Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Nice. Blogs have fast become the best content area on the site, and the entries on this list really capture that.

It was my life, like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was to let it be.

1) I challenge all of BGG NOT to use the "why I hate X but oh no I really love X and you thought I was going to hate X" cliche in 2013. You can do it. And I say that as a huge fan of Phirax. I hope his court-appointed servitude to BGG continues for another year at least.

2) Jesse, I picture you in a darkened room, stroking a cat on your lap, swirling a glass of scotch while plotting your takeover of the BGG blog world. Like all egotistic plots, it's not worth it, and will prove to be your undoing if you pursue it... Though if you insist, might I recommend a "Why I hate Phirax" blog that really extols his virtues?

3) Blogs are definitely a great improvement on the site IMHO, except when people put reviews out as blogs and dilute that content.

4) Yes, I am aware of the contradiction in 1 and 2 above. I am vast, I contain multitudes!

5) I look forward to more great stuff to distract me at work in 2013, so thanks, all.

I am tempted to totally do #1. I already have a cat. Is a glass of wine a suitable replacement for Scotch?

I go where I am likely to get the most response. Sometime that is my blog, sometimes that is the review forum.

I've certainly enjoyed working on my blog. I do find they are a very time consuming thing to write and edit. Certainly way more work then I originally thought. I've been so impressed with the BGG members that have been so prolific!

I read a lot of GeekLists last year. After checking out some of the top finishers here, I'm definitely going to be reading more blogs in 2013. Especially Jesse's.

She looked at me and this is what she said...

There ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
Ain't nothing in this world for free
No I can't slow down
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
No there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good
