Woo-Hoo It’s Our 1 Year Blogiversary!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today marks the official 1 year anniversary of when TSTO Addicts was officially launched!  And honestly we’re stoked about it!  We’re completely blown away by the AMAZING community of readers we have here at TSTO Addicts.  We absolutely love what we do and really appreciate all of YOU!

Of course we’re no strangers to celebrating an anniversary around here!  We celebrated our 1 month anniversary way back when, and more recently our 6th month anniversary back in February.  We’re always celebrating little milestones with each other and we LOVE to share the bigger ones with you guys!  After all YOU guys are the heart and soul of this community….and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  So, Bunny, Wookiee and I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you to our wonderful readers and share our thoughts on Addicts turning 1! 

Wow Addicts is 1 and I honestly can’t believe it!  Seems like just yesterday this “little blog that could” started as a crazy idea between my childhood friend and I.  When we set out to create the site we wanted to be different.  We wanted to do things no one else was doing.  We wanted something with more personality.  We wanted to laugh.

Now here we stand 1 year later and I think we’ve achieved our goals! (although I’ve always been a bit of an overachiever, so we’ll keep on tweaking and posting to make this place as awesome as we can!)  Seriously though, This site would not be what it is today  with out you amazing readers!  You guys make this place fun, we just supply the music and margaritas!  We love each and every one of you for being here and being part of this TSTO Community! 🙂 

Of course I’m just 1/3 of this site…and it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if I didn’t get to write and work everyday with 2 of my best friends!  Bunny and Wookiee I love you both like you’re family and I know our friendship will continue way beyond TSTO and into those days when you’re both living in retirement homes.  Don’t worry, I’ll still come visit!  😉

Of course now Bunny and Wookiee want to have their say too!

First up, a word from Wookiee:

Holey smokes!  Has it really been one year?  I distinctly remember having a lot of trepidation when Alissa asked if I would join the blog to show off some 2D art and I was certain it wouldn’t work out and I’d be promptly fired.  Fast forward to today and we’re still chugging away and all I can do is be in a state of minor disbelief.  In a lot of ways, TSTO helped me through some really hard times and I’m blessed to have Alissa, Bunny Foo Foo and all of you in my life.

As proud as I am of this site, the fact is, none of this would be possible without all of our awesome, bodacious, amazing, radical, beautiful, sometimes disgruntled, charming, addicted, and (insert compliment here) readers on the site.  Add to that the love and support of two of the sweetest co-writers I could have ever asked for and I’m a lucky fuzzball.  Addicts is a home away from home where I can let my writing urges free.  Some days feel like successes and others, well, they are just days I’m happy to play TSTO among like-minded individuals.

While I’ll admit this game isn’t perfect, I think this community perfectly fits it.  If I could bottle all the happiness I’ve experienced through this site and the TSTO Community, I think I could make the world a better place or at least have a drink to rival Bunny’s water lol.  All of the madness of this last year truly makes me think of an old saying: “We may not have it all together but together we have it all.”

I have had the time of my life in the last year writing and getting to know some of you.  The support we have received from folks is so great and it still makes me feel special that people give a hoot what we have to say about a silly mobile game about cartoon characters.  Just proof that a few goofy kids with a small modicum of talent could build something good and with the help of other goofs keep it going.

Who knows what the future holds but I for one am hoping to write another message like this in a year’s time.  Much love to all from the Wookiee and keep on tapa-tapa-tapping in the free world.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

And for Bunny’s say…

Hey there Hoppereenos. Sheesh, one year? Doesn’t feel like it. I feel like I have known my Fellow Addicts Team and YOU for so much longer. Our amazingly awesome lil dysfunctional family. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I am so grateful Wookiee, my fellow cohort from the early days, vouched for me. Grateful Mark and Alissa took me in and excepted me with open arms. Grateful for the love and support my Team has provided to me through the many dark times as of late. Without them and without the humor and love here from YOU, all our readers…some days would have been unbearable. Enjoy working daily with Alissa and the Fuzzball. (Even enjoy driving Alissa mad with my “humor”.)

I was actually brought to the team on the 21st “officially”. Lol. So my own personal lil anniversary is not too far away. I still remember how happy I was to get the email, welcoming me in. I had wanted to write for a while.

I have a great passion and want to do nothing more than help others, care for others, and always “Pay It Forward”. (And I get to giggle and make others giggle too.) I am so very happy and delighted I found that in the Amazing Team here. I hope to continue on that journey for as long as YOU, the readers, allow me. It is always better to give and I am more than happy to continually give my personal time to this AMAZING Community of players. Even if it only helps just one, I will do all I can to provide it. I will continue to do what I do for YOU. 😉

My Family of Addicts
Much Love

~Bunny

So that’s it from the Addicts crew on this special day!  I made you guys a promise WAYYYYYY back in September of 2013: “My promise to you, our amazing readers, is to ALWAYS provide you with the best content in a fun way.”  And now here we stand 11 months later and I think we’ve done a pretty good job living up to that promise!

So here’s to a great year and many more to come!

Thanks for being a part of TSTO Addicts! 🙂

  1. Happy anniversary. A big thank you to all the great work you are doing. I, like many other tappers, love everything about the site!! Awesome!! 😃👍

  2. Happy Anniversary! I’m such a fan of this blog. I honestly can’t imagine playing TSTO without the info you all provide. Checking in daily (sometimes multiple times daily) before I load the game is part of my “I’m going to play TSTO!” routine. So…thanks!!! And please please please, keep up the great work and never stop living this addiction with us. 🙂

  3. Happy anniversary!

    I started playing just before Easter & found u guys right away while searching for some hints. You three & this community have helped me get more out of this silly lil game than I can say.

    Keep up the wit & the addiction cuz no one does it better!!

  4. #tstoaddicts.com #happy1blogiversary and many more bunny and Wookiee and Alissa this still robertmc814 =)

  5. Congratulations! Happy Anniversary! One year down, twenty-four more to go… until you catch up to ‘The Simpsons’ (though by that time, the show would be at the cusp of their 50th anniversary, oh myyy).

  6. Happy birthday!

  7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Best. Blog. Ever!
    I love how all 3 of you each bring something different and unique to the table in everything you do for the site. SO MANY great post, information, contest and ideas have came from you guys – it’s truly amazing! Always right on top of things as soon as it happens. You still have the patience to answer and help just about every single comment that gets posted, no matter how many times it may have been repeated or even if the answer is already in the post being commented on. Countless amount of people have been helped because of all the hard work and effort you put in. Now it has expanded to whole new website and game! Wow. I still remember when that other site went down and then this one came to life, and now has become even better than anyone could have imagined. Alissa, Bunny, Wookiee, I have a huge amount of respect for all 3 of you. I’m so glad that I have gotten the opportunity to get to know each one of you a little bit and to participate in this wonderful blog. Thank you guys so much for everything!

  8. Happy Birthday and Anniversary! What you guys do is just awesome I sometime read the blog posts and the answers and think you must have the patience of a saint! When I first scrambled upon this site shortly after I had started playing Tapped Out it very quickly became my “bible” whenever your posts pop up in my email box I go check them out and even funnier if there is an update I come here first before I even go into the update to see what the latest news is! I truly think you guys are awesome you make a gaming experience so much more fun! So just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for always providing me with the answers all the way over here in the UK! Here’s to many more anniversaries!

  9. Congrats to all three of you for creating such a great blog that I probably visit a little more than I need to. 😉
    I’ll definitely continue visiting on a daily basis to find out about all things TSTO related as you guys are very informative and helpful. Thanks for dedicating so much of your time on a game a lot of us Tappers can’t get enough of.

  10. A most Happy Anniversary to all of you wonderful kids!

  11. Love you guys!!!! I don’t know if you really ever think about what you have managed to achieve, from the little blog that could, to where things have expanded. I don’t know any of you personally but I am so proud of what you have done 🙂 (bit of mother hen happening). I just love seeing people to good things. I particularly like how you keep the tone “just right”. Every day the posts are fresh and interesting and to be honest, a joy to read. You three have created a world spanning family. How wonderful is that!!!!!
