Today is the last day of the Newbie Blogger Initiative this year, where did the time go? I feels like just a few days a go I was setting up the blog and getting ready to publish my first post.
NBI gave me the motivation to finally start something I’d been thinking about doing for a while. I finally started a blog and I’ve posted at least once a week this month, often times more. It’s also taught me that if I don’t actively make an effort to stick to a posting schedule, the writing doesn’t get done. After a month of keeping up with it, I’m hooked. I enjoy the writing process and I like having my own little slice of the internet.
I’ve played a lot of games this month and I thought about games in a way I hadn’t before. Instead of just playing, I have started to think about what I think about a game or what would be interesting to post about.
I enjoyed most of NBI taking place on Discord. It felt more alive and interactive than a forum would have. While I may have not posted a lot in the Discord, I was always around checking out peoples articles and trying to keep up with chat. There are so many great people in the community with excellent advice and support. I’m so excited to be a part of it.
Until next year, So Long NBI!
