Howdy. While I am a serial ex-blogger, I have decided that I am going to try again. The frequency that I have thoughts that I want to post and write down has increased, so I want to have somewhere to put them all.
At the moment, we are on the default design for WordPress, that will change soon as I put together pages. My previous blogging attempts have gone something like this:
1) Have great idea for blog
2) Buy domain
3) Spend a week+ designing and building template / graphics
4) Get bored of designing
5) Let domain lapse
I am hoping to shortcut this process by using a domain that I have registered a while ago, and using ideas that I have been wanting to write about for a while, such as:
This blog is called RolePlayGame.co.uk for a reason. This domain was originally registered while blogs weren’t anywhere near are common as they are today, so I manually put up a few posts using static HTML.
I want to write about games; and RPGs in particular. You will also probably hear about my exploits with tabletop wargames, and board games. Oh and computer games, and anything else which takes my fancy.
I don’t get to play RPG games as often as I would like, but I come up with a lot of character ideas. Some of these will just be outlines for a cool set of mechanics, others will be fleshed out introductions, others will be a background and motivation for a hero or villain.
I have these in abundance, so I thought that I would write them here.
So, I read quite a few webcomics. I am planning on writing reviews of webcomics that I read and have read to share the love.
Take my word for it; I can’t really draw. This is something that I would like to change. Part of the problem is that I think of something that I would like to draw, imagine it, and leave it at that.
Having somewhere to put my stuff online will hopefully mean that I will draw more, and improve.
It needs no explanation
[See also engineering, arts, creativity, and any other interesting exploits of human endeavour]
I.e., whatever else I think of at the time.
Here is the plan
I am hoping that there are times when I want to write, so I will write, and in times when I don’t want to write I will then spend on upgrading the site design. That is the plan. If I am still blogging in a few months, we will know whether it worked.
So, um, stick around and see what turns up.
