Eleven Years! That's Probably Long Enough...

 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.


  1. Thanks for all the excellent content.

  2. Thanks for all you insight the past 11 years. Very many of your post have been the start of conversations with my friends and have proved the words to explain thing I have struggled to put into words.
