This is me trying to look cool!!

Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words. – Mark Twain

Well…hello to you all, and welcome to my blog.

As you can see, this is a TOTALLY brand new blog and, as you can also definitely see…it’s little bare right now.

But never fear, this will hopefully change in the future. I say hope because this is my first attempt at writing a blog.

‘So why have i started a blog’ you ask? (cue to readers saying ‘no we didn’t!!)

I began to write this blog because I’ve always been interested in writing a blog, but I’ve never really had a strong enough reason to write about something, except about my life and my interests. Something that I think I should hopefully be good at. I also think it’s a great opportunity to give me a reason to rekindle some old interests and pursue some new ones.

Anyway, here is a list of areas that I will cover over many of my future postings I have and what I will be writing!

  • Video Games – I was born at the perfect time, where gaming was becoming mainstream, where your school friends were dictated by owning either a Nintendo or Sega. In the years since i was introduced to my first console, gaming has evolved so much, graphically and technologically, but culturally also. I will attempt to write about the games i play, my history with gaming, and perhaps some more….probably.
  • Sci-fi – Of course I am a sci-fi geek, all areas and aspects are taken to account, and painstakingly reviews and criticise the tiniest imperfection. From Trek to Wars and other franchises, I’ll cover them all.
  • Movies/TV Shows- I do love a good film or TV show. To be honest, I also love a crap one too….purely for mockery and humour purposes.
  • Music – My other passion in my life, I have a very eclectic and expansive musical background. I can also play a few instruments too.
  • Photography – I’ve always had a good eye for taking a picture and capturing a moment, but unfortunately I’ve never took the hobby seriously (perhaps the blog might help??)
  • Other random things – The ramblings of a mad-man, occasionally, and only occasionally, things can irk me, and ‘Grind My Gears’ per say.
  • And how can I not talk about my Cat – The unique oddity that is … Smudge.

So there you have it, my first ever blog post, and hopefully the start of many more. Apologies if things look crap and out of place, I will be tinkering and sorting things out over the coming weeks, once i got a few posts up.

However, If anyone out there has any advice or tips on a budding blogger starting by all means leave a comment below.

James is 30 (but chances are he could be older, just for the fact that he may forget to update this) and lives on the Wirral, England. By day he works as a Software Tester. By night.....he mainly sleeps, but enjoys playing games, seeing movies, reading and music. He tries to find humour wherever he is. Essentially, if you chuckle while your reading them then he's done something right....which is a rarity.
