Once upon a time I had a bazillion ideas all crammed into my noggin each about a different subject. During the first couple of years that I blogged it was easy to snap out a new entry on a completely new subject every single day. Once I ran out of my own unique and original ideas to write about, I began to fall into more of a reactionary style of blogging where I wait for something to happen before writing. I hate it. It also doesn’t help that right now there’s close to nothing going on in MMO’s from which to draw inspiration.
Occasionally I’ll have an epiphany and new ideas will come to mind. I think I may have had one. Sitting at my desk, sipping my Diet Coke, I came to the conclusion that I should revisit old subjects. What? I thought he said he wanted new ideas! Yes, well, you’re right I do but hear me out. Back in 2007 and 2008 our blog had maybe 1/10th the readership it now enjoys so it’s very possible that none of you even read what I had to say. I was also writing without 3-4 years more experience behind me. In fact, looking back at some of my older entries I find that my opinion has changed. Why not revisit those ideas to see where I stand now?
What I’m going to do is go through some of my old stuff and write down topics. I may or may not read what I wrote. Regardless, I’m going to approach the subject with a completely fresh take and see where it goes. Here are a few subjects to expect (and since I have the subjects already I can knock them out every day):
- Gear-centric gaming
- UI Mods
- The first 5 minutes
- Death Penalties
That’s just a snapshot of some good topics to work through and dissect. I’ll also take requests. In fact, I’d prefer to write about something you’re wanting to read about. Want to know what I think on a subject (MMO or general gaming related)? Throw it out there and I’ll write.
Tomorrow I’ll kick-0ff this idea with my fingers crossed that it leads to even more fresh ideas.
