I’m going to admit it right now, I have had little to no inspiration lately with the whole blog thing. I think that’s going to change with the lessened amount of stress that I have in my head.
Let me be continue to be honest with you though: I might be a pretty big fan of MLG after that last event. Perhaps it’s because I finally realized how close to the inner circle one could get with a press pass and a few conversations. It’s nothing outrageous and it’s not like I could really call anyone I met a friend, but I could say someone like thegunrun is genuinely awesome. AskJoshy? The same.
Obviously I’m not important to most of the crowd, but being able to interact with them in a limited way is just invigorating as a fan of the community and someone who is trying to gain enough access to report what’s going on. While in that situation, I wouldn’t (and won’t) be able to report anything, I feel like the perspective that the situation gave me, in addition to the weekend as a whole, has only been a positive addition to my understanding of the scene.
I won’t be able to take advantage of the festivities that BlizzCon provides on an annual basis in Anaheim, but I think these two MLG events have filled my quota for being a no-one in the scene wishing to break into that semi-walled garden of esports as a journalist.
Anywho. I just wanted to rant for a bit.
Also, I wanted to share this tweet.[blackbirdpie url=”http://twitter.com/#!/bcarr/statuses/126036722235617283″]
