Is this one of the best LGBT blogs in the world?

I seriously doubt it, but who am I to argue with the fine folks at the Manchester, England-based Lesbian & Gay Foundation? :)

Here's a bit of background, in case I've already lost you: In late June, the Lesbian & Gay Foundation posted to its site a list of "The 100 Best LGBT Blogs." Somehow, my little 'ol (hardly ever updated) blog made the cut.

I originally thought the folks at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation just Googled "gay blog" and based their list on the first 100 search results, but then I read the commentary (written by Grahame Robertson - not sure who he is, sadly) that accompanied the mention of my blog:

“Not only did I have to struggle with coming out as a gay man, I’m also a closet gamer too! Luckily, there’s a burgeoning gay gaming community out there, and this excellent blog - written by a gay gamer in Washington – is a great mix of tongue-in-cheek humour, real enthusiasm for the subject, and politics (check out his coverage of Microsoft’s recent run-in with the gay gaming community). Would love to see it updated a bit more frequently though.”

Thanks to the Lesbian & Gay Foundation and especially to Grahame, I plan on posting to this blog much more frequently from now on :)

BTW, you're probably wondering why I'm only posting this news now. Well, to be honest, I didn't know I had made the the Lesbian & Gay Foundation's list until this morning, when someone posted a congratulatory comment to this site!

Congrats, I just recently found your blog, and I am already starting to be a fan of it. I can see why you made it on the list.

I've been following your blog for a coupla weeks now but I wouldn't have known it existed if it weren't for the L.G.F's list. Anyway though, congratulations.

Thank you, Digital Freya and kye! It seems the LGF list not only gained me a few readers, but gave me a kick in the pants. I'll do my best to keep the momentum going :)

Well hooray for that! I certainly hope it increses your traffic and gets more LGBT gamers to come visit the blog! It would be sweet to have a thriving community here.

Thanks, Justin! I hope it brings more readers, too. Of course, I should probably post more so they have a reason to come back, right? Fingers crossed that I can keep it going for once :)
