Appreciating My Fellow Bloggers

250px-The_fonz_thumbs_up

Today, I’d like to change things up a little bit and express my gratitude towards fellow bloggers that I read regularly. They consistently produce content that is enjoyable to read and from positions of experience, maturity, or at the very least, humor and intrigue. I don’t comment a lot (I read on my iPhone) but …

Community Spotlight #4: Keen of Keen and Graev’s Gaming Blog

Keen

When I first started writing this blog, I had a plan to interview my favorite bloggers. Partly I wanted to do this because it would make for good reading, but mostly it was because I always find myself wanting to ask specific questions of those I read the most. I’ll also often wonder about who …

Why Trolls Puzzle Me

Just a quick one today and not gaming related. Still, I think the topic is relevant since we both find ourselves here cruising the blogosphere. I’m lucky enough to have a kind and courteous audience, but we’ve all come across trolls at some point. Trolls are those commenters who pop up now and again to …

SAR: Appreciating the Industry

Update: Whoops! Might help if I included a link. Fixed! The lack of Friday post disturbs me. What’s that? It’s Saturday? Better late than never! The good news is I’m not lazy. I’ve actually been writing a Friday post every week for a couple months! See, the fine gentleman at Lagwar saw fit to offer …

So long, Common Sense Gamer

I just wanted to direct everyone over to Darren’s blog, where he announced yesterday that he’s retiring from blogging. He’s been at it a long time and has done a lot to support the MMO community, it’s sad to see him go. Head on over and say goodbye, if you haven’t already. Thanks Darren!

Actually, story does matter.

Sometimes, trolls get the best of you. I mirrored yesterday’s post on WoWRiot and the very first commenter, Pink, threw this out at me: “go rp nerd. no1 cares about what a quest involves, only what the reward is.” The asshat couldn’t have even read the article because what I’m saying is that I stopped …

Quick notice

I’m going to start signing my comments as “Chris (Game by Night)” from now on. I’m doing this because there’s now about three Chris’ commenting in the community and it becomes a little confusing. So if you take note of this, know it isn’t an attempt at blog whoring or trying to sound like I …
