Three years ago, I moved from this blog to another hosted on Blogspot called The Army Collector, because I was thinking I’d be collecting armies. I then set up another blog, called Graph Paper Games to cover my roleplaying games. Then I started a blog strictly for my solo zombie game called Hard Boiled Zombies. Which, if you’re counting, is three blogs, all fairly specialized.
There’s a lot I could write about how three years ago I was beginning a massive process of changing a lot of my life, and how that prompts blog-platform hopping. But I’m also realizing a few things. First, I don’t feel like collecting armies anymore, having built up a sizable Space Marines army over the last few years. My roleplaying gaming is going well, but I’ve realized that RPG material isn’t all that interesting.
Finally, what do I do with wanting to write about a historical murder mystery? Is it a wargaming thing? A roleplaying thing? Or just a thing I like?
That’s why I’m thinking of coming back here, to my blog that doesn’t really have a specific “theme.” Speaking of theme, WordPress blogs just look great, while Blogger blogs all look a lot alike.
At a minimum, I’ll keep the zombie blog, since having an ongoing story there with a lot of people following it. But I’m going to try blogging here again, not about a specific thing but whatever I want. We’ll see how long that lasts.
