GoNintendo Thought: A thank-you to YOU!

Reader appreciation day!

Been awhile since I've done one of these posts, which means it's about time I got to one! Always important to share stuff like this. As always, thanks for reading.

Those who have been with GoNintendo for a long time know that I really value the community here. At least I hope they know that! I always make a point to put together something to show my appreciation for you guys and your support of the site. Sometimes that's a podcast discussion, a Facebook post, a Tweet, or so on. Today it's a good, old post right here on GoNintendo.com.

I've been running GoNintendo, in one form or another, for roughly 18 years now. That's nearly half of my life! I've been working away on this site to bring you the latest Nintendo news, videos, reviews, and more day in and day out. While it's certainly time-consuming, it's been an absolute honor and privilege as well. Without a doubt, I owe that honor and privilege to each and every one of you.

Some of you have been here since day one, and others just popped in a month or two again. No matter what the case is, I want to thank you for your support. Thank you for visiting the site, retweeting our stories, liking our posts on Facebook, supporting our Patreon, and so on. What I do every single day is only possible because of you guys. What I do for a living simply wouldn't be possible without you guys at my back. Somehow I managed to get lucky enough to fall in with you wonderful group of people, and you've been supporting me and what I do all along.

I want to stress that not a day goes by where I'm not appreciative of what I get to do for a living. I went from being a Nintendo fan as a kid to covering Nintendo as an adult. I get to follow Nintendo more closely than ever, work with them on projects, and bring you all sorts of info every single day. It's just as mind-boggling today as it was when I first started. I could have never dreamed anything like this would happen. As a matter of fact, I never did! I had a completely different plan for life in my mind, but GoNintendo swooped in and took things over.

I'll never be able to thank you enough for your support, kind words, patronage, and so on. I've never been able to fathom just how lucky I am. Every time I think about it, I start to tear up. You guys are deeply tied to almost everything I do in a day. From my work to my personal life, you guys have impacted it in some way. That's an unbelievable feeling to experience, and equally overwhelming in a million different wonderful ways. There aren't enough words to express just how much you guys mean to me.

I could ramble on forever, but I don't want to waste your time. Long story short, thank you for everything. Thank you for following me on this journey, and for making it possible. As long as you guys are still here, I'll keep pushing ahead, doing what I do. It's my pleasure to be here running GoNintendo, and I can only hope that our coverage puts a smile on your face like the one you all put on mine every single day.

Thank YOU, dude! I have loved this site for years and have it bookmarked on every device I own, including my work devices. There are some great Nintendo sites out there that us fans get to enjoy but this is definitely the best.

Phew... I'm glad this post didn't end with some sad news like you were gonna close this site down. But no, thank YOU for all the work you do. I think I started visiting this site since the DS days, and I've rarely skipped a day of visiting this site. I know I can count on Team GoNintendo for all the latest Nintendo news. And as a wrestling fan, throwing those little bits of Nintendo-related wrestling news is an added bonus.

Please continue to doing the great job that you all have been doing all these years!

I'm glad you get to do this, because I don't know where else I would feel any more confident about getting my news from! It's such a welcoming experience and always has been. Thank you and your crew!

You deserve it! *clap clap clapclapclap*

Thanks for caring so much about your readers and listeners, RMC. I originally came to GoNintendo for news but I can get that in a lot of different places. You’re the reason I keep coming back.

RMC, you run a news site just the way I like it. I'll keep coming back to GoNintendo for as long as it's here.

Thank you for all your hard work! I'd actually be interested in knowing what you said your plans were before GoNintendo. Prog Rock star? Sea captain? Your beard is all I have to speculate by.

Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this site!

Although I am not as active in the community as I used to be, I still visit every day and consider this to be the #1 Nintendo site. Thank you for all you do.

Was it to be an exotic dancer? Is that where "Raw Meat" came from?

GoNintendo is now my favorite Nintendo gaming news related ever. It used to be Nintendolife...but they went down and don't do as much news as GoNintendo does.

You folks at GoNintendo are awesome. Keep up the effort!

You're a good guy RMC.

And you're also my favourite member of ZZ Top. ❤️

Best gaming site on the internet.
Raw Meat thanks to you and your family and friends, you have given so many people tons of joy.
Keep it going!!
