I really enjoy writing this blog. Despite being very inconsistent about when I post or what I write about it’s a great extension to playing and collecting these retro video games that I’m so obsessed with.
What I didn’t expect was how much more fun it is finding people who (for reason’s unknown! 😛 ) want to see what I’m up to next. Most of you are very quiet but I know you’re there. And that feels good. Thank you.
Very recently I hit 100 followers…
I actually don’t like the term ‘followers’. To me it implies a distinction or elevation of one over the other; which is not the case here. To me this blog is more akin to meeting a friend of a friend. A social and level playing field. I don’t know a better term other than ‘Retro Comrades’. Which is what I’ve labeled the widget to the right that lists many of you.
In this massive Interweb of ours 100 is not considered very significant. But today it is… at least for me. So, for fun, I’d like to give away a copy of Ashley Riot’s Classic Women of Gaming.
First I’m going to qualify 100. For starters I’m not following my own blog! And yes, I have signed up a few close friends without their consent but it has been many years and they have not removed themselves. So I’m declaring that this tiny milestone is straight up legit!
Even if a few of you drop out I’ll still move forward with this as 100 has in fact happened, even if it doesn’t last.
The rules? Just write a comment on this post about how you would enjoy this print by Ashley or what you might do with it (put it in your game room or give it to a friend). Or write a comment about this blog… or whatever. A lot of effort or just a little will all count the same.
I’ll draw a name from everyone who comments and mail the winner a print of Classic Women of Gaming. It’s approximately two feet long and I personally feel that it really rocks.
Comment before Wednesday May 27th 11:59 pm in order to be entered in the draw.
And if you miss out but still really want a print you can contact the artist directly from where I found her at http://jocelynada.deviantart.com.
