Blog Milestone Thank-You Steam Key GIVEAWAY! (Over 100 keys available)

I created Backlog Crusader on April 25th and in only two months, thanks to the support of nerdy friends, family, and a great WordPress community, we’ve managed to reach 200 wordpress followers, 5,000 visitors, and 10,000 views. That’s basically absurd for a totally unknown, brand new gaming blog, and it’s all because of you guys!

It’s time to give back. As a celebration and a thank you to my amazing readers and fellow writers, I’m doing a giveaway from my Steam Key Loot Vault of over 100 keys that need a good home. They aren’t triple A titles or anything, but I’m sure some will be of interest. There’s definitely some indie favorites in there that you might not have tried yet!

Rising Stars – Gaming Blogger Spotlight #1

These days gamers tend to consume video game reviews, information, and related gaming entertainment in video format on sites like Youtube or Twitch, but we still have an enthusiastic editorial gaming community here on WordPress!

I wanted to make it easier for gaming writers to connect with the gaming blogger community, so I’m starting a little series called “Rising Stars” where veteran bloggers and readers alike can discover and welcome new or relatively unknown gaming writers into the community. I hope this will help to encourage and support individuals as well as maintain the health of the gaming blogger community overall.

Let’s take a look at this week’s first five Rising Stars!

Reminder: Video Game Literary Classics 101 Collab entries due soon!

For those still planning to participate in the Video Game Literary Classics 101 community collab, please try to get your posts in by Monday. I have been commenting on each entry that pingbacks to the original collab post, so if you did not receive a comment from me, please assume I missed it and poke me again. I just got back from a two week vacation and hopefully none slipped through the cracks while I was checking on things from mobile.

If you are a new gaming blogger community member wanting to participate or someone needing a little more time, please let me know ASAP. I’ll be working on the final collab post for a week or two so a little late is totally doable. (Already heard from one or two about late entry.)

Entries so far have been fabulous and I’m looking forward to putting together the final “syllabus”!

Support Backlog Crusader on Patreon – $1 a month is less than what’s stuck below your sofa cushions! Plus you get Discord access!
