Big week for GN. Two new staffers coming on-board to strut their stuff. Can't wait to see how they work out. You'll see content from one of the new guys today! I wish them well and I hope you approve! See you in a few, short hours.
As you may have heard a few weeks back, we were on the hunt to find some new staffers for GoNintendo. Our little Eggmond had grown up and was ready to spread his wings elsewhere. We couldn't keep him home in the nest, no matter how much we'd miss him! Now he's off on his own seeing what he can accomplish, and of course we wish him the absolute best. We'll never forget the time he spent here!
...but the show must move on. A ton of you reached out to apply for the position, and I greatly thank you for those emails. I want to point out that just because we have two staffers trying out this week, it doesn't mean your chances are over! We will see how our new guys work out. If they like the gig and we're happy with the work they're putting out, we'll keep them on. If not, we'll continue the hunt with other submissions from you guys. Even if BOTH of these guys knock it out of the park, we can always use more help. What I'm trying to say is, don't give up hope!
For now though, I'd like to introduce our two brand-new staffers. This week you're going to be seeing posts by both Yoshiller and BR. They've been given a rundown of how things work on GN and now comes their trial by fire! It's certainly a lot to take on in just one week, so I'm sure there will be some issues and mistakes along the way. That's okay with me though, as that will only help our newcomers to learn how things work! Hell, I still make mistakes on a daily basis!
All I ask is that you guys treat these two gentleman nicely. They're really putting themselves out there and running head-first into a brand new situation. That's scary as hell, but I can promise that they only want to make GN the best it can be. They're doing away with free time and other aspects of their lives to bring you Nintendo news in the mornings. I truly appreciate that, and I'm sure you guys will end up feeling the same way!
So with all that said, a warm welcome to both Yoshiller and BR. I'm sure you'll both make fantastic additions to the team.
