Chapter 5: Blogging
When did you first start blogging?
As I stated I started crookshankz.blogspot.com when Grimwell posted his hard core challenge. Later I switched from blogger to wordpress and changed the name to thegaminggoob.wordpress.com. On hind site, the name kind of makes me feel like a goob but I’m think I’m pretty much gonna stick with it.
Why do you blog?
Because I simply don’t have enought time sinks.
Do you have a schedule or some sort of routine you try and follow when blogging?
Not really. When I game, I just write about it. When I don’t game, I don’t.
Is there some grind involved in blogging? If so, what is it and how do you cope with it?
Nah. My blog is fairly laid back. When it feels like a grind I simply don’t blog.
By contrast, what do you find pleasurable about blogging?
I blog so I’ll talk about gaming less.
How many people offline know you blog or podcast?
The handful I actually talk to.
What advice would you give someone who wanted to try their hand at blogging?
Figure out why you want to blog and what type of blog you want to write. Use that as your guide lines.
What is something you know now that you wish you had known when you first started?
Your wife will pick on your misspelled words and poor grammer.
Can you picture a future where you will hang up your keyboard and no longer blog?
That time is definately coming soon.
At your funeral, what song(s) would you have played as your corpse is set alight and cast out to sea on a funeral barge?
