It has been a almost four years since I started this blog to post some of my thoughts about gaming. I posted about writing, playing, painting and occasionally rant about a lot of things. I have been trying not to post more than once a day in an effort to keep my posts specific and interesting.
It seemed just like yesterday that I was "Finally Blogging". It was the summer of 2009 when I wrote my goals for this blog: "This blog will include entries and rants about things I like, things I dislike and what I'm doing these days." And so far, I think I delivered what I promised: opinions, ideas, and the occasional solution to the problems I saw in game systems, adventures, and organized play.
In so many ways, this blog has been both an addiction and a way to express myself. One thing about writing the way I do: it forces you to think about what you want to say. By only allowing myself a single post a day, I can: first write ahead of time and gradually post, or write and post it immediately. The former, I generally do for miniatures while the latter requires me to ask myself "is this really what I want to say?" and "do I have something better to say?"
Entire posts were axed by that uncompromising editorial dictate. A number of posts remained for extended periods in "draft" as I could not find myself to refine my position, or because I was trying to think of different ways to do things. (I have nine such posts in my draft folder right now)
I know others have differing views, but this is how I chose to run my blog. Thank you to all my readers, for the encouragements and thoughts you have shared with me over those 700 posts.
That's right SEVEN HUNDRED POSTS! YEAH ME!
