One Year of Blogging

Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of when I published my very first blog post!

I have been posting three days a week for a year, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, resulting in a whopping 157 posts, including this one.


I am going to continue with this schedule out the month of October, but after that I might cut back, at least a little.

I have started working at a new location, and I hope to start posting my new comic here very soon, so those changes in my life is enough of a strain to make three posts each week difficult to accomplish.

I am glad I was able to stick with it for a year, and I feel some kinship to the musician Jonathan Coulton, in how he recorded one new song each week for a year for his Thing-A-Week project, even if that must have been considerably harder than what I have done.

I would like to thank everyone who reads my posts.

A Case For Diversifying Content

When I first started blogging, I read some advice that said I should find a niche, and stick with it. In fact, I have read a variation on that advice several times.


But by diversifying your writing, you get people with different interests talking to each other.

It can be interesting to hear about a subject from a person who don’t normally engage with the culture around that subject.

And I am not just my photographies, my taste in movies, my fiction-writing, my past, or my cooking.

I am all of these things, and much more.


I write about all the things I love and care about; be it games, art, my girlfriend, food or music.

My niche is me.

5 Things I Like About Myself

Lana Cole of Welcome To Our Campfire has tagged me to play this sort of pass-it-forward blog-game. Thanks Lana! 😀

The Rules: Thank the nominator (oh, I already did that), display the picture on your post, list five things you like about yourself (one thing must be a physical attribute) and tag three or more people.



1] I have always been creative and imaginative, but only recently have I started trying to get this imagination out of my own skull, to share with all of you.

2] I think I may be a good boyfriend. She keeps telling me so, at least 🙂

3] I am generally pretty happy with the way I look overall, only that I could stand to lose some belly fat. But I am a chef after all, so at least it is on-brand. But for health-reasons, if nothing else.

4] I think I have a good taste in fiction from some diverse media. Taste is pretty subjective anyway, but I feel like I could recommend something good in whatever media anyone likes the best.

5] For the most part, I am good at not meeting trouble halfway, or being a worrywart. It has happened that I have let my worries take the better of me, but for the most part I manage to be pretty calm about potential future problems.



=&2=&wrote this post, which is the main reason I started blogging in the first place. I came across his blog while researching ways I could sell a card-game I had made. I have put that particular project on ice for now, but I am so glad Jamey got me to start this blog. I never knew I had this much to say and share!

=&3=& is a great movie-blog, and I am very grateful that they invited me to take part in The Time Travel Blogathon. Some of the most fun I have had with blogging so far.

=&4=& of Walkin’, Writin’, Wit and Whimsy takes a lot of nice photographs during her walks around Southeast Michigan. That, combined with her writing, makes for a great blog!
