What’s all this about?


I’m not sure if anyone will ever read this, but should someone stumble across my blog here then I wanted to leave a little introductory message and outline what it is I’m doing.

I’m starting this blog to help me practice writing. I hope to get better at writing reviews, opinions and related projects for video games, movies and maybe even books and more. As I am hoping to practice, it’s likely that my format may shift and hopefully the quality of my writing will shift with time. I want to make it clear that I am under no delusion that the things I write are original or in any way meaningful. While I hope to convey my own views and opinions, they will likely be those that have been presented online before. That it to say I will probably decide to write about games and movies that have been analyzed to death and I’m well aware of that. Then why online, you might ask? Well there’s something about maintaining a blog where it can be seen that represents seriousness to me, and that (I hope) will inspire me to continue practicing. It provides me with a quasi-official deadline that I should respond to more seriously as I attempt to move forward in my writing goals.

Just so I’m not misunderstood, this isn’t necessarily me trying to excuse any flaws in the blog. On the contrary, should anyone stumbling across this site look through my work and want to help me improve, then I hope you provide that help! I’m mostly trying to let people know that I do not inherently take myself seriously and thus if my views and opinions fall afoul those out there on the internet, I hold no belief that I am in any way shape or form an authority on these subjects. However, if you wanted to just share your opinions with me and others, then that’s fine.

With that awkward statement out of the way, maybe I’ll move on to posting some things sometime soon.
