1.000 Posts Old

At the beginning of this week we published our 1.000th post. And our website has not even been live for 100 weeks yet. Athena wrote 72% of them (yes, that's over 7 posts a week), I did 20% and Zerbique is at 8% (except he joined just a short while ago, so actually he wrote over 4 posts a week since then). A post will take two hours of research and writing on average, which makes over 20 hours a week. Huh.



Here's a breakdown:


News


Crowdfunding: 600 posts

Retail: 125 posts


Session reports


Table Presence: 134 posts - having some overlap with

PnP Picks: 43 posts


Editorials


Grumpy Gamer: 49 posts

The Owl, The Monkey and The Bat: 30 posts


And then we had series like Shelf Expression, End Times, Home Alone and Lazy Links (archived).


Wix thinks we should hire a professional though

We also publish the news posts on our Facebook page, show what we're playing on Instagram and engage in the very lively Loners Lounge.


It's real nice to hang out with you all! We're off to another 1,000.

I am very grateful for all the hard work you guys do. I am also appreciative of the great community surrounding this website. As a relatively new solo gamer (since May of last year) I would have been completely lost without the Solitaire Times. Through this site I learned of so many upcoming new kickstarters, previews, reviews/opinions, etc. But ultimately I get to share the passion and love of games through you. It is a joy to read all of your experiences because it further enriches my own. 🍻 Cheers and let the good times roll!

Thanks for the kind words, and for the many times you interact on our website. It's all a labour of love, so comments mean a lot to us

Yes, ST (Superbly Tremendous) is the go-to Solo Site for anyone 'in the know'. Moritz and Derek pegged it: humor, attitude, positive, fun, interesting. And I never get any grief for being weird! Gotta love it!


Since I discovered ST, most of my game related 'surfing' has transferred from BGG to the superior ST. BGG has a shit-load of 'data', but for the reasons Moritz and Derek pointed-out, when you start siftin', ST rises to the top!


I think it was Z who mentioned we're becoming a family of sorts. I NEVER felt that on BGG, and Z was right (for me, anyway), I feel as if I belong (I haven't been shunned yet!).


ST has an essence that BGG…

I don't think so. Most will have other interests. We may have some immature readers though. And at least one immature writer. 🤪

Huge congrats you guys!! Very well deserved, and I'm sure you'll be at the next 1000 posts sooner than you think!


I'll continue to say it - You've created an amazing community here at ST; so positive, fun and interesting. I can't say enough good things about what you both (and Zerbique) are doing! 😊
