Settling, and yet unsettled

I wondered if I could generate enough content to fill a blog. Given that this is my 15th post in the month since I first started this thing, I no longer wonder. I've tweaked the stylesheets to improve the readability, and sooner or later I'll find someone to draw the kickass silhouette logo that this site (and its T-shirts) needs. And yet, there is a void. If you're here reading this, then you're helping to fill it, but I need more.

If a blog falls in the forest...


Currently this blog-in-larval form, this protoblog, in the "labor of love" stage. I post to it, a few people read it, but overall it languishes in obscurity. If speaking to an audience is traumatizing, speaking to an imaginary audience is just plain creepy.

Maybe I should be happy with what I've got. Thus far, nobody's spammed it, nobody's called me a talentless hack (a charge I'd have trouble defending against), and nobody's goatse'd it. So hey, that's three blessings right there.

On the other hand, nobody has said my writing is enlightening, invigorating, or engaging. This leaves me wondering which is better, having the one or not having the other.

Having someone to tell me I'm on the right track would be very nice. Having someone to tell me I'm on the wrong track and which would be better would be wonderful, because with feedback and constructive criticism I at least have a chance of making this place better.

So, what would you like to see here? More game reviews? Reviews of specific games? More thoughts on play? Say something soon, because I may start working on my next post very soon. It's not every day the writing vibe strikes, and of late I've been feeling productive. I don't want that feeling to slip away.


  1. It's enjoyable and though-provoking. And in many posts, informative. Alas, I have nothing more deep or profound to say than that, but I just enjoy reading your stuff.

    Whatever content you choose is fine with me.

  2. The braindumps will continue until morale, er, does something.
