I tend to skim the gaming headlines, and am more likely to read the tech news stories.

Thanks for your continued efforts keeping this site up, Blue!

Yup. Inevitably I'll pick up most of the gaming news elsewhere, if I really care, but the tech/other stuff? I don't have time to go to tons of different sites (although you wouldn't know it for how often I post here), so it's extremely nice to be able to count on Blue's judgment in aggregating interesting links rather than having to go to Ars or whatever a few times a day.

I tend to hit Engadget, thisismynext, and Blues regularly, with a few non-tech/gaming sites mixed in. Blues gives me far more variety than those sites, but thisismynext gives me more editorial and context.

I really, really appreciate Blues for the variety and for the judgment in what stories to cover. But I understand it may not be the best or flashiest for traffic. I think we're kind of an old-person's site, with our roots in the 1990s worn happily on our sleeves. It fits us, but it may not be the best for revenue, if that's a consideration. If the goal is the "best" site, not the "busiest" site I'm very happy with it as-is.
