Today I got another blog award from LaterLevels. One of those awards that bloggers give each other to recognize each other for their work. If you want to read the article yourself to get more information, you should take a look at Kim’s post. This award is inspired by Michelle from A Geek Girl’s Guide. So, let’s get into answering some questions. And as usual, feel free to leave a comment with your answers and/or opinions on the article down below.
But before I reply to the questions, I have to thank Kim from LaterLevels of course for the recognition. She is a very kind hearted blogger who I look up to very much. Her content sometimes inspires mine. She is a great person and you really should check out her work on the LaterLevels website.
So the way that this award works is that Michelle has five standard questions everybody needs to answer and 5 questions need to be made up.
Why did you start your blog?
Well, I have told this story many times before on my blog. The TL;DR is, since childhood I have been into writing. While I have a rather small family, we do have a TON of family friends. And to avoid me telling the same story a million times at family gatherings, I have decided to write them and publish them. Not too long after, I started writing game reviews and that’s how the ball got rolling.
What are your favorite topics to write about?
My favorite articles to write are articles about indie games I have played. The ones I enjoy the most are the ones where the developer asks me for feedback and improvements. I just love helping small developers who have a small budget anyways, so some help in QA is welcome for them.
What have you learned since you started your blog?
This is a tricky question. I have been blogging for close to … yes, 10 years. So, to be able to pinpoint something specific that I learned about due to blogging. I think I mostly found my niche and expanded my skills.
If I have to say something, I think I fine tuned my writing and reviewing style. If you compare my current writing and style to my earlier writing, you will see a world of difference.
What do you love about being a geeky blog?
Simple, I love geeky things… so being able to write about geeky things is just amazing.
Where would you like to see your blog go in the future?
Actually, if I could dream, I would love to have some side income with my blog in the future. But I still want it to stay a hobby. In an earlier article, I have talked about how I’m afraid that if I would be blogging as a job, I would burn out. And burning out on one of my passions… No, thank you.
And now, LaterLevels has some questions for us.
How would you describe yourself if you could only use gaming terms?
I’m going to be sort of cheating here but I’m an INFJ or the advocate personality. And yes, these are gaming terms. D&D terms actually.
Who would be the worst video game character to be stuck in a lift with?
Zero III, just play Virtue’s Last Reward and you will get it.
If a game based on your life was made, what would be the genre and title?
Well, an adventure/action RPG. Mostly adventure RPG. The things that happen in my life are quite special.
Currently I’m in the wordsmith and merchant class. I have a lot of points in the tech skill.
Which three video game items would you take into the zombie apocalypse?
A ton of revives, Lara Croft’s classic pistols (those with unlimited ammo) and one of those fancy luxurious airships from the game you image.
Which gaming character should we elect as our next prime minister and why?
Booker Dewitt, and telling why would spoil Bioshock Infinite. So, yeaaaaahhhhh….
So, before I list the people who I like to nominate, I have five questions of my own. So, are you ready? Here we go.
- If your life has a soundtrack, which genre would it be?
- You are a parent of a video game character, who would you pick as your child and why?
- Which video game character you don’t want to meet in a mental asylum?
- Would you rather go to Silent Hill or Raccoon City?
- If real life had video game cheats, which ONE cheat would you like to have and why?
So now, who are my vic— fellow bloggers I nominate for an easy Q and A— I mean an award.
- Robert from AdventureRules
- Teri from SheikahPlate
- Nicki from TriformTrinity
- Luke from Hundstrasse
- My girlfriend, yes, why not. She wants to get back into writing and maybe this would be a way to help her to write her first article. (As she is sitting next to me while I was writing this article 🙂 )
So, with that said, I’m looking forward to the replies. Thank you to LaterLevels for the nomination. And tomorrow, I’ll publish another article and that will be about a game. But for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this article as much as I enjoyed writing it. I hope to be able to welcome you in another article and until then, have a great rest of your day and take care.
