Hey what's up it's SgtRevDrFunk and we're back with more Let's Play Blogger 2!
Hey, that's how I introduce my Youtube Videos so I figured it would work here too. Some of you may know that I already have a blog called Either Way. So why do I need one here on GDC? Because I can, and because I have a lot of ideas, and a blog on something like GDC suits those ideas pretty well. I'm pretty stoked about this new feature myself, and when I read Andres' initial post about it, I immediately started thinking about what I could use it for...other than plugging my...for lack of a better word "real blog."
I came to a surprising number of satsifying conclusion. Yes, I'll post excerpts and links to my other projects here, since I will most definitely still want hits on them, but there will also be a lot of original stuff. For one, "lifestyle" entries, which are basically me writing down my thoughts on where I currently am in life, are much better suited for a social setting like this, so they're going here. Shorter, quicker, spur of the moment entries based on songs or Youtube videos I happen to like or be addicted to are also going to pop up, and honestly, those are what I'm most excited about, since I'll often come across something I really like and have nowhere to share it with just the right amount of thought added to it. Other little bits of writing that I do might be something I put here too...yknow, since my Writing Thread is a little...RevDrFunk'd...which is a pun that sounded waaaay better in my head. And finally, I'm definitely going to come up with some sort of collab projects, since I think the "allowing other users to update your blog" is a super interesting feature...I just haven't figured out quite how.
So basically this is going to be a less formal version of Either Way, which will remain my main blog and have the longer, overthought posts on it. This GDC Blog thing is a pretty nifty idea, and it'll be my challenge to find some ways to use it beyond plugging my other blog.
Speaking of which...check out my latest blog post on Either Way, about the Foo Fighters' presence at the Grammys: The Last Name in Rock. (I was planning to post one on Pokemon today but...yeah, hasn't quite happened.)
And ah hell, check out the latest episode of my Lets Play of Fire Emblem, wherein I scream like a little girl:
wow! blogs on GDC!
hooray for new inventions!
i'll just be putting things up like rants, and when i post a new chapter of something in my threads, or just my basic outlook on life when i feel like it.
i'll try not to be too annoying.
Alright, so we've decided to add in the blog system into GDC. This will allow you guys a place to post your writing. It can be whatever you want. I'd love to see people using it in different ways. If you have something you feel like writing, wehther it be Green Day related or not, I look forward to seeing how you guys use this.
Maybe you have some short stories or poetry you'd like to share, this would be a pretty good place to do it. Maybe you want to write your own thoughts about something Green Day related but can't quite figure out where to do it, you should try it here.
You can also assign other members the ability to write on your blog - so you guys can group together and publish one thing.
I really don't know what this will be yet, but I'd love to see how people are using it and make sure we find a useful way to highlight stuff posted here.
Also, let me know if you guys have any problems questions or anything else. I'm brand new to this as well, so who knows how it works. Hah.
