3 Years of Gaming Omnivore

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!

  2. Congrats on the 3-years! 😀

    Perhaps I’m biased having crossed that milestone recently myself, but I feel like it’s a big one! Here’s to another grand 3-years of Gaming Omnivore. 🙂

    1. Thank you! The past three years have felt like both a brief moment in time AND a never ending dumpster fire. The blogging/streaming stuff has managed to help keep me relatively sane through most of it…

  3. Congratulations on three years. It takes dedication to stick to a project like this, and I wish you all the best going forward. As for feeling new — I’ve been writing my blog for over eight years now, but I’ve only been actively engaging with other writers and actually writing anything I think is worth reading for the past three years, so I feel like I’m with you there. You always bring plenty of insight with your posts; keep up the great work!

    1. Thank you so much! 🙏

      Looking back at most things – hobbies or other pursuits, it seems like I would either lose interest or get distracted by something else after not too long. Hell, the fact I’ve been here in WordPress as long as most jobs I’ve had is (possibly)both interesting and sad…
