Why I Blog

This entry was written primarily so I could win free web hosting and the accolades of my peers. Tee-hee. It should also provide some insight into the obvious, as noted above.

When I was in college, I started blogging because it was a way for me to deal with uncomfortable feelings and the troubles that came with having too many thoughts in mind at the same time. As I grew older, I kept blogging, but I didn’t really understand why I kept on doing so.

After graduating from college, I became what could be called a professional video game newsblogger, and I loved most of the time I spent doing that, writing about something I knew and felt comfortable with.

Still, it wasn’t until I was forced to stop doing that job that I realized how much I yearned for the chance to write and be read by people.

I gathered courage and information, and eventually started Games and Geekery, and have been consistently writing about games and other geeky things for the past two years. It may not always be deep, and it might not be meaningful to a lot of people, but the important thing is that I blog because the act of writing about games is meaningful to me, and what other joy is there to be had than to do something you’re good at and happy with?
