[Editorial] Celebratory Post: 200 Followers!!!


This is really incredible for me…

Once I hit the goal of 100 followers, which for me was a huge number, being my other blog MoviesTavern stuck at 50ish, I never thought that I could have added other 100 followers to my cause, but now we (you) are 200!

Moreover the same day we hit the magic number of 3000 views so I’m double proud!

Without doing a self-celebration, which is the best way to be hated, I would like to thank all of you since it’s because of you I reached this magic number. Among all the followers, I’d like to thank especially some of you that always makes me happy with their likes and comments and make me feel like a real tiny blogger 🙂

Since I’ve always love the collections (I started a lot in the past, from stamps, to coins, to corks – yes, I collected even corks) and I love old games, the most natural thing is to start a consoles/games collection. I’m not wealthy as Aristotele Onassis but now that I have my job, sometimes I can treat myself to some shopping in the world of the retro gaming; for this reason now on the blog there will be a new section dedicated to my picks and to the consoles and games I already own.

Regarding this I would like to thank Hungry Goriya who not only post great stuff about her gaming picks giving some useful hints regarding what’s out there to buy, but also mentioned me last week for a Blogger Recognition Award. Then my recognition goes to Mr. Panda, who is one of my aficionados, to Cheyenne from Super Fun Time Video Gaming Girl and to her great collection, Rob Covell from I Played the game who always has something to say about my posts, to Killer Robotics who’s always one of the first to read my new articles, to Deconstructing Video Games, to Akkroid Actions Replay Source and to The Shameful Narcissist.

My recognition goes also to Gaming Hearts Collection, a blog I just discovered that always post good stuffs about retro games.

To all of you, you can consider this like a sort of Recognition Award or something like that.

To all the other followers again thanks and I hope you will find something interesting here. I try to do always my best, sometimes the result is good, sometimes is not enough (so in case I keep trying to improve).

Stay retro!

      So double thank you for being one of my earlier followers! 🙂 I’m always excited everytime I read something about retro collections so I can’t help being happy (and a bit jealous 😉 ) when I read your posts about it. I really hope to reach 500 followers but I think it will be very very hard…
