8 Years of The Girl Who Games

Today I have been blogging for 8 years however it feels very difficult to celebrate after the year I have had. I would firstly like to apologise for being so absent, for those of you who don’t know my mum died in January so this blog hasn’t been my main priority. On this day in previous years my mum made me a ‘Happy Blogday’ cake, my blog anniversary was in her important dates diary so she never forgot. I know a lot of you are still waiting for replies to questions asked long ago and I have no right to say I have been very helpful recently but I am trying hard to change that although to be honest I still have many days where I don’t really want to talk to anyone.

Most importantly I would like to thank all of you for your continued support, some days your kind words really help me get through. It may seem like I have given up on this blog but I have no intention of doing that, in the past couple of weeks I have noticed my motivation returning so hopefully that will continue in the months ahead.

To celebrate 8 years I am holding a Sims Freeplay Create a Sim & Building Contest, click here to find out all about it

  3. Your blog has been very helpful in achieving all the targets and completing the quests. So thank you for your efforts

  4. My most sincere condolences. I know it’s not easy getting over the loss of a a parent. I’ve lost both of my parents . I appreciate you blog and refer to past post often but your life is more important. Take your time we will all be here if and when you are ready.

  5. Hi, I am so sorry to hear your mother past away. In january it will be 20 years since my mother died and it took me well over 10 years to come to terms with it. I think you are doping a terrific job with this blog and I always look forward to it. Thank you from Sweden.

  6. Take it slowly girl, I know how you feel now. Just take as much time as you need. And thank you for all the updates during your difficult time.

  7. I’m sorry about your mom, and I completely understand if you don’t feel like talking and posting some days. I hope 2021 makes a turn around for you and you enjoy the rest of this year!
    PS: Looking at the mouth of my cat in the Sims Freeplay whenever it catches some simoleons or LP always makes me happy, you can try that! (I don’t know why it makes me happy)

  8. Thank you for sharing your mother with us. I agree with others who have commented. It absolutely takes time. The work you’ve done on this blog is so helpful, even if you decide you are done, there’s more than enough information to help all players at all stages. Sending lots of love from the east coast of the USA.

  9. I’ve recently come back to the game after a few years away, and your blog has been a wonderful resource for me again now like it was in the beginning, back in the day. So sorry to hear about your Mum. If we were on the same continent I’d bake you a Blogday cake, but instead I bought you a coffee. Hopefully that will suffice. If you’re into reading (or audiobooks), consider checking out David Kessler’s book, Finding Meaning. It might help. 🌷

  10. Your blog is perfect! It gives me all the information I need to construct, build a skill/hobby and actions. Although I had this for 1 year, I actually love it so much I look at this everyday. Rate: 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000/10.

  11. Happy 8-year anniversary!!!
    It doesn’t feel like you’ve given up. Your devotion to this site & the game is admirable! It has helped me so much over the years! Thank you!
    Keep your head up high!
