Hey folks! Sorry this blog has been so quiet lately! My efforts have been a little erratic as far as writing goes. I want to start this back up again, so here’s an update of where I am at right now.
Front Towards Gamer is going great for me. I went with the gang from their to PAX as press, and it was an amazing experience. I have been doing some experimenting with different style of writing to see what I enjoy doing, and what generates the most response. I’ve been doing PC news articles 3 times a week or so, and they average about 200 hits each. They are fairly easy to write, and once in awhile they get a couple thousand hits, which is really cool. I’m always reading the news, so it’s easy to write up a quick blurb about it and add some of my always fascinating comments.
Off the Beaten Path was an experiment in older games blogging. I mostly play games that are somewhat dated, and I wanted to find a way to talk about them. It’s evolving away from being like a review, and more towards the games unique features and how they could be applied in other games. Doing it weekly really isn’t gonna happen, but I would like to possibly do it monthly. FTG might not be a good fit for it either. They take quite awhile to put together and haven’t really gotten much response. For now, that will be a secondary project.
My reviews and previews seem to be doing really well. I really love the way my review on Dragon Age 2 turned out. I think I really have improved at reviewing over the last year. Look forward to more reviews coming out from me this year.
I want to branch out into movie and music reviews too. I’m not sure where they will go just yet, but it’s something else that will keep me writing daily.
I have penned a couple of short stories lately, which will be going up somewhere on the internet soon. I might start a tumblr for those. I also have a rough idea for a novel that I might start soon.
Oh, and I haven’t given up on game design either! “Caliburn” is still a thing, and it’s still secret. You’ll hear more about that over the summer.
So anyway, I just wanted to let you know that all is well with me.
Keep on gaming people!
