Around the Network

Another long weekend! I’m not complaining, though every one of these makes it harder and harder to go back to a full work week.

Lots to share this week: plenty of articles, a few updates on future plans, and the usual shenanigans from around the broader community.

So without further ado, let’s look back at what you might have missed this week…

Dedicated to the Backlog

On Monday, LightningEllen from Livid Lightning and Kim from Later Levels revealed the first #LoveYourBacklog Week: seven days devoted to showing your backlog some love, rather than the fear and guilt it usually engenders.

I’ve never seen the backlog as a particularly negative thing. As Kim argues in her post on the subject, having a backlog means that you always have something to play — something new to experience, something new to explore. And since starting MoeGamer I’ve really relished having this huge library of titles just waiting for me to delve into in detail and write, make videos and otherwise enthuse about them.

Hello! It’s nearly Christmas!

Yes, that most wonderful (and/or stressful, and/or depressing, depending on your own personal life situation) time of the year is just around the corner, many of you reading this will have broken up from work or school, and there’s just a general air of anticipation in the… um… air.

I’ll be taking a brief break from MoeGamer on Monday and Tuesday to enjoy the festivities, but will be back with the rest of the MoeGamer Awards from Wednesday onwards. In the meantime, hit the jump to see what you might have missed this week.

Quick Patreon Update

Hello folks, a full post will be following later today but I just wanted to share a quick update with you.

Those of you who have been following me for a while will know that I used to run a daily personal blog that I updated every single day for 2,541 days. I’ve been missing that as a daily activity recently… so I figured why not combine it with what I’m doing now?

Rather than clogging up MoeGamer with personal posts, I’ve decided to make it a Patreon reward. Pledge $1 or more per month and you can not only support my work here on MoeGamer and help keep the lights on, you can also get to know me a bit better via exclusive updates that only you (yes, you! And, err, a few others, but mostly you!) can enjoy.

Drop by my Patreon page to find out more about how your money helps MoeGamer and Atari A to Z, and to sign up for my updates. Thank you in advance for your support!
