Cluechaser: The Best Interactive Puzzle Contest on the Web

Cluechaser Fans

There are times when I don’t really enjoy working on the Cluechaser site. It takes a lot of time and energy to keep it updated and each blog post usually takes me several hours to put together. I don’t mind doing this but then I look at the amount of visitors the site gets and it discourages me. It is quite dismal. I never expected to get famous doing this but I had hoped it would be a more popular site.

Then there are days when I absolutely love what I do. Today is one of those days and let me tell you why.

Over the past few days I’ve been tinkering with the site to see if I can increase it’s ranking in Google, by far the most popular search engine in the world. I did some things that will hopefully help more of the pages, especially the puzzle pages, show up in search results. Today I tested it out by typing just Cluechaser into the search bar. I was happy to see that many of the results were my puzzles. While scanning through the images I found several that were not mine. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I have fans.

No, not this kind of fans….

But rather this kind….

Okay okay, I obviously doctored that picture for my own benefit but I did find some real live pictures created by fans of Cluechaser. Here are a few of my favorites:

Here are few that are done in the style of those motivational posters you see in office buildings and such. They promote the upcoming Game 3: Chasing Shadows puzzle contest.

And finally, some more motivational type posters:

These last two are my favorites:

Seeing something like this really lifts my spirits. It’s because of Cluechaser fans that I persevere and continue to find the energy and the will to finish creating the remaining puzzles for Game 3: Chasing Shadows. I know it’s been a long time in the making and those few dedicated Cluechasers out there have been very patient. I thank each and every one of them for their loyal support. I feel very strongly that the game will be ready before the end of the year. If all goes according to plan it will be the best puzzle contest yet. I’m confident you won’t be disappointed. It will be quite a challenge.
