The past nine months or so of my life have been difficult. Not necessarily bad — sometimes bad, definitely, but sometimes not — but consistently challenging. Hence the fact that my blogging habits have plummeted from “once a day” to “once a month, maybe.” After posting to this site almost daily for more than 15 years, that honestly feels like defeat. I really want to turn it around.
I’m not making any promises along the lines of I’m back baby right now, because (1) I have no way to guarantee my life will suddenly ease up on the stress and challenges long enough to cooperate with my urges to write, and (2) who even cares anyway? But I’ll give it a go.
In the short term, I would like to post the past several months’ worth of Game Boy World videos for you to enjoy, because I used to keep the site up to date with that progress and, honestly, I’m pretty proud of the work I’ve been doing there.
I’m well aware that I’m far from being the most dynamic video personality on the Internet, but I put a lot of effort into writing, researching, and producing these videos. Thus they’re some of the best work I’ve ever created, despite the fact that it’s my voice droning awkwardly over top of badly played game footage. These videos also incredibly niche (I mean, check the view counts on these things sometime), which is why I have to produce them in my spare time. If I tried to produce a comprehensive Game Boy history video series on the clock for USgamer, I don’t think I’d be allowed to remain on staff for much longer.
But, honestly, the fact that this project appeals to such a tiny audience makes me more proud of it. That’s probably just a sign that I’ve become completely delusional in my old age, but oh well.
