Change the Tagline, Save the World… or not…
As I have mentioned before (notably in yesterday’s post), I’ve come to the conclusion that my blog’s focus was a bit narrow. My older brother agreed, and he suggested the new tag line in a comment I read about an hour ago. He was right, and so were my feelings: as a Dev blog, this isn’t ever going to amount to much, and I can’t talk about my game development work on a daily basis because I’m often tired of writing about it after I work on writing it. It’s a strange thing to not want to always talk about something you love doing, but it’s hard to try to come up with something to talk about in the development process on even a weekly basis.
So, I’m re-tasking the blog. This is just the first of what I hope to be several changes to the blog. Hopefully, the posts will be more frequent, for one thing. You can still expect to hear about Elements and 16 Bit Heroes about once a week or so, but now I will feel comfortable posting here about other things without slapping “OFF TOPIC” across the top of the post. Heck, I won’t even need the Off Topic Tag anymore…
I’m not going to go back and edit previous entries to reflect the change. I dislike revisionist history and retcon, and so those pages will stay what they are: glimpses into the past. It’s silly to do that sort of thing on the Internet anyway, don’t you think? I mean, the most that sort of thing accomplishes is pissing people off, most of the time, right?
In any case, the quantity and diversity of content for the blog will broaden, although I cannot guarantee the quality will increase with it. Posts about my two development projects will be tagged as Elements and 16 Bit Heroes (depending on which I’m talking about), so it’ll be easy enough to find that stuff if that’s all you’re here for. I hope it won’t be. I hope you’ll like my various ranting on video games, comics, anime, geekdom in general, and the occasional foray into politics. But if you don’t, and you just want the dev stuff, find the project you prefer in the Tag Cloud or Subject Cloud to the right, click on that, and enjoy what you came here for.
I promise I don’t mind.
In the meantime, thanks for tuning in, and I hope to see you commenting in the future. New post later today, tomorrow, or Tuesday. See ya!
