It was 10 years ago today, April 19, 2003, that I started this blog on the servers at RIT where I was a returning student, studying for a degree in Information Technology with a concentration in Games. It wasn't until later in 2004 that I finally got my act together and decided to write about the free browser games that were just beginning to become a "thing", but my initial "Hello World" post celebrates its 10th anniversary today.
Over the years the site grew in size by including additional writers, most of whom have been regular readers of the site, and that allowed me to move behind the scenes to take a more administrative and managerial role. Today the site is so much more than I could have ever accomplished on my own that it doesn't feel right anymore talking about it in the first person.
Everyone here at JIG is thankful and grateful to our wonderful, supportive community for hanging with us and watching us grow over the past 10 years. Your comments, your feedback, and your visits have been our sustenance, our reason to keep doing what we love to do most: bringing you the very best games we can find on this planet we all call home.
Here's to the next 10 years! :D
