Blogging update

Many of you have probably noticed the combination this week of slow blogging *and* that when I do blog, they seem to be about video games (that extends to the last two weeks, actually).  There are a number of reasons for that, ones that I'm hoping will not be so prominent next week.  But we'll see.

The first is that I've had a bad cold this week and I just haven't had the energy to do *anything* except rest and play video games.  I have had no attention span, which is what makes gaming while sick so easy.  I've been home since Wednesday, though I could have gone in on Friday if we weren't doing an all-day First Aid course instead of actually doing our jobs.  I could have muddled through being at work, just taking a rest here and there as needed.  But I didn't have any breath to use on those training dummies and the thought of being there, active (even if we're just observing and listening at times too) all day just wore me out.

Today is the first day that I've felt myself.

The second thing is a minor "what the hell am I going to write about" barrier that I've hit once again this week, which was probably partially fueled by my being sick.  I get into these phases, sometimes where I can't think of what to write about, and sometimes where I know what I want to write about but I just don't have the desire to form the words.  Even today's one-hit wonder post was a bit difficult, though once I got going it was a lot easier (something I've found with writing a lot...starting is much harder than finishing).

As for the subject matter of recent posts, as I mentioned on Twitter and Facebook last week, I've joined the Game Informer Magazine's community web site.  They've done a really good job of making it a site that people can join and feel a part of a community that shares common interests (something I've blogged about before).  Members can discuss things in the forums, but they can also post blogs, and I've been doing that since the beginning of June.  Unless they've been GI Online specific, I've been copying them over here as well.  Since I've wanted to establish myself over there a little bit, I've wanted to do a post a day.  When you're lacking writing motivation, it makes it a lot easier to just use those posts here as well than it is to come up with *two* postings.

Now that things have calmed down over there a bit more, it will be easier.  There will still be some video game stuff here, but maybe not as much as there has been the last couple of weeks.  So those family members who don't care about that stuff can start reading again.

If you're a gamer, I encourage you to join me over there as well.  It caters to all gamers, not just Xbox or PS3.  Ok, you do have to be a *video* gamer, but not everything is about video games.

We talk about pretty much anything in pop culture.

So, hopefully, we will be back to more normal programming in the near future.


  1. I didn't know your cold was that bad that you missed all that work. Hope you're feeling okay now. I hate when my kids don't feel well. Guess that's a mommy thing. We never quit worrying about our kids.
    Love you.
