Happy Musings Thursday my friends! This week I’m musing about birthdays. With the littlest Addict turning 1 yesterday, I’ve been thinking about how quickly time has flown by! So quickly, in fact, I completely forgot to mention a big milestone around here that happened 2 weeks ago. TSTO Addicts turned SIX! Since I forgot to talk about it a couple of weeks ago, I’ve got some thoughts on it now, so let’s get to ’em…
Wowser, August 14th marked the 6th anniversary of TSTO Addicts. I honestly can’t believe it! Some days it feels like we’ve been doing this forever, and other days it seems like we just started yesterday. No matter how long it’s been, let’s be honest, I don’t think anyone thought we’d still be doing this 6 years later. 6 years of blogging about a silly little game. Wow. I’m not sure what I’m in more disbelief of, that wow we’re still around after all this time or wow, we’re still doing this?!
Crazy to think when this all started no one thought TSTO would still be going strong all these years later, let alone a blog about TSTO. Hell, I don’t think anyone thought The Simpsons would still be on TV. But here we all are, 6 years later still alive and kicking.
I know I make jokes about being tired, and that you guys drive me nuts sometimes (ok most of the time), but the truth is I’m really proud of what we’ve created here. When I first started this site, I never in a million years thought this site would make it to two years, let alone 6. The accomplishment of that isn’t lost on me. Nor is the fact that we’re the only TSTO blog, of the originals that started in 2013 still around. I don’t know if I just have a deep passion for this community, or I’m really that nuts. (I like to think it’s a little of both)
Seriously guys, it seems like just yesterday this “little blog that could” started as a crazy idea and here we stand more than half a decade later still plugging away. As you may have heard me say over the years when we set out to create the site we wanted to be different. There were a TON of TSTO blogs that popped up all around the same time. So really you could have gone anywhere to get the same basic information. So, we wanted to do things no one else was doing. We wanted something with more personality. We wanted to laugh. Now here we are all these years later and I think we’ve achieved our goals!
Over the last 6 years, we’ve shared a lot of laughs and a lot of frustration, but this site would not be what it is today without you amazing readers! As I’ve always said, 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!
So we’ll still hang around as long as the game keeps going, and you guys keep showing up! And whenever I start to think about hanging up my TSTO writing cap I’ll reflect back on what this community has meant to all of us over the years and how proud I am to have been a small part of what’s TSTO Addicts has become!
And that’s it guys, my latest round of random TSTO Musings. Thoughts? Care to share your own musings on the topic? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
