Where has the time gone?
Five years ago today, I posted this, the first post on this blog. It was just a simple little welcome message, written simply because I wasn’t sure what to write on my first blog.
The first few posts were like that too. Wondering what I should be writing, and then struggling to get the words out. A single post at the time would easily take 90 minutes to write. I certainly wasn’t what one would call a wordsmith.
Five years later I’m still not what I would call a wordsmith, but my writing has evolved along with me, and I find it far easier to get the words out now; most posts take less than half an hour. Hopefully my readers have noticed some improvement too.
I started Stropp’s World talking about World of Warcraft, and that was going to be the primary topic of this blog. It was after all part of the play on words that I intended with the title, but over time Stropp’s World has covered a lot of the games that I play, and a lot of commentary on other aspects of the gaming world as well, with the occassional rant over censorship and harsh DRM.
Starting my own business has put a bit of dent in my posting, as well as game play schedule, but I do still find the time for some gaming occassionally. And I still keep a track of the gaming news, especially some of the up and coming games like The Secret World.
While posting here is less frequent, I still intend to keep the blog going. After all I’m still a gamer, and more than anything else, I enjoy blogging about the games I play. Who knows, in five years I might be celebrating the 10th birthday of Stropp’s World.
Thanks for coming on the ride!
