It’s been 1,095 days since embarking on my adventure in blogging. As much as I’d love to have something, really…anything prepared for an anniversary post – a set of goals for the coming year, accomplishments, etc. I decided to keep this post short and sweet.
I feel like I have come a long way since deciding to nudge myself just outside my comfort zone and start something like capturing some of my thoughts about video games as a blog. I still remember sitting at my workplace desk, feeling as if both my youth and sanity were being steadily depleted, before I began scribbling down some random ideas I felt I could actually do as a means to regain something made me…uh, me. Starting out it was both exciting and terrifying as I had absolutely no idea what I was doing other than trying to transfer my thoughts and other half-baked ideas into semi-coherent sentences.
In many ways, I still feel like I’m still one of the new kids around the playground and have no damn clue what I’m doing. The entire experience thus far has been, I dunno….transformative? life-changing?(possible hyperbole). I’ve managed to interact with so many different cool people and has even led to opportunities like playing and writing about a few upcoming games – this still sounds bizarre saying out loud and would never have happened had I NOT gone against my initial instincts. The fact that I even felt confident enough(?) to branch out from there and try different creative outlets such as streaming or making a few short videos is nothing short of amazing considering my default response is usually just….do nothing.
Despite a few setbacks the past year or so, the decision to begin blogging and inception of Gaming Omnivore has impacted me in more ways than I can properly articulate.
Here’s to another year…thanks again!
