This blog began in January of 2010. It moved to Blogger on January 10th I believe but started before that. The nice thing about starting in 2010 is it makes tracking the age of the blog really easy.
I started this blog because I figured I could write about running games more or less endlessly. After 11 years I've more or less proved that, even if I have recovered some topics from time to time. However, I am also thinking that 11 years is also a good run and I may - officially - leave it at that.
I never did this for an audience or a following. I hoped it could be a helpful tool for other people. I hoped it could be a place for discussion. And at times it was that and that was awesome. However, blogs were starting to be on the way out way back in 2010 when I started, and now it feels like even their successor in podcasts and vlogging is nearing that point of oversaturation.
On top of that, while I still love gaming, and running games, and talking about games, my life is very different. I don't always have time. I'm missing more posts. It sometimes feels more like a chore than a fun thing to do to write posts, and that is increasing.
This isn't to say I will never update the blog. I've done this for 11 years, for all I know I mean to stop but will keep posting. There will also be times when I want to break things down for myself. It's entirely possible I'll take a break and maybe try to come back with a different format or structure.
For now though, I'm going to hang it up. The blog will hang around. The posts will hang around. I just won't be reliably updating it.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed or just read some of the posts. I hope I gave you a new perspective to look at things with. And I hope you have fun in all your future games.
