On this day, 7 April 2005, I did the first blog post on Xcalibar’s Space. Back them, it was part of the Windows Live Spaces, which all got transferred to WordPress back in 2011. I started this blog on a whim, just to write about what interested me. I did my first review a few days later (on the PlayStation Portable/) I tried to blog frequently, but life, as always, often makes you shift priorities. So in the past ten years I have done 77 blog post. 77! Not much of an output, that is for sure.
The past few years, I have tried to post more. The PS Vita, with its screen shot capabilities, makes I easy to add photos from games without taking them from elsewhere. I also find blogging fun. Sometime it might be a while between games or I get too busy to blog, but I always come back. Since the new year I have tried to do a post weekly, and even picked up new games to have something to review. I got at least two new games to review for the next two posts (Criminal Girls and Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Blackheart) but I might not post again until May afterwards. But this blog is still alive.
I will continue to post reviews of games, mostly PS VIta and PS4 (maybe even Xbox One, if I can get my hands on one) with the occasional book or movie review (and I plan on reviewing Avengers: Age of Ultron when it comes out.) I will continue this as long as it is fun and I still find it fun. It gives me an outlet to write (something that I wish I kept up) and an excuse to buy and play games.
So I hope all ten (not all of you are bots, right?) of my followers have enjoyed the past few months. Here’s to 10 years of blogging and lets hope I can break 100 posts before the end of the year…
