When I started this blogsite mid-June of this year I honestly had no idea what to expect? This could have been a crash and burn situation or a huge success. Thankfully, the world of blogging has been kind to me. It has been kind enough for me to reach over 500 collective views to this blog. I honestly did not see my blog passing the first 100 views, gladly I was wrong.
Of course, there are thank yous that need to be given! I would like to thank my eccentric and brilliant roommates. They have given me topics to blog about many times. That includes my most recent blog post, “Videogame Assurance”. My roommates are prime examples of what a respectable and smart gamer should be. They have their wild sides (someone more than others), but they enjoy playing and discussing aspects of videogame culture just as much as I do. I would like to thank my mentor for believing in me. It is difficult convincing people that I want to study videogames as a career, especially when other professors and directors see videogames as a waste of time. Professor Rashawn Ray has been a tremendous help in getting my blog out there. I even got a job do to him mentioning my blog to a colleague of his. So, again thanks Professor Ray. A special thanks for my beta, Ana. My blog posts sound a lot more concise because of her edits. She has endured editing many blog posts that have been typed late at night with improper grammar, misspelled words, and incoherent sentences. I will do my best next year to type up posts earlier in the day when my mind is still active. Ana thank you!
Ultimately, a big thank you to everyone who has viewed my site and read my posts. This sounds cheesy, but every view that I see brings a smile to my face. I love talking, researching, laughing, playing, etc. about videogames. I am so glad that they are members of the gaming community who enjoy reading my posts.Now that my goal of reaching 500 views before the end of the year has been reached, what is next? This is a big goal, but I want to be at 1,500 views by the end of 2015. I will keep posting if you keep reading and liking my posts. Again, Thank You to everyone who has encouraged me to keep blogging. I greatly appreciate it. Now it’s time for ice cream! Mmmmmm strawberry!!!
