I started Airborne Gamer after having another gaming website with a friend (I’ll tell you what the site is if you ask me : ) But since he set up all the back end stuff and was not as motivated, things moved slow. I didn’t have the control I felt I wanted and needed to be happy running a gaming website, so in March of 2010 I registered the domain AirborneGamer.com and have never looked back!
So just recently, in the past couple of days we’ve crossed the 1,000 post mark, an accomplishment I’m damn proud of. Running a gaming website is fun, challenging and rewarding at the same time. Sure I wanted to make a bit of cash in the beginning and that may still be a possibility in the future (do not be disillusioned with making money with a website, it’s not easy), but I’m just as happy as can be getting free games from time to time courtesy of wise and informed Publishers. Let me break it down for you guys. Since opening shop:
- 1,008 published Posts (Seriously, go page by page through the site…I dare you!)
- 2,141 Legit Comments on Posts
- 2,527 Registered Users
- 13,598 Spam Comments Destroyed!
- 5 Writers
- 32 Games given away to the Community
- 1 Happy Airborne Gamer
Since Reaching the 1000+ post mark there have also been some other major transformations that have taken place around here. We have transitioned from a website failing to cover all the Consoles and PC gaming news out there, to a more focused group of gamers who just cover PC Gaming related jazz. And boy am I glad I made that hard choice. I’m a PC gamer at heart and it just made sense and still does.
So we’re here and we’re here to stay, I just wanted to say thanks for you support guys, keep checking us out and tell your friends. As things continue to grow and evolve we’ll get more and more bad-ass, I can promise you that.
