So, over the past few months I’ve been writing more. Much much more than I have in months, indeed, in years past. I’ve expressed before that I am switching over from making YouTube videos to writing more. I still crank out the occasional video, but at this stage, it’s so much easier to write than it is to film, edit, and upload a video that I save that content for when it is absolutely necessary – when text and images along can’t convey the idea, or the “live” nature of something needs to be preserved.
Right, I’m sure you all get all that, but then what else is there? Am I just going to keep writing about random things from now on? Well, yes, but not without reason.
Obviously I’m going to express what I think, that’s the whole point of such a site, right? How I will go about it is the point of this update. I’ve always been wanting to review games (just like everyone else on the internet, right?) in addition to film and TV, when the mood strikes me. I’ve written a few articles in the past looking at things I have liked, but as it stands these are the oddities in what I do.
Previously I had said I was planning on doing a nostalgia series called “then and now” where I compared games I played in the past to how they play today. I still want to implement this in to the reviews, but it certainly won’t be its own series like I intended.
One of the big issues for me doing these reviews has been how to organize them. WordPress, compounded by the theme I use, made things a little odd for pages. I finally took some time and got that worked out, so we should have a nice, categorized listing of games, movies, and more as they are reviewed. Sure, it will take some time but eventually I should end up with a sizable database of reviews, easily view able from any page, as well as continue writing the random content I do.
I attract a broad audience here, thanks to the site not really having an actual focus. One article might be about a rocket launch, while another might be something Google did wrong, while the next one might be about some 1980’s TV show. You never know what to expect and that’s the thing I think sets me apart – you will always have something new being thrown your way here. I want to continue with that, but also write reviews that I have long sense wanted to push out for you.
More is coming. I’m just going to keep on doing what I can do, and smiling as I see you all share the articles, and testing how new article ideas play out.
