*taps mic* This thing still on? It's been a fairly long time since I've written or even read any blogs, but I figured I might as well pop in and see what's going on. My life is absurdly busy right now, so of course it's time to take on another project and see if I can keep up with this blog again! (Please don't get your hopes up, folks.)
There are a handful of things I want to get done, so let's see if I can put a dent in them soon.
Format old book reviews and post them
Format old video game reviews and post them
Bake a bunch of desserts to post (yeah...for the blog!)
Write up a play-through of Final Fantasy (PSP - Anniversary Edition)
Fix the layout, links, and possibly name of this blog
Figure out how to take screenshots of games on my PSP
For the longest time, I've wanted to create a blog. I've kept an online journal for over twelve years, but I always wanted something that I could post publicly and share with everyone besides my personal friends. The only problem was that I never knew what to write about. I suppose I should honestly say that's still mostly true.
I have a lot of hobbies. I spend quite a bit of time participating in various creative writing endeavors, from working on my own novels to role-playing original or fandom characters with others. I've dabbled in fan-fiction. There's a huge collection of poetry leftover from my angsty teenage years. It's safe to say that writing is probably one of my favorite things to do, but I don't know if there's enough information for me to make a blog about it. For one, I can't exactly post any of my private, un-edited work or the things I'm writing with others.
So maybe reading, then? I love to read and have actually been contacted by several people to do book reviews for particular websites. I thought about this one for a long time, that perhaps I could do some combination of a reading and writing blog. Honestly, though, I think my reviews are crap. It's impossible for me to figure out how to review something without giving away all the secrets! But...it's obviously something I need to get better at doing, so maybe I could try.
The list goes on and on. I love to play video games, so maybe a gaming blog? Or a cooking blog for the times I actually sit down and try to make something. A personal blog, edited down to the things I feel comfortable sharing? Rants about the state of the world? I just don't know.
Then it occurred to me that I don't actually have to choose. It's my blog. If I want to make a post one day bitching about my foray into the world of publishing, and then follow it up with some pictures of cupcakes I baked or a review of a game I played...I can. I wasted so much time trying to figure out what I wanted to write about that I completely missed the obvious fact that I can write about literally anything.
So here I am. You'll find whatever I feel like posting here, from books to food to video games to personal topics of conversation. If I find things are getting too concentrated on one specific thing, well, maybe I'll change my mind. Until then, welcome to my blog!
