s first birthday and I’m very happy with how this past year has gone.

During that time, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Darren, Tobold, and Larisa. I’ve started a podcast and found great friends in Ferrel and Riknas, not to mention the hosts of the MMO Voices podcast and more. I’ve changed my handle twice, to my real name and back, trying to forge my online identity. Over the course of 301 posts, 1102 tags, and many great comment section discussions, I’ve taken some risks and come out better for it.

When I first started the site, my main goal was to pick up the steam where I left off with Fires of War. The MMO community has been incredibly welcoming and I’ve passed all of the goals I started with and find myself setting new ones for this coming year. Comment volume has picked up tremendously from when we started and that’s as satisfying a thing a blogger could ask for. In the coming year, I hope to see it grow more as I work to expand the site and share my thoughts on the genre.

The top post this year was my guide “Practical Tips for the Fallen Earth Newbie,” followed by “So You’ve Decided to Go Casual.” I guess that means a lot of us are past the hardcore days and are more interested in indie games and risk takers. As always, the latency guide proves to bring new people in every day, so I hope it’s doing folks some good.

I’m not big on meta-blogging, so this post is a little bit of an exhale for me. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank a few bloggers who helped keep me inspired and writing: Tobold, Larisa, Gordon, Ferrel, Syp, Beau and Leala, Spinks, Stabs, Cindy, and the whole MMO Voices community. If I haven’t mentioned you, it’s not because I haven’t noticed. Thanks for the support.

Most importantly, though, thanks to you for stopping by here and visiting with me. It’s nice to see so many familiar faces on top of the new who come to share their thoughts and comments. You guys make this worthwhile.

So, here’s to another year of Game by Night!
