Internet bullies, anime conventions and new games can wait a day. I want to talk about me!..Or more importantly, I want to talk about us! What you can expect from me and what I'd like to improve on for this year. If there's anything in particular that you'd like to see outside of this short list, let me know in the comments.
1st: Be Personal
I'd like to share more about myself...be more open and honest with you. Anonymity has it's perks for sure, but writing something like this has way more meaning if it's in context. And who cares what I have to say, if you have no idea who I am? Mostly I keep it anonymous because of the climate...The current trend of trolls and fanatical oppressors of opinion. I don't want these people calling and threatening my work or family because I have a differing opinion on whether Princess Peach is sexist or not. Honestly, I don't think it would be too hard to figure out who I am, but I plan on stepping out from behind the curtain at some point, so don't worry about it.
2nd: More Research
Between working a full time job, writing these, working out, spending time with friends/family and actually playing the games I write about, I often don't have time to do as much research as I want. I don't want this blog to just be a place for my brain farts, so I've made plans to give myself more time for research. I'm currently sifting through five pages of research links on my first big feature. So expect better written, better researched topics to come....don't worry I'm sure I'll be freestyling just as much.
3rd: A Real Website with More Content
Let me be honest with you. I hate having a blog...just that word, "blog", it drives me nuts! I wont pretend that I'm anything more than a blogger now, but that's the point of resolutions, trying to better ones self. One day I will be know as a writer...not a journalist or blogger, just a games writer. You got to have goals people! I'm thinking a real website with added video content will be a big step to get me closer to that goal. I'll be updating you on the site as more info becomes available.
4th: Finish Gaming Back Catalog
Much like most gamers, I have a decent back log that I need to finish! I'm going to try to dedicate more time to getting it done...so no new games or Diablo III, Hearthstone, Destiny or any old game until I've finished the ones I have.
So what are your resolutions for the New Year?
Any suggestions for me?
Like always, thanks for reading!
