If you’ve been a long-term reader here you know I’ve been a fan of the popular and popular “lack of self-awareness” thing. I am not here to bash the idea of self-awareness, I just think it would be incredibly helpful to see it in a whole new light.
When I started my blogging life, I really didn’t know what I wanted to blog about. I was an IT professional who didn’t really know what I wanted to blog about. I wanted to blog about how great the products I work with were, but I didn’t know what I wanted to blog about. I think that’s where our blog started out, and I think it’s where we’ve stayed.
The thing is, if you don’t want to blog about whatever your blog topic is, you dont want to be blogging about it. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but it’s not a universal rule. We all started blogging about our hobbies and interests and how much time we had to spend on them, but I think that most of us started blogging about what we were doing for work without really knowing how to take on that “it” thing.
That’s what I mean when I say that approval xx is a blog that is about your work. We all want to be doing what we’re doing because we like it, but we don’t necessarily know how to take on it, either doing it or not. I think that our blog is an area that’s missing from the internet. We dont really know when it starts or stops, where we should be, or how to take on it.
The first time I ever tried to post about something on my blog, I was a senior in high school. I wrote a couple of posts for a few weeks, and then I realized that my blog was something I really didn’t want to be writing about. It was a way to put my thoughts out there to the rest of the world, but it wasn’t really about my work.
You’re not saying I should stop because someone has started shooting people now, but it happens that people who get it wrong have been doing it for a while, and that’s fine. To try and stay on the same level as the others is to fail.
I could have done this a lot more quickly. It was a lot more fun to be on the same page as other writers, but I wanted to write something better but also more constructive, more intelligent, and more useful to the people who write about it.
Just like you could be an author, you can be the author and a creator of games on Steam, or on Steam Pro, or something. You can be both.
The short answer: no. Because the game is still too much of a work in progress for someone who has not spent any time writing for it. And if you were to make an example, you might be guilty of being “the author”, but you also would be guilty of not being the creator of a game that people want to play. I know. I’m not saying there is nothing you can do if you are an author.
As it turns out, I can do both, which is why I write. I can write for the game as well as the game as an author.
