Those of you who follow me on Twitter would probably already know that I have been writing for GamersSphere for some time. You might also know that I have been trying to get my own monetizable blog running for some time. The simple fact, it seems, is that I do not have the time between a busy work schedule and other life commitments (you know, like marriage) to get a site of that nature up and running on my own. Does this mean I will never make anything off my work? It is my sincere hope that I will, but I feel the best course to income, at this point, is to take what I have and contribute it to something that already has a solid foundation.
In this case, I am referring to Gamers Sphere. This crew of skilled and fun people has been kind and accepting of my work and my beliefs. Let’s be honest, most sites would not want too much Crotchety, but I hand it out by the pound. GS has encouraged me to do things my way in the name of diversification simply because they are open-minded and some of them genuinely like my sense of humor. So, to avoid doubling my work and making life harder on myself and my dear wife, I am going to start writing explicitly for GS. Let’s face it, if I don’t move on I really will just end up a crotchety old man with a free blog! I have already started putting up my work on GS, but the big change here is that I will no longer be maintaining this blog space. Thank you to all of my readers who have been with me since the beginning! You ladies and gentlemen have been great so far, and it is my earnest hope that you will continue to work and game with me over at my new home! I mean, I will still be doing the same thing I always do, just over in a new location! In addition to my regular writing on indie games, I will also be writing about news, AAA titles and mainstream culture. I am already playing through The Evil Within and I will be doing a stream of the game very very soon, if I haven’t done it already! I will be maintaining my Twitter, Facebook page and my Tumblr feed, those places will just start directing you to my work over at GS!
With this move I only expect to better myself as a writer and game critic. Thank you to all who have stayed with me this long and let’s keep gaming! And always remember to Be Crotchety!
