Eleven years ago today, I hit publish on the very first blog post here at BadgeHungry! I’m often astounded at how quickly the time flew by even though I remember so clearly the long hours involved in keeping this site online, accurate, and fun for all of these years!
I say this every single year, and I’m going to say it again and again and again: thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for visiting this site. The BadgeHungry community has grown in ways I never could have imagined when I started it as a small Pogo badge-tracking site in 2007. I have loved seeing the site evolve and friendships grow over the years, all from our mutual love of casual games. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In these 11 years, BadgeHungry.com has published 16,995 blog posts and pages, and you’ve left 225,972 comments. The newer Q&A section of the site, started seven years ago in response to community need, has fielded 10,963 questions with 34,538 answers. We still reach almost a hundred thousand people every day via this web site, Facebook, Twitter, the daily email update, and the BadgeHungry Insider newsletter. And our year-old BadgeHungry chat is home to 448 chatters!
Thank you for visiting, thank you for telling your friends about BadgeHungry, thank you for sharing our blog posts with your friends and family, thank you for continuing to send in news and tips, and thank you for continued support and participation.
