My 10 Minutes?
I’ve been keeping a game-specific blog on 1up.com for a little over 3 years. My favorite part of reading video game magazines was reading the letters section from other readers, and the blogs on 1up are like a never ending letters section of a great video game magazine!
I usually use it to capture what I was thinking about a given game (it is fun to re-read years later). Sometimes I think I have an original thought or response to something I read or heard regarding games and just want to get it recorded somewhere. Most of the time I would like to get genuine responses from other enthusiasts and see a topic from other perspectives… when that happens it feels like an interactive letters section.
Today my annual “loot drop” post, generally about the gaming goodness I received for Christmas, was highlighted in the “community spotlight” on the front page of the site! That is really exciting!
