A little invention

I went with my gut on this one. I’ve enjoyed blogging this time round so much that I went and took up the option to own my domain name with the purpose of installing and hosting WordPress. I got a good deal on a three-year term, I have a graphic designer working on a logo design etc and am looking forward to developing my knowledge further of CSS.

So what does that mean to this blog? I had intended to transfer these very posts over to the new self-hosted site but I have now decided to leave this version of Blackened Skull as is. IF things don’t work out at the new site then I can return here.

The new Blackened Skull will have a much better vision of what I want; a great theme that I’ve had input into, an artistic theme, fuller and better worked post ideas. Once I’m happy to announce the new site URL, I’ll post a further post here with the link.

Thanks for your support. Please keep reading!

Am bored of your game

Normal folk tend to consider writing a blog just as their habit…er…maybe I mean hobby begins to require a ritualistic routine. Said blog then becomes a labour-of-love and then we get into the whole what came first loop routine. Yada yada yada.

Blackened Skull has the opposite origin. I’m in a state of flux where I’ve just taken some time away from Twitter and no serious gaming is currently going on. So yes I’ve started a blog at a low ebb deliberately, it would seem.

Like many others, my previous blogs have ridden on the crest of a wave. That crest being motivation from a favourable gaming experience or whatnot. But crests have to come crashing down if they are to keep moving forward. Sustaining interest when there is no crest to ride has been very hard on the longevity of all the blogs I’ve produced.

My blog experience shouldn’t have to be so self-aware that nothing other than a slump and crash can be seen on the horizon. Nope, I’ve decided to be a little bit wiser and start writing ‘pre-crest’. A start where hype hasn’t taken hold and I’m not just waiting for is the cold reality of disappointment to head my way. So welcome…

…and devs?

Your game bores me, so what cha doing about it?
