Nice Job Badges! | Week of May 3

It’s time for another week of Nice Job badges! Every blogger deserves recognition for the time and effort they put into their craft. These bloggers just deserve it a little more, that’s all.

Each Thursday I’ll pick out five new blog posts posted within the span of that week — it’s a pentagonal arrangement of excellent publications! Some things:


  • If someone makes an amazing post one week, then makes another the next, I will feature them two times in a row.
  • However, I will not (typically) feature the same blogger twice on one list, unless I’m really blown away. If so, I may give six badges that week.
  • The posts will all be from the current seven day period, though posts made on Wednesdays or Thursdays may overlap with the next week.
  • They must be on WordPress or Jetpack-enabled platforms. I’m sorry Blogger bloggers.
  • It’s perfectly fine to put the badge on your recognized piece with a pingback to this post!
  • Now featuring a weird assortment of colors!
  • They are in no particular order because they’re all great.

Nice Job Gold2Games and Grieving | By Later Levels

Nice job, you’ve obtained this week’s GOLD badge!

I think it’s safe to say that everything Later Levels posts is great – you should really go follow if you aren’t already. But this week we were given a bit of an emotional tour-de-force. Well-researched and cited, I thoroughly enjoyed Kim’s exploration of retreating inside yourself after a loss.

Nice Job CyanSuper Specific Sunshine Award | By Unoriginal (love) noteS

Nice job, you’ve acquired this week’s Cerulean badge!

Anybody who responds to my Super Specific Sunshine Award by delivering additional specific questions deserves a badge! Lizardin Bain wants us to confront the classic trolley problem, live the life of a villain, and live the same life over and over again for eternity. Dark, indeed.

Nice Job GreyChoices Matter Games and Real Life Decisions | By The LDG Mag

Nice job, you’ve secured this week’s Gray/Grey badge!

Recommended by Megan @ A Geeky Gal, this post published today by ladydudegaming looks like it took a lot of work. It’s one of those enchanting long-reads that explores the emotional effects of choices in gaming. Well worth the time.

Nice Job TangerineRecommendation: 5 Stellar Space Operas! | By The Geek at Heart

Nice job, you’ve procured this week’s Neon Carrot badge!

Space operas are my favorite genre of literature/media. That alone gets newcomer The Geek at Heart the nod for a badge. Weirdly, all of the things on the list are #1 — not sure if it’s a typo or a nice touch because they’re all good! Go follow this new and very well-designed blog!

Nice Job dark redDonkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest (1995) | By Mr. Wapojif via The Well-Red Mage

Nice job, you’ve gleaned this week’s Very Deep Red badge!

I can’t imagine there’s anything left for Mr. Wapojif to cover about one of my favorite SNES games. It’s insanely detailed, and I can’t agree more strongly that this game would be a perfect on-the-go title for the Switch.

Did I miss any links you think deserve recognition? Share them with us in the comments!

  1. Thank you so much for featuring me- I’m really touched!! I like to put as much work into my posts as I can so I’m glad to see it’s paying off in some way! I appreciate it. I’m really enjoying looking through the other blogs you’ve featured too. You have a great site.
    (Also, I’m not sure if you can tag people in comments but thank you Megan for recommending me!) :’)

  2. Thank you so so much for this! As a newbie blog, I really appreciate the support. I actually didn’t notice all of the 1s but I like the spin you put on it. I think I will keep the numbers as they are now because they are all number ones in my book!
