Blogging – My Current Challenges

Something that I’m attempting to just power through, though still of concern, is the amount of material I have to draw from for my posts. When I started this blog I was focused primarily on games and gaming. A long-standing part of my life that I’ve had little time for in the last year. I used to write about Warframe weekly. I used to play FFXIV daily. I also used to at least try the free game(s) from Epic Games and talk about those every week.

At this point, I hardly have time to think about doing any one of those, much less all of them. I suspect I could carve out maybe an hour a day, at the most, but haven’t found anything I wanted to play enough to make the effort. This isn’t to say that I’ve stopped gaming entirely. I’ve spent about fifteen hours on the Legend of Mana Remaster over the last couple of weeks because it’s easy enough to play on the Switch whenever it’s convenient to do so.

Perhaps exploring the MMO options on Switch, few though they may be, is worth considering. Alternatively I could see what may or may not run on my laptop. I feel the MMO itch a bit, but really don’t see where there’s a lot of time to pursue one.

I’ve been in a bit of a reading no man’s land since I finished the Discworld series. I picked up a couple of non-fiction title, but like MMO games, reading is the sort of activity I can and will tend to focus on to the exclusion of all else. I have to be a bit careful or I’ll end up reading instead of writing, which is a bit counterproductive.

Unfortunately I don’t do much else. I don’t watch much tele. I’ve been ignoring YouTube. There just isn’t a lot to talk about outside of whatever is bouncing around inside my head. That can get repetitive quickly and isn’t always fit for public consumption.

On the bright side I’ve added a couple of things to my list just by writing this and still managed to find something to write about in the process. Smells like victory to me.

Y’all take care.

  1. Warframe is getting cross-play and cross-save later this year, so might be able to pick-up the Switch version of that and carry over your main save whichever platform that was on?

    Or if you have the means and interest, perhaps the Steam Deck might open up some portable options for you too. Although that, also, is later in the year.

    In terms of the here and now, I’m not sure!

    I can say though, it has been good to see you back — whether or not the topic is gaming. šŸ™‚

    1. Thank you!

      I had heard crossplay was coming at some point. It’s certainly something I’ll need to watch for. I’ll just have to see how they choose to handle separate accounts. Do I have to associate a Nintendo ID with my PC login and all that, because that could cause… problems. I’ll keep an eye on it.

      We’ll see about the Steam Deck. Could be great, could be a pain, hard to tell with Valve hardware.
