In the Beginning...

The indefatigable Johnn Four recounted the tale of how he discovered RPGs in this week's Roleplaying Tips issue. That got me thinking about a gaming blog of my own, again, and I decided that there are few ways more natural to start one than the story of how it all began!

In a World Where Blogging Is Expected...


You're probably thinking, "What, another blog? Weren't there enough already?" (If you weren't, now you are.) Truth be told, I debated starting my own blog for several years, pro and con. Judging by the home page I used to have once upon a time, I'm not the hottest updater in the world. Also, for a long time, I was not at all convinced that I have anything to say that could in any way be relevant to anyone else. And what's the point of having a blog if you're not speaking words of great wisdom at regular intervals?

But then I realised that's not what I believe. I believe it's not necessary to be best, as long as you're honest. I believe that you can seldom tell in advance what will come in useful later. And I believe in doing what you can, in the hope that it will help someone, somewhere. After all, this is the Internet, and it's theoretically possible to reach anyone.

This past year has been one of great learning and personal growth for me. I won't be talking about that, here. ^_^ (Not much, at any rate.) Most lessons I only figured out long after the fact. I've come to terms with the fact that there are people who have benefitted from knowing me. I hope the next year will bring more.

So, hello. Nice of you to drop by. Please come again - and leave a note if you feel like it.
