And just like that, 2022 is over. It was another year that we’re better off seeing the back of, and here’s hoping 2023 is a better one for all!

While it was a difficult year in many ways, there were also plenty of highlights along the way. Not least of which was the sheer number of amazing games that were released. It has been wonderful working on the site this year in part because every week there have been interesting things to cover. That in itself has been great for motivation.

It was also the biggest year we’ve ever had at DigitallyDownloaded.net. It was such a big year of milestones and achievements that I’m just going to bullet-point some of the key ones:

  • We totally redesigned the site and finally moved off Blogger to a far better platform.
  • It was the first year of 12 continuous months of publishing the Dee Dee Zine.
  • We were awarded Highly Commended at the Lizzies IT Journalism awards.
  • We sponsored our first event (the Oceania Dancesport Championships in October).

We’ve got so much more to come, too! After such a big year of investment into the site, I am truly excited by what comes next in the year ahead.

However you have been celebrating this holiday season, I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s, and have a lot to look forward to in 2023. DDNet will be back in full swing from January 9 (though we will be publishing articles again from next week), and we look forward to hanging out with you all again!

And don’t forget, you can still grab any Dee Dee Zine issues that you might have missed for 50% off until January 2! Click here and enter the code “MERRYXMASALL” at check out.
