The new year, fear, and Patreon
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 4:51 PM

It’s almost the new year. Time for a bit of introspection and a different approach to life.

To not bury the lead here: I’ve started a Patreon for my creative work. Click the new banner on my site, or visit my Patreon page to support me.

Let me go into a bit more about why I’m doing this, and why this has been a hard thing for me to do.

The holidays, relationships, and MMOs

Like it or not, it’s now the holiday season. For most people, this is a glad time of year as we get together for feasts to drive away the winter darkness and chill. During this time our minds often turn to families and loved ones. We look for source of warmth to drive off the emotional chill we feel this time of year. Sometimes we find it, sometimes we don’t.

Often I like to take a closer look at things and evaluate them more in depth. Like relationships: How does our perceptions affect them, particularly in the online world? It seems that we fall into regular patterns in our relationships, conforming to society’s expectations of what we should do. But, the culture in the U.S. has a terrible time really defining relationships. Even a meaningful word “love” tend to be dangerously overloaded and fraught with peril. Let’s take a look at this, and maybe think about what it means for Socializers in games.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:36 PM

I hope everyone out there had a good Thanksgiving. Even if you don’t celebrate it, I hope it was a good day. And, it’s always a good time to stop and reflect on what you’re thankful for.

Let me take a moment to count my blessings.

I just keep getting older
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 3:08 PM

Once again I have survived a full revolution clinging to a ball of dirt and molten metal hurtling through space around a continuous nuclear fusion engine. As with most things, this makes my life sound much more dramatic than it really is. For the non-science nerds out there: it’s my birthday today.

But, as is tradition on my blog, let’s take a look at the past year or so of life.

Slow to post
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 8:31 AM

After a great Blaugust, I’ve been a bit slack about posting regularly. A few things are contributing to this.

Let’s do a brief catch-up, shall we?

#Blaugust2016 wrap up: Introspection on blogging
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 12:09 PM

It’s not quite the end of Blaugust yet, but I have a special post for the last day. So, I figured I’d do a wrap up today, and maybe beat the crowds of people writing posts like this in a few days. :)

So, another Blaugust has come and gone. As is my wont, I’m going to get a little introspective about what blogging means.

Wait… what month is it again? It’s BLAUGUST!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 5:42 PM

So, it’s that time of year again, where I post a lot more often. Some people call it “the next sign of the apocalypse”, but most people just call it “Blaugust”. Especially since the world didn’t end when I posted every day last year for an entire month.

So, let’s gear up and get ready to go hard core and post… wait a minute, I’m getting a message….

Blaugust 2016 Super Relaxed Edition

Well, okay then. No need to shotgun the Red Bull, I guess.
