Blame it on the cold weather, or the fact that the year is almost over, or the recent turmoil in my day-to-day life. Whatever the reason, I’m nostalgic and thinking about life. Every morning I wake up and go through my RSS feed, which I sporadically check throughout the day depending on my downtime. There are a handful of blogs I read that I really envy (in a good way, I’m not talking about some jealousy thing here. I mean I respect them, their writing styles, and subjects), and I wanted to share those blogs here and maybe encourage some others to read them too. I’m going to start with just two of them today.
First up, I have Touched the Sky – by Rowan Blaze. Every single day I read Rowan’s blog and it just makes me smile. There’s one main reason. He writes about gaming with his significant other and I miss that (no, I don’t mean I miss gaming with his significant other.. silly). I miss the closeness of having someone to game with like that. As time goes on I typically get frustrated gaming with someone else because people are so different. No one games quite like me. Who else wants to spend a few hours organizing their inventory, for example. I love the way he describes playing Rift, and starting new characters together in his latest post. His posts are filled with “we” and “us instead of “I” and “me” and it’s something I envy in the purest of ways.
Next up, Stylish Corpse – by Ysharros. I’ve been following this blog for years now, and while it may not always be updated, when it is, I can’t help but nod along as I read. Her latest series on a Sims 4 legacy family is something I look forward to almost every single day now. Sure, it might have something to do with the fact that I’m probably one of the biggest Sims fans out there, but the style of writing and the humour I find in her posts just comforts me. It’s nice to know that there are people out there with similar thought processes. Shame we all live so far away from one another!
Just like I take pleasure in the fact that there are so many different games out there that can appeal to so many types of gamers, I also appreciate the fact that there are so many people writing about them, and each one has a unique style and flavour.
If you haven’t checked out the blogs mentioned above, get to it! Hopefully you’ll love them as much as I do. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
