Revival

First off, please forgive any grammatical or spelling errors, as I’m sure there are a lot of them. I’m posting from my phone.

My last post was just under a year ago. I’ve ditched this blog and went on with my life.

But I love writing, and I love video games. Writing about video games is what I want to do for the rest of my life. So why did I stop posting in this blog?

Part of the reason is because I joined pshomegazette.com. They were looking for new writers (still looking, if anyone is interested) and I wanted to write. Though I didn’t write as much as I thought I could. PSHome Gazette is a great group with wonderful people. The owners really made me feel welcome, and that my writing was good, for the few pieces I wrote. But PSHome Gazette churns out the best articles on everything PlayStation Home related. I, however, do not really play Home often… or at all for that matter. So even if they wanted me to post non-home related articles, after a while I stopped feeling like I should write them altogether. Even if I did think of an article, I’d quickly dismiss it, thinking that it wasn’t professional enough. I didn’t want to spam unprofessional articles. Or maybe I’m just making excuses, and trying to validate why I feel I let down the owners who so graciously took me into their community.

But I want to write in my voice. I want a place to talk about the video games I play and rumors and news that I read. I don’t want to care if it relates to Sony or Home. So I’m posting again in this blog I left to collect dust. Even if no one reads it.

And even though I’m bringing this back, I still want to be apart of pshomegazette.com. The community I feel is like a family. We’re all writers that love video games. And I would still love to be apart of them.

If ever I post something that I want to explore further, or more in-depth, I’ll likely do it on their website. Similarly, if they need me to write or preview/review something, I’ll more than happily agree.

Man, I must feel sappy today.
Feels great to be writing again.

    Good to see you writing again. You have more talent then you give yourself credit for. 🙂
    Tip: You will never be satisfied with your own writing and don’t be scared to tell the truth. No one wants to read a blog that sounds like your kissing someone’s ass. They want Facts. 🙂
