Hello all, and welcome to Wasdway.com!
For a couple months now I have been tossing around the idea of creating my own gaming blog. I had my name picked out and I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my blog to cover. My problem was that I would set myself a date to have my first post written, then the date would draw closer and closer, and eventually go right on by. I gave myself another due date, and another, and another… each one passing by just like the first. What I needed was something or somebody to give me that push to finally get my blog off the ground. That’s where the Newbie Blogger Initiative came in.
I was going through my morning ritual of scrolling through Google Reader while I decided what to scrounge up for breakfast when I came across posts by Syp and Tipa, two of the gaming bloggers I follow, talking about a month long event called the Newbie Blogger Initiative that aims to help people that want to make their own gaming blog get started. The NBI has a group of already established gaming bloggers that are writing posts throughout the month of May to give tips and advice to new bloggers, answer questions they might have, and even help get some initial traffic to their blog to help get them discovered. And what is the cost for this amazing opportunity? Just the time and energy to get your blog off the ground. This was too good an offer to pass up.
I plan on having Wasdway.com cover two things. The first thing it will cover is my thoughts and stories as I travel through the MMO and computer gaming world. I also want to devote part of my blog to help people discover upcoming computer games, MMOs, and expansions. I will have posts where I will compile a wealth of information about new games and present it all in one place so people can discover new games without having to look all over the web. My personal goals for creating this blog are many; the main reasons I am here are to try something new, and make new friends to talk about my favorite topic(gaming!) with. If I could manage to shake off some of my antisocial tendencies that would be pretty nice too!
I started playing MMOs about nine years ago with Everquest. Since then I have tried nearly any mainstream MMO you could think of, and probably then some. I am currently playing Tera, and I am eagerly awaiting The Secret World and Copernicus, an upcoming MMO based in the new franchise that started with the recent game Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning. When the game boasts of a world created by your all time favorite author(R. A. Salvatore) it is pretty hard not to get excited!
Thanks for joining me, I look forward to many long chats in the future!
