(Coffee & Swiping is a random news-y/blogg-y article about the gaming industry and everything in between. It’s basically an excuse for Noen to ramble on about anything and everything that has to do with nothing.)
It’s been awhile since I bullshitted with everyone over coffee, so I figured I’d take some time this morning to talk about things. In case you’re wondering, I’m drinking some really fancy Maxwell House Dark Roast fresh out of the coffee maker. I’m pretty sure I got the coffee on sale this week too. Plus, I had a coupon. Yea, it’s fancy af here at SNAPP Headquarters!
Anyway, let’s talk about my bare chest for a moment…..
So, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what’s going on with the whole SNAPPZILLA/SNAPP Attack thing. (If not, then just picture me shirtless for a few minutes.) So, a couple weeks ago, Apple changed up a lot of shit on their end that completely broke the Roundup. Luckily, everything worked on SNAPP Attack for some reason. Since then, I’ve been duplicating articles and publishing them on both sites (minus the SNAPP Roundup).
Long story short, everything will be going to the SNAPP Attack website from now on. It’ll still be mainly focused on mobile games, but it’ll also have Switch reviews and news on the video game industry as a whole. I’m pretty much just stating the obvious right now. (I like to ramble.) Regardless, it’ll still be the mediocre writing and tasteless jokes you’ve grown to love.
The other thing you’ve probably noticed is the addition of a new writer. As you all know, I’m pretty much swamped everyday with SNAPP. Between scouring the App Store for new and old snuggets, working on the Roundup, writing reviews, social media, email, Discord, etc. It’s honestly non-stop. So, Rob (@SuperLobster06) has joined the SNAPP Family and has been helping with reviews in his spare time. I’m not sure how long he plans on writing for SNAPP, but he has been a tremendous help and is an excellent writer! (Plus, I’m sure you guys are getting sick of hearing from me.)
Let’s see. Anything else? Oh, I’ve been “testing the system” with the SNAPP Roundup the past few days, so last week’s list kind of got messed up. Everything should be fine going forward. I’ve got a few more tests to run, but nothing major like last week. I’m just trying to make the site as reliable as possible for the future.
That’s honestly about it. Of course, I need to plug the SNAPP Patreon. Unfortunately, big corporations (Google) have been forcing small content creators to fend for themselves when it comes to revenue. Ad revenue does absolutely nothing until you start hitting HUGE numbers. With SNAPPZILLA not writing clickbait articles, it’s next to impossible to pull up on search engines. I haven’t even been putting ads in articles lately. That’s where you come in. Yes, YOU! If you can afford it and appreciate all the work that goes into SNAPP on a daily basis, please support our work in any way you can. Everything helps keep the lights on!
I know this was kind of a boring C&S, but my fancy hipster coffee is about gone and it’s time for me to get back to work. Have a great weekend everyone and keep on swiping!!
