Well, aside from the gloomy Wednesday I have been having, I would like to announce to the world that it is the official one year anniversary of Otaku Gamer Zone! We started this website one year ago today (not quite at this time of day however) and it has been such an interesting experience. We started out looking very different and had a very enthusiastic outlook on blogging and developing into a website. Least to say, we changed our format up and tried for a very professional look but yet still retained our way of throwing up articles in an almost haphazard way. I do not have anything special planned nor do I have the time to throw up a quick celebration video. Instead I will be busy working on several articles and trying our best to hammer out our recently launched Patreon campaign! It will be a bit of a doozy but it will be well worth it or I at least hope that it will be.
The campaign trail for OGZ was a long time coming and it was a labor of love to get it past the one year hurdle. I had fears that this attempt would end up like every other attempt before it. This is at least the fifth iteration of an attempt by myself to get a site up and running. While I did have a few dry spells here and there, they were not as disastrous as my other attempts, I.E. simply forgetting about the site or just not feeling the motivation to pursue them. The year did go by rather fast and it did leave me quite satisfied. I was able to become an ambassador for an amazing boxed program, I got access to press material at a convention I adore and it has allowed me to approach and talk with individuals with whom I admire and aspire to be like. Heck, we even got Crimson to help write for us and edit this year! While I have yet to actually work her, she will hopefully be an awesome addition to OGZ! Thank you so much for joining!
With year two upon us I do wish to challenge this website. I want to make this year bigger and better than the last. Do I have a specific end goal? No. I just want to make sure that I can have something to look forward to in the coming months. Whether that is another convention, bigger and better articles, more industry news or maybe even appearing as a guest! The possibilities are truly endless and I would frankly prefer to be thoroughly surprised. This website has continued to surprise me and be both a joy and a pain at times. I do want to stand by our non-official motto in saying that we will bring you the best of anime, gaming and everything in-between. Thank you to each and everyone of you for supporting OGZ through its first year and we hope to continue earning your support! If you feel like supporting us more feel free to check our Patreon or even apply for a position at OGZ (Note it will be on a volunteer basis)! If not then, we still love you all the same!
