How Do You Come up with Posts about Video Games?

Is it enough to simply play video games, or do you also need deep reflection?

Do you find yourself inspired to write about video games without even playing them?

Take Me to Video Game Land

I finished all that boring work that made me feel like I was trapped. And I’m over a nasty case of bronchitis. I’m thrilled all of that is behind me, but I’m even more thrilled about the prospects awaiting me. Onward I will go to Video Game Land¹ and all the joy that comes with play!

Oh, and my first act upon returning to the throne of Video Game Land shall be to address age old blog comments. Sorry for the delay.

¹ Note: not an actual land.

Sorry, My Blog Lost Power

dangling power linesDear readers,

Last Sunday my apartment and my blog lost power. Tree branches collapsed under their own weight because of their thick coats of ice. Power lines dangled like deadly snakes in some areas.

I was volunteering, wrapping gifts and dealing with the power outage. There was no way I could post about – let alone play – video games. It wasn’t going to work.

I love writing. I love reading others’ work. I set out to publish a post every week, and I’ve done that for over a year now. So it hurt a little when I couldn’t do that last week.

But I got over the hurt fast. In my city, there were thousands of people during Christmas – and there are still some – without power. They’re the people who need help.

Also, I’ll publish two short blog posts today to make up for last Sunday. I spoil you. You know that, right?

What crazy things have happened to you while publishing a post? Have you ever lost power when you were blogging? How did you cope?

Thanks for Reading This

video game blog 100 hundred followsI have an urge to be creative. I get up in the morning, as the alarm buzzes in my ears, and want to do something great.

But I don’t sculpt statues and don’t lift heavy objects. Toolboxes, bricks, and easels aren’t necessary for me.

Instead, I use pens, keyboards and a mouse. Ok, for those keeping count, this is my metaphorical toolbox. This toolbox doesn’t matter too much; any pen will do. Perhaps I would care about these items if I was a keyboard designer or engineer, but I’m not. In truth, these tools are only important because they help me put words on my blog.

I chose to blog about video games for two reasons. First, I love playing them. And when I am close to them, roses fills my nostrils, all I see are hearts, and the music from Romeo and Juliet plays in the background. Sharing this love of games is the logical next step for me.

Well my goal with this blog was humble. I wanted at least one person to like and read it. I’m happy to say that my blog has long since achieved and surpassed that feat. A couple of days ago, I earned a total of 100 followers and 200 likes for good measure.

But I want more than these numbers: I want my words to captivate the eyes of non gamers. Maybe they’d learn something new about games, or maybe they’d realize gamers are like them. I’m proud to say some great writers from non game blogs have already liked my posts. Here’s to having more of them pop by!

I love words, video games, and I need to share my thoughts with you. I want to let the words flow like a river from my head, down my arms and on to the screen. From there, they trickle into the vast ocean we call the internet.

Thanks for reading.
