Happy 2nd Birthday PlayStation.Blog!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jun 11, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

With all the shock of an alarm clock jolting us out of our sleep in the middle of the night, we’ve been informed that today, June 11th, is the PlayStation.Blog‘s 2nd birthday.

We’ve been very busy with E3 and stuff, but “Yay!”

PlayStation.Blog launched 2 years ago today to a pretty huge reception. In that time, I think we’ve gone from a “good first step” to a full-fledged social media program, with a robust Facebook community, fun community meetups, and enough Twitter followers to make Jamie Kennedy jealous. Watch out, Shaq, we’re coming for ya.

But in all seriousness, the time does fly, and I think it’s because of our very involved readership (this means YOU) that keeps us motivated and busy. In the last year, we’ve redesigned and added features, spawned a new European brother, survived a 20,000 comment onslaught, and adopted our very own Chris Morell (seriously, he sleeps here at night). And we’re working on some new features and integrations that, a year from now, should make today’s blog look very… 2007.

So, yes, thank you for reading, commenting, @replying, attending, subscribing, and, in general, doing what you’ve been doing to make this site what it is.

OK, that’s enough back-patting, now we’d like to go back to sleep. Er, work.

-Jeff

Great, we have another year to wait for new features and integrations, i wish you guys would stop hyping things up especially if it’s a year away, why even bother telling us about something that is a year from now? i guess that’s part of the 10 year life cycle of the ps3, it’s gonna take 10 years for us to get what we’ve been asking for a long time now.

I found out about the blog 6, maybe 12 months ago, and it quickly became my #1 site for PS news.

You guys do a great job, and I am excited each day to see what you have for us. Thanks!

This blog has proved a timely way of communicating about all things Playstation, and I am thankful.

Over the months that I have been a regular viewer of this blog, there have been a lot of recurring questions; Would it be possible to have a periodic Q&A blog entry where many of these recurring, yet unanswered could be addressed?

Chris sleeps at the PSB office?! We should pitch in and get that poor man a futon to have at the PSB. The Cot can’t be comfortable and those chairs weren’t made for sleeping in.

Hopefully for the future you’ll consider changing the overly dark look of this blog though. It creates a negative atmosphere. Especially when comparing it to the stylish and bright EU blog.

HAPPY B-DAY JEFF, CHRIS AND PS BLOG TEAM! It was kick-rear (LOL on the PC terms) to meet you guys all at E3!

My suggestion for the new year: increase the content in Qore and find a way to increase the connection between Qore and PS Blog–like have the PS Blog still be free and Qore be an advanced subscription to the PS Blog—I think that’d help Qore get more love and, quite frankly, Qore’s still growing and could take some pointers on how you guys run the show—it seems like the PS Blog is more efficient atm.
