I’ve always considered the internet to be one of the most interesting and exciting places to be in the world, and this recent article from the British paper, the Evening Standard, is a great way to show you why. They’ve created an “ie” magazine, and it features interviews with some of the web’s great, well-known personalities about their online lives. The article is a bit long, but really great.
There is also a section on technology, which is pretty interesting.
The article includes a bit of insight into the internet, the latest in online gaming, and the latest in technology. It also includes a bit of insight into the industry, and what it is like to be a blogger.
The first thing that came to mind when I saw the article was that bloggers are people who like to share their thoughts with the world. As such, they aren’t averse to posting an opinion on a subject they don’t agree with. I think this is a very positive way to show that our industry is diverse, and that it actually includes people who are interested in writing about technology, gaming, and other things they’re passionate about.
This leads us to the second thing that comes to mind. If you want to be a blogger, you need to be passionate about blogging. You need to be interested in writing about things you think are cool. You need to be interested in people who are interested in your thoughts. You need to be interested in your audience. The more you are interested in a topic, the more you will find interesting blogs to write about it.
I can’t emphasize this enough, it has to be someone who is passionate about your own topic. If you’re not, then you have no one to talk to about it. This is especially true of bloggers who are writing about gaming as a hobby. The majority of people who write about gaming for the gaming blogs are completely oblivious to any of the subjects they write about.
I can easily see why blogging for the gaming blogs is so popular. Gaming is a niche, and hobby blogs like this are a great way for people with an interest in gaming to get their name out there. But, I think there are plenty of bloggers out there who are writing about things they know nothing about.
It’s a bit of a stretch to call me a “blogger,” since I don’t use a blog (although I do occasionally write about my personal life or other topics as well). However, I’m an avid gamer, and I don’t see any problem with people writing about gaming for fun, or as a hobby, or as a career. What I do see is a few things, and I have no problem with it.
I use blogs for a few reasons. I want people to take the time to learn about who I am, what my interests are, my goals for my life, and what I hope to achieve in the future. That is a lot of stuff to write about. The more people I can reach, the more people I can influence.
