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.
