TouchArcade is only 9 days shy of our first anniversary with our first blog post back in March 12, 2008 -- four months before the App Store opened. While there wasn't nearly as much to talk about then, we've worked hard over the past year to bring you the best content about gaming on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The site has quickly grown into the largest iPhone gaming news and review site with traffic of well over 3.7 million page views and 230,000 unique people per month.

I've personally been involved in "blogging" for over 9 years and take the task quite seriously. While I'm certain that our regular readers trust that our editorial process is objective, I can also reassure any new readers that we've always kept our editorial recommendations and coverage independent of our advertisers. In the end, I think our site record speak for itself.

Like almost all blogs on the internet, however, we are advertising funded and we appreciate the support of our sponsors. We certainly do ask our readers to support our sponsors since they provide the site with the funds to further expand and improve coverage. That said, we always clearly delineate advertising and editorial content.

And with that, we'd like to thank our advertisers from February 2009:

TouchArcade will be at the Game Developer's Conference later this month. Contact, advertising, exclusive release opportunities are detailed on our contact page.

    Blake, Arn, have a beer and take the 12th off to just relax(and catch up on your Zen Bound and Sway) and maybe go clubbin':D Seriously, Touch Arcade is THE premier site for all the Appstore gaming info. Alot of us spend just as much time on here B.S.ing than we do playing iDevice games.

    And a note to any who have questioned the integrity and fairness of reviews............find somewhere else to lurk and insult people.

    Thank you guys.
