When I posted a brief excuse to the lowercase esports podcast feed earlier in March, I was confident that I just needed a little bit of time to get my mind over a few things, and that normal programming would … Continue reading

I was thinking about walking over to a local sushi place for lunch, but instead, I’ve ended up in the sun room at the house with my laptop out, the ELEAGUE stream showing Immortals giving EnVyUs the L. After thinking about what I was going to do with the rest of my day, I’m still not settled on what I’m going to do.
Thirty, today. Maybe I should get my hair cut. Or sushi. I dunno. The world is my oyster, today. At least until Super Mario Run goes live. pic.twitter.com/ZzByVAocPQ

Okay. Maybe I can make a quick run for sushi. I’ve been craving it.
Nothing to seriously report here, but I’ve re-added the link to the contact info page back to the site. It’s just details regarding another couple of email addresses, but they’re addresses that I check all of the time and feel … Continue reading
I’ve made one of these posts before using the same title. And yet, I’ve committed another exodus from this blog to Medium. And once again, I’m returning to this WordPress installation that I’ve had online for years.
In an age where Twitter’s stability and timeline seem to be getting more constrained every day top the point where the social media platform’s sunset years (or quarters) are in front of it, I just feel like the platform where I’m the most at home at isn’t exactly the most dependable place to put my ideas going forward. While it still exists, I’m going to use it, rest assured.
As far as why I’m moving back to the blog from Medium, I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t live up to the massive amount of writing and formality that Medium seems to bring for my longer-than-a-tweet content. I like Medium as a platform. I like the design of everything on Medium. The editor is brilliant. The functionality of publications and profiles makes sense to me.
I think Medium will find more success from users and freelance writers who’ve actually spent time honing their writing skills. It’s fair to say that I don’t have that experience and ability, as much as I’d like to have thought that I could be a news writer or some sort of journalist about esports or anything else, really. I just want to write snarky posts that drip in sarcasm and skepticism (potentially ignorance) on a site that I control and own.
So yeah. Smaller posts. More direct writing. Less feeling like I have to write epic dissertations. More thinking like I can use the blog to help keep up without giving others a feed overload.
I’m going to try.
Shortly after I started the lowercase esports podcast, I came to the conclusion a one-man-show podcast that episodes needed to have some sort of structure. Without some sort of very basic order, I found I could not keep the central … Continue reading
