Hey everyone! Colorwind here with an update of how I’m going to run my blog from now on. As some of you may know, I am the managing editor of Gaming Precision. So I’m often busy taking care of things there, as well as writing reviews, editorials, features and more. I also am part of the podcast for the site so it tends to be a full time job. I keep this blog mostly so I can just do whatever I want and with my work at Gaming Precision more and more scripted and scheduled, I want my blog to be the antitheses of that, loose and random. So I’m going to make some changes to my blog.
First change is I’m discontinuing My Gaming Landscape. I’ve found myself wanting to talk about a game but deciding not to because I want to save it for Gaming Landscape. However, I often find myself cutting down what I wanted to say because I don’t want to make the post too long. This means my impressions are not of the moment and I want that kind of freedom. Also, on the podcast I’m on, I often talk about what I’ve been playing for the past week so I end up talking about what I’m playing for the week twice. So My Gaming Landscape is no more.
Secondly, I’m going to start blogging about things other than video games. I really want the freedom to do whatever I want with my blog but since it was the topic I had the most to say about, there was this unspoken rule with me that this blog was solely a video games blog. No more! I’m starting to read books more and I’ve always been a music lover so you’ll start hearing more about that. I’ll probably write about movies too as I’m pretty opinionated about them as a writer though I don’t watch that many.
Finally, in line with my push towards spontaneity, posts will differ greatly in length. Posts can now be a little as 100 words or as high as 2000 words. I’m essentially throwing out all my rules on formatting and content in case you can’t tell. I’m hoping this will result in more posts but this I can’t promise. You can also find more pictures and video posts as well.
Alright. So that’s all the changes. On a final note, you can follow me on Twitter, Google+, Raptr, LinkedIn, Writer’s Café, IGN, Giant Bomb, and Gamespot (NEW!) under Colorwind and on Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram under Colorwynd. I also have a YouTube channel where I do gameplay videos. That’s Colorwind also. You can add me on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam under Colorwind. Finally, check out all my work on GamingPrecision.com where I have a weekly feature called GP Picks, where I recommend three new games from that week as well as a retro title, and The Gaming Precision Podcast, where I talk with my fellow writers Ivan, Claire, Felisha and BJ about various goings on in the video game industry.
Peace and Love, Colorwind
