10 Reasons to Start a Gaming Blog

So as way of introduction to our blog, Deanna and I thought we would tell a little bit about why we started this blog....ok truth be told Deanna thought it would be a good idea to do, and I went along with the idea.  Be sure to read her post, because it's going to have lots of great reasons for you.  Here are mine...oh..and...uh... they aren't going to be so great...:

1. Deanna said "Hey I am starting a gamer blog, you do lots of Facebook gaming, want to start it with me?"  I said "Hey sure why not??"

2. I don't think things through.

3. To my way of thinking, gaming site = games to review, thus "Free" Games (Yes, bloggers I know it's not really free...but see #2).

4. With 3 boys, 2 cats, a knitting business, a successful blog, and a house to clean, I don't have enough on my plate, I wanted to do something to help fill in the spare seconds of the day.

5. I saw they have a new NASCAR game, and haven't had any luck getting to review it yet (see reason #3).

6. I need more friends to play Running With Friends with (b/c I have no friends), and so I thought this would be a good way to get them (send me a game request: Shairbearg)

7. I am addicted to Farmville 2, and Candy Crush and need to share that love with the world.

8. Because I have hard core gaming friends, and I want to seem like a cool kid.

9. Because some games are no fun, and I want to warn others about them.

10. I wanted a project to work with Deanna on and this seemed like a good one.  We actually both bring very different things to the table.  

In all seriousness, I really did join Deanna because I thought it was an awesome idea, and wanted to jump on board.  I didn't really consider myself a real "gamer", but she pointed out that any gaming is gaming. I felt like there were others out there like me, who aren't into all the hard core gaming, but enjoy games, and they might be able to relate to me.


  1. I am not majorly hardcore, but I have been playing nintendo since I was like 6 LOL!!!

  2. I have to say that this post had me laughing out loud. You crack me up! :)

    I'm a mild-core gamer. ;) And @sydney - long live Nintendo! :)

  3. d10 roll says reason #8 is the best one.

  4. Funny,not a hard core game but I do like the dancing games

    1. Me too! And our boys are hooked on the Disney Just Dance game!

  5. I used to be addicted to first-person shooters and role-playing games when I was younger, but not so much anymore. You did point out to me that I still do play a few computer games -- just ones that require less involvement.

  6. I've been trying to talk my 20 year old son into writing a gaming blog! He's into all kinds of games, computer games, Wii and Xbox 360, plus board games, too! I'll have to show him your blog for some inspiration! ;)

  7. I love that women are gamers! I too love games, I'm a PC gamer, and I find that it is mostly guys who game and participate in the forums. Nice to see more women getting involved!
