Would you believe it, but Nologam is nearly a year old already. It has grown up so fast, that I have actually lost track of what’s happening and that is…sorta bad.
In all my time of running a community site like Gamers and Geeks, I have never had this much activity. In nearly 12 months, we have got about 80+ members…not one of them are spam bots…they are genuine people who have signed up to a community and made it what it is today.
In May, I took on a couple of people who were willing to help me with the running of the site, generate some ideas on how to improve the site and even gain new members. It has been the best decision that I have made and it was worth it. They have put in a lot of effort with the site and I greatly appreciate it. It’s so great to have someone, at least one person, to help with something as big as a community.
Now, I am meeting new people everyday and they are willing to help me with improvements, from a server refresh to re-branding Nologam just makes me want to cry in happiness.
I had lost track of what happened with my community when I left for London last Monday when I didn’t have access to a computer for most of the week and then getting sick when I came back, but the community still went on without me and it felt awesome that I didn’t have to be there to keep the site going.
Back when I was trying to get Gamers and Geeks off the ground…I would spend hours on end trying to get genuine members on the site, but it never worked…with Nologam, it has.
So, here is a tip from me in order to get a community going: Get a friend, get talking and make awesome. A community is not just about YOU. It’s about everyone around you also.
