Robo♥beat Turns One Year Old!

Today is Robo♥beat’s 1st birthday!

It’s amazing to think of how much my life has changed since launching this blog. I’ve been especially luck to meet so many awesome people online through WordPress and Twitter. If you want to meet some of them too, please check out my blogroll or look at all the people I follow on Twitter here. Many of them also contribute to Geek Force Network, a geek fest website started by the guys at At the Buzzer Show.

Mostly, I’ve just been having a blast writing about all of my favorite geeky interests and hearing from all of you about them, too. I feel so, so lucky to have so many readers, which is something I really didn’t think would happen. When I first started this blog, I didn’t expect anyone to find it. I thought this blog would be a good outlet for my writing and a way for me to get my interest in video games out there for potential jobs, etc… but developing a strong readership was something that came about unexpectedly and naturally. So thank you so much for reading, subscribing, leaving Likes, and sharing your thoughts in the comments. All of the feedback and support makes blogging here a much more fun and rewarding experience!

If you’re brave, you can go back and check out my very first post “Combat vs. Story in RPGs.” It has no pictures, and I hadn’t played Mass Effect 3 yet, so it’s pretty adorable.

Now, I’ll leave you with this badass pic of Thane from Mass Effect 2, because it may or may not be my computer backdrop this summer… Yeah, it is.

  1. YAY! Happy 1 year! :) Time flies fast, doesn’t it? I already have a special post in mind when my blog hits two years in November. It’s funny when you don’t expect much to happen from a little project and then all of a sudden BIG things happen. I’m still amazed by the amount of people I feel I’ve gotten closer to in the last few years and months even. I wouldn’t trade that for anything at all. I’m looking forward to your blog continuing for many more years to come! ;)

    1. Thanks! It’s so true, time flies and you just never know what’s going to happen next with these projects. And then there are new projects, like Geek Force… Blogging has become a much bigger part of my life than I expected thanks to all the cool people I’ve met here, including you! =)

  2. Congrats! I wish you many many more years of blogging! Yours is one of the blogs that I come back to week after week and I always look forward to seeing what your weekly post is about. It’s easy to see why you have so many loyal fans and I’m glad I can be one of them. Keep up the awesome work! :)

    1. Thank you! I feel the same way about your blog, I must say… And I’ve come to really love blogging and the whole blogosphere due to all the cool writers and podcasters and creators I’ve found on here! =)

  3. Woohoo! Congrats on hitting 1 year. Hope you have many more years of great blogging here. Maybe one day I will play Mass Effect or watch Doctor Who and I will have more to say in the comments!

  4. Happy belated birthday! I always love coming back to your blog to see what new content you’ve written — you cover well a wonderful variety of topics. May your success continue! :)
