Well, like I mention on my front page, I'm relatively young at 19 years old- born in 1991 (the year the SNES was released in North America!). I've been an avid gamer for quite some years now- from my first console (a Sega Mega Drive) to the aforementioned SNES and my days on Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario, to the latest batch of consoles (Xbox 360, PS3 and DS). I'm now a huge gamer, spending most of my free time checking out gaming sites, listening to podcasts and playing every game I can get my hands on.
I started the blog to get my view of games out in the open and to make my hobby seem that bit more important. Eventually, I'd love to start working within games journalism, but for now, just enjoy my writing- reviews, previews and opinion pieces on video games.
I also write for 'The Gamer Scene', check out their website at www.thegamerscene.com for a fantastic podcast and great community, whilst my work at www.midlifegamer.net sees me writing on a daily basis the latest news, as well as regularly contributing thought pieces and other articles.
Having recently taken up the position of 'Reviews Editor' at www.gamersguidetolife.com, I look to continue to expand my knowledge of game reviews based journalism, and I'm currently looking at getting into podcasting somehow. If anyone is interested in co-hosting a possible show with me then get in touch.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions/ feedback or anything regarding posting on the site (which would be fantastic!). I will get back to you. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
