One of the problems with maintaining a blog like this for so long is the diversity of the readership it picks up. This necessitates a careful selection of subject matter that remains interesting to enough people without watering it down so much as to make it bland. Gaming is obviously a major hobby of mine, but I am aware it is one that is one shared by less than half of my core readership. As such I tend to avoid serious in-depth game discussion on a regular basis, preferring to throw in the odd snippets where particularly relevant.
This has led me to trial a new experiment, involving the blogging feature of GameSpot, where I have been a paying subscriber for several years. I have started a separate blog there entitled “The cheese was innocent!” (fans of the new episodic Sam & Max games should get the reference) which is solely focused on gaming. That is not to say gaming will disappear from this blog. In fact the plan is that if you continue only to read P-2006 you should not notice any difference at all. However innocent cheese enables me to write additional posts of a purely game-related nature without worrying about alienating readers. Meanwhile here I will just point out particularly important posts like my discussion of The Byron Report.
For those using feed readers it’s even easier since you can subscribe to the feeds of both blogs and read them side by side. You’ll find the new feed conveniently listed on P-2006’s Feeds page.
Finally since I’ve found my camera has been lying docile more than I would like, to stir a little creativity I’m producing a series of small images so you’ll start find unrelated illustrations at the bottom of many posts. I’m not sure quite how long it will last but I hope you enjoy them while they do.
