When I began this blog, I never expected it to be anything more than a practice run at writing in public. My plan was simple: Post up as much content as possible and use WordPress as a temporary online portfolio rather than a public blog. While it can still be said that I’m able to use it as originally intended, this blog has been noticed by an unexpected amount of you lovely readers and writers in a fairly short amount of time.
Fifty followers probably doesn’t seem like much to the more experienced professional bloggers but to me, that’s more people reading my blog than I ever imagined! Seriously, thank you to every single one of you who has chosen to let WordPress spam your emails with my content, it really means a lot!
In my earlier days as a blogger I wanted to cover as many topics as possible; From writing game reviews and covering events like the Play Expo, all the way to discussing more serious issues in politics and, of course, life in general. Over time however, my motivation for blogging has altered and become much more focused on a single subject which happens to be the biggest passion I have: The art of writing itself.
While I may occasionally still provide a personal opinion or two on various subjects, I think it’s safe to say that the primary focus of this blog has been evident for a while now. Between that and my childish giddiness at the follower count, I figured it was time to give the blog a new look that matches with the renewed sense of focus and passion for my writing that I’ve recently acquired.
I suppose that was a very long-winded way of saying “Thank you for following me and I hope you enjoy the new look!” but if you’ve been keeping up with me then you should know by now that everything I do is long-winded.
So I’ll wrap things up by saying thank you once again for sticking around and I hope you stay tuned for whatever turns up next! Speak soon folks!
