2013 is history and 2014 is coming upon us. New Year’s has always been considered a time of celebration and reflection. We celebrate the hope and promise the new year will bring us and reflect on the year we’ve had, good or bad. A new year is a fresh start and a clean slate, which is why New Year’s resolutions are popular to make before that clock strikes midnight. Whether we actually stick to the resolutions for the whole year is another thing entirely.
November is here once again and this means my little blog that could has turned two! Can you believe it? I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for two years now. I’ve always loved writing and the only reason I kept at it is because in one year, I’ve been able to reach people with my words and shared interests or experiences. With the simpleek blog reaching the two-year mark, a number of really amazing things have happened not just for this blog, but how it shaped my personal blogging experience thus far.
A double post tonight! Please read my bad game review at United We Game, where I talk about Myst for the Nintendo DS. It’s probably one of the few or only bad game I’ve ever played since becoming a gamer.
Check out my brand new post at United We Game, where I discuss the gamers’ urge to collect more and more games. I explore the reasons behind this and how it’s partially responsible for the bane of every gamer’s existence––the backlog.
This week United We Game has a collective community post theme going on right now, where all participating writers for UWG discuss their thoughts or experiences with co-op play. I have decided to participate in the community post discussion, and you can read it right now on UWG. Be sure to check out all the other community posts currently published.
For those of us who live in the USA, we have been enjoying a three day weekend because of Memorial Day. While this weekend is considered the kick off to the summer season and a chance to hit the beaches and to have barbeques, it’s obviously a day to remember those who have fought and died for our country.
Mondays are my usual days for updates on this blog, but just for this week I will be on a mini-hiatus. As much as I wanted to have something ready for today, my weekend has been a bit busy. I spent part of my weekend fighting off a minor cold, and I managed to nip that in the bud before it got worse. Then, I also attended a special event for my best friend’s daughter. Overall, it became impossible to sit down and concentrate on one post for this week. Sometimes it’s just good to take a little break from writing to relax and recharge.
Don’t fret though. If you missed it over the weekend, my very first post over at United We Game is now up. It’s more of an introductory post about my relationship to games and why I have seen myself as the intermediate gamer. Give it a read if you haven’t already. Don’t forget to also look for my usual posts at Geek Force Network tomorrow. I hope those posts will keep all my lovely readers satisfied until I come back with a brand new post next Monday. Until then!
It looks like yours truly is all over the blogosphere lately. First Geek Force Network and now some place called United We Game? You guys must be tired to see my name around. Actually, I sincerely hope that isn’t the case. As you have guessed from the title of this update post, it is in fact true. I am spreading my reach beyond my little ‘ol blog and going places I have never dreamed of going to before. You folks know about Geek Force Network if you read my last post announcement, and now you must be wondering what is this new site simpleek is a part of? Wonder no more!
