HeroPress is apparently the 53rd most important blog and/or website for roleplayers... according to Feedspot's Top 100 RPG Blogs And Websites for Role-Playing Gamers in 2018 chart.

I'd love to think I was - or could be, anyway - but even by my own maths (counting the number of RPG tagged posts, and some of those are just wishful thinking) barely 22 per cent of my posts are gaming related.
Cobbled together by a gentleman called Anuj Agarwal, this top 100 (which only includes 85 sites!) is a strange cocktail of RPG blogs, Reddits, podcasts, video game blogs, YouTube channels etc
According to Feedspot, its rankings are conjured up by a combination of:
The esteemed Tenkar's Tavern (which ranks #25) has written several articles about this strange list, namely here, here, and, most recently, here.
- Google reputation and Google search ranking
- Influence and popularity on Facebook, twitter and other social media sites
- Quality and consistency of posts.
- Feedspot’s editorial team and expert review
I'd love to believe there was some merit to this list - and HeroPress really was an important site for gamers - but given that Kurt Wiegel's Game Geeks only comes in at number 68, Hero Kids is number 61, and Lamentations of The Flame Princess is number 73, as just a trio of examples of sites listed below HeroPress, I'm not really buying it.
However, if nothing else, there are some sites on this list that are new to me and I will eventually get round to visiting.
