Once upon a time, blogging (to me at least) meant signing onto Blurty and bitching about how life sucked and detailing a bunch of stuff no one really gave a damn about. This was the period known as early high school, and it fortunately started to die about the time I developed a real taste in music.
For the past several years, blogging has been my way of trying to organize thoughts and share ideas on video games and film with the outside world. In other words, I actually try to have something to say!
During this time, I find that I actually enjoy reading the blogs of others. I check places like Twenty Sided Tale and The Brainy Gamer frequently. If I'm struggling to get in the mood to write, these places will help me get in that mood.
However, sometimes it's tough to think of a good topic. Or perhaps you feel like you've written something awesome, but want to share it with more than the jerks on Facebook and/or Twitter (and all two people using Google Plus).
This thread is for sharing such things, critiquing other's work, and inspiring each other with new ideas. Not to mention the age old hobby of why we really blog: shameless self promotion. So feel free to post links to pieces you've written, bitch about writer's block, share some tips for what got you through periods of writer's block, or even ask for advice on how to start a blog.
But remember to use a lot of exclamation points so we know how loud you're shouting.
Provide a link to your blog and I'll add your name and link to this post.
