It’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. I think it was ten months ago I last posted something. I started this blog to give myself a way to write things other than Magic: the Gathering articles. I became so busy with my writing that I just never got around to posting.
In general things have been trending in a positive direction for me. My wife and son live in a nicer, newer apartment than the previous one. My writing was noticed by a larger website than PureMTGO, and I ended up writing for MTGGoldfish (which I absolutely love).
I always worked very hard on my material for PureMTGO, and I posted links to my work everywhere I possibly could to try cultivate an audience. I think it’s fair to say that it paid off. My work is read by many more people now that I’ve switched to the Goldfish.
It’s strange how little things changed since the first publication of my new column, “Vintage 101”. All of a sudden my social media accounts began to grow on their own, which is pretty cool for the most part. My screen grabs of MTGO games no longer get immediately pulled from the Facebook group “ModoPhotos” anymore. I don’t know for sure if that’s related to my position as a weekly Magic writer, but it sure is an odd coincidence.
I’m enjoying the writing, and I hope to continue for the foreseeable future. I’ve even considered branching out into writing about non-Vintage, non-Magic things. My plan is to use this outlet at WordPress to test the waters. If I end up writing more blog posts that get positive feedback, then I would consider pursuing that more.
So there’s the update. Most of my old posts have been deleted for being substandard or just plain annoying and whiny. Look for more in the future!
