My Gaming Blog

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Yes, very unoriginal.

Hey guys, i've just started up a blog, which i sort of intend to do as a weekly opinion on things that have happened during the week in terms of gaming, and maybe some random other tidbits. I know it's been done before.. A lot. But i figured i'd link the blog here, i've got the first sort of "weekly look" post there now, and i hope to eventually add reviews and such. What I need most is honest opinions about everything, like style of writing etc. If you enjoyed it, don't hesitate to follow it, if you didn't, please tell me why! [Link](http://bowerranger.blogspot.com/ "link") Also, i'm looking for ideas to round the blog off, it stops rather abruptly. Just some quickfire ideas... - Amusing news article of the week (or video or something) - Rate the weeks news out of 10? Something like that, thanks for checking it out. :) -

    All looks good and has useful information. Although, personally I would have more nudity, profane language, gun wielding psychopaths, and staying up past bedtime (muhahah)... I don't read blogs (usually just check out a gaming websites), so I doubt I'll read it weekly/again.

    Love always,
    Kasumi Sorry, i had no prior knowledge of your blog. Besides, it'd be silly to think only 3 people do this. Lots of people do, it's incredibly unoriginal. That's why I want to enhance it with other content in the near future.

    Yeah same principle as the rest of the blogs. "spice it up to be unique." Also 3 people that I know/have seen make threads on communities I visit. My issue was getting away from doing only reviews, not just reviews but opinionated reviews with facts and my personal input. But other than that I've had no issue. My writing style is incredibly blunt. Pretty much what Steve-o said. One thing I'd rather you not do is do multiple voices within posts. Why? Because I have that already lols, I like to think that's what makes mine different. If you're interesting in checking it out go to my profile, you'll see a picture link to it.

    Kasumi You seriously think you're the first person to ever do something like that? You're fucking thick-headed if that's the case. EDIT: No offense.

    No dipshit. Said I made one, and after I made one two other people made basically the same thing THAT I SAW. I never said I was the only one with this idea, and I know there are more out there. Also that's cute, "no offense" I like it. You're a shitfilled cunt and I hate your rotten fucking guts. No offense.

    Blogs are so 2007. Really you'd have to be an amazing writer with an opinion that matters and at least a good looking website, default does not appeal to anyone. But hey, welcome to the real world, where nobody gives a fuck about what you think. Good luck with the blog though. Love always,

    It looks great! I would add about gamming leagues worldwide: ESL, CPL, Arbanet... any interview made ​​some Pro Clan, something more e-sport. I hope this will be useful information :)
