2010 Reflections

Rock on, 2010! Until the end!
I thought I'd just go through some thoughts on the year as it comes towards the end. Musings on blogging some reflections on gaming. What it all means to me and what to hope for in the new year.

Blogging Reflections
I recently saw that Massively had a post considering their Top 10 MMO Blogs of 2010, while I knew I was surely not on it, I was very shocked to see I had made it on the list as blogs to watch. Very honoring to even be considered, as a blog to watch, on the list.

I try to be a humble and not full of myself,  try to consider other people's views,  always try to be classy and not vulgar with my writing, it's just because that's who I am. I play what is fun for me, not always what everyone else is blogging about. I write because I truly enjoy it. So when I get a nod in my direction it is always such a welcome flattery.

As writers we often don't always get much back besides the self furfilment. I always try to show interest in my readers comments because I honestly am interested in what they have to say about whatever I am writing. Comments are like candy to me, I savor every one of them! Sometimes I consider hanging up my hat with blogging, we all have our days, and it's times like this that it really make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I think 2010 was a year for me to find my own place with my blog. The name might not be fancy and catching but it has meaning me to, and hey it's easy to type it in the navigation bar! The blog has gone through a lot of looks, some very embarrassing to remember. I'm an artist at heart so I try to add in my own little touches of flair. It's probably a bit over the top and far more colorful than most but it's what I love to do!

Gaming Reflections
This year I had the chance to make some very special friends, with other bloggers and players. Some even managed to make their way to my realm in Warcraft. I managed not to scare them off and it's been nice having them around. I always welcome new people to join us.

2010 had some boring bits and felt stagnant at some times, as far as gaming went. I got quite bored here and there but as the year wraps up there is more to do, once again. The year coming up looks promising for some new games. Still some waiting to do but I've found that it's easier to be happy with what you have instead of yearning for what is to come. It will get here when it gets here.

I realize friends and fluff are more special than any achievements and epic loot. Years ago I moved on from small little family guild(s) in hopes to get a regular spot in an active raiding guild, but then ended up missing the people who had made the game special. Not to say raiding isn't great, it's just not the end all be all of my world.

I hope see some fun new games out this year. It's always refreshing and exciting to be a newbie in a new MMO. I look forward to bringing in the new yet keeping in touch with some of my older favorite games! This year makes eleven since I stepped into the pixelated enchantment of MMO games. It was like falling into the looking glass ;)

It's a bit early but I hope you all have a wonderful year in 2011! Any reflections for you about this year? Or hopes for the next?



  1. Congrats on the Massively nod. Also this was a great post. Mostly for the intangibles. I found myself cracking a smile often as I was reading it. Keep up the blogging and maybe we'll see you on the top ten next year!

  2. @Janet- TY!

    @ Pid- Thanks Pid! I don't really have aspirations to be some big time blogger but it's nice to get noticed a little, tiny bit hehe.

    Glad you enjoyed the post, sometimes I wonder if I'm just writing a bunch of dribble =p

  3. Keep on posting cause I'll keep on reading! I may not comment all the time but I do enjoy reading what you have to say.

  4. Thanks a lot Jay :D

    I've gotten slack about posting on other people's stuff. I know how it gets!
