Newbie Blogger Initiative: My Gratitude

In case you weren't already aware, this blog is a part of the Newbie Blogger Initiative.  I am a newbie blogger and thanks to NBI, I finally took the initiative to make something of a blog.  

Thus far, it has been a blast.  While I have always enjoyed sharing my thoughts on a variety of topics but especially MMOs with my friends, it feels nice to codify my perspective into a publicly-viewable, written form.  And, it has been a fun hobby to pass the time.  

I have no idea what I will do with it, but I am happy to develop writing and communicating skills no matter what.  You would think that after 4+ years of college, focusing on English and philosophy that I might no how to do both with ease, but everyday I am learning.  Writing for pubic consumption is a different beast.  I have to be shorter, more concise, while also still being engaging.  No one is paid to read and grade everything I write, so I have to attract people to it.

No matter where this goes, I want to thank the Newbie Blogger Initiative for spurring me on and helping me develop something that I have always wanted to do.  It is a real pleasure to have people like you on the internet.


  1. Welcome to the NBI, glad you're having fun so far!

  2. Thank you so much! And thanks again for having this, it has been a really nice thing to see.

    Also, if you could, check out my most recent article. It is inspired partially by seeing your more recent Nostalgia Lane. I saw you mentioning Planescape on a MMO blog, and I put two and two together and just knew: yeah, I have to write that one.
