I remember it like it was yesterday. On a cool fall morning I boot up my computer to an incoming Skype call from Angry Joe. I applied to be a writer for Blistered Thumbs when it was launching and Joe was calling to tell me all about this position. It was one of the most surreal moments of my life as I was about to be exposed to a whole new side of video games I never thought possible. Over the last 2 years I’ve done things and met people that have changed my life. I owe that to Blistered Thumbs and the awesome folks at Channel Awesome. Unfortunately, today is my last day as a writer for the site.
BT has always been a beloved hobby for me and I’ve really enjoyed contributing to the site. However, life’s responsibilities have grown too much for me to continue. Currently, I work as a PR and Community manager for a startup social games company. A position I attribute to getting in large part to my work here at BT. I have to give special thanks to Joe Vargas for giving me this opportunity and Holly Brown for being so supportive during my time.
Reading your comments has always brought a smile to my face and made me want to keep writing more. Thank you to the readers for that. I’ve made countless friends and memories through BT that will last a lifetime. For that, I’m truly grateful. I hope to return to the site some day, but until then this is goodbye.
Thank you, everyone.
