Well the site has been running for about a week and a half now and things couldn’t be off to a better start.  I want to thank everyone who has come out to the site so far.  I hope that you have had as much fun reading the editorials and reviews and listening to the podcasts as I have had putting them all together.  One of the best feelings you get as a writer is knowing that people are reading and enjoying your writing.  Well, this letter is to all of you who have supported The Exclaiming Gamer so far.
