The first step is often the hardest, and this time it’s no different. If this venture is to be worth while, the first thing I will need is a plan. The following post aims to establish a foundation for future posts of this blog. Hopefully by the end of this post, I will be well prepared for the start of this very unique and exciting journey.
The first roadblock that demands attention is writer anxiety. Unlike an essay written to be marked, or a journal entry written for ones future self; A blog is written for the whole world to see. It is true I could always set the blog to private, but keeping an online journal is not what I want. Daunting it may seem, what makes blogging truly exciting and at all meaningful is precisely you, the readers. And for the readers, I’m going to push ahead and just write. Hopefully in time, I’ll get use to other people reading my work. In the mean time, please do excuse me if I get a nervous break down half way through a post. (Hopefully I’ll be sane again before pressing “Publish”)
Now, I want to talk about the goals for this blog. Here at Reverie the focus will be on discussion regarding the three most popular mediums of entertainment, books, films and television, and video games. I hope to create a place where people could gather to share their views, discuss their opinions and potentially make friends as well as pick up on new mediums of entertainment they never thought they would enjoy.
I will attempt to make posts fortnightly, if not weekly. There are already a few topics I have planned, so do look forward to them. On a side note, I would appreciate any feedbacks on my writings, or topic ideas you think could be interesting. Simply leave a comment and I’ll be sure to get back to you.
I hope what I have inked here would be sufficient as a framework for me to work within. And so with that, I thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please leave a comment below if you have any suggestions or questions, and be sure to check back soon!
Coming up next: Games and the Nature of Play.
