Catching up the Tenkar's Tavern Chat Podcast last night (episode 520) and he mentioned an incredible resource over at Dragons Never Forget: a blog roll review of over 450 active gaming blogs.
So, I popped over to check it out and start hunting for fresh blogs to add to my own blogroll, when I came across the author's unexpected - and lovely - review of HeroPress:
"Since HeroPress first burst on to the hobby well over 13 years ago it has become the powerhouse blogger producing an astounding average of 1,117 posts a year! The author is constantly bringing up everything they love: cosplay, roleplaying games, monsters, funny stories, beautiful and inspiring pictures, and so much more. The archives are massive and there’s so much here that you could disappear inside them for months only to come out and be buried all over again! Updates: 145 posts a month! Unbelievable!"Goodbye, impostor syndrome! Recognition from my peers is never sought, but is always welcome.
Just to be included in this list is a fillip to the old morale. I've always thought of my blog as a gaming blog, but was never convinced others did as well.
So, this has done wonders for my confidence.
If you're a gaming blogger then you need to visit The 2019 Great Blog Roll Call!, to see what blogs you've been missing out on.
Dragons Never Forget is the new online home of Charles A, formerly of Dyvers.
He explains that the purpose of his blog roll is to:
"...make things easier for people to discover new blogs, old favorites, and read where our hobby is going before it gets there."An engine of positivity, Charles is a veritable cheerleader for the hobby. I love, for instance, his commentary on my good friend Justin's Halls Of The Nephilim blog:
"His writing often reminds me a good friend who’s got a fun little idea they’d like to get you in on – that probably ends with the two of you broke, covered in mud, and with one hell of a great story."Seriously, bookmark Charles's blog roll post - you'll be returning to it throughout the year... until he posts his next update to the roll of honour!
