Happy Birthday to Gamester81.com!

Today marks the one year anniversary for Gamester81.com!  With over 600+ posts and well over 100,000 total visitors, I wanted to personally thank everyone of you for your continued support for the site.  I also want to give a big thank you to all of the contributors to the site, because without them sharing their awesome content to the site, Gamester81.com just wouldn’t be the same.

I have some big plans for Gamester81.com with some exciting changes that will be happening in the near future.  We launched the new Gamester81 Forum section last month, and already there are over 540 members! I encourage you guys to check it out if you haven’t done so already and join in on the conversations.

Primarily because of word out mouth the site is growing over 15% every month, and I appreciate all of you continuing to spread the word about Gamester81.com.  It truly means a lot to me and everyone who is a part of it.

Thanks again everybody, and I look forward to seeing what this next year has in store for the site.
