Hello, everyone! My name is Ash, and I just recently started a blog called ParagonGamer.com. It's a very modest site at the moment, since I just started it, don't have a lot of time, and am trying out some different ideas, but the main idea behind it is that I want to provide a blog that gamers who care about the big issues could go to to find an opinion or two on different issues in the gaming industry.
I'm posting here because I've been following Giant Bomb since late 2008, and you guys are the exact audience that I want to speak to and converse with, and I would like some ideas, suggestions, constructive criticism, or whatever else you'd like to say about the site. The current setup I have is that I post each weekday about something that's on my mind about the industry, usually a big issue, but sometimes something more lighthearted, like a personal love note to Mirror's Edge or something. On my home page, I have a featured article from somewhere else, which stays there during the whole week. I keep track of my past posts, but otherwise, I've got nothing else on the site than showing off other articles and videos during the weekends. I want to do a podcast, but I have no ideas for it, regarding content or format. I'm also working on a video series, which is what will be taking a lot of my time during the weekends, but that won't begin for a week or two at least.
So, please, check out the site, and tell me what you think! Nothing would make me happier than to hear from caring gamers how best I could try to attack big issues in games and discuss solutions to those problems with you guys. Thanks for reading!
