Semester of Blogging in Review

Over the course of 4-5 months, I have been blogging on over Fighting Games, a topic I feel passionate about. I kept a somewhat consistent pace of 1 update per week, and I find that rather enjoyable. However, there were some moments I had that made me realize that if I were to have to work at a much faster pace, the stress would override all other satisfaction I received for blogging.

Through my experience, I found both WordPress and Twitter easy and fun tools to use, though I don’t know how effectively I was in using them for promotion. I only used WordPress to update my own content, not explore other people’s works, and I only used Twitter to examine other people’s works (doing the bare minimum of posting on Twitter for my own content). Something I definitely need to improve on is getting comfortable with promoting myself on Twitter more often.

King of Fighters XIII was another game I wasn't able to cover, as I never had enough time to fully play enough for a satisfactory review. Image found at http://www.zerochan.net/full/713205

At least I was able to learn all about the tools needed for succession in online media; I can make use of those tools in the future once I really find what I wish to promote. It’s not that I don’t enjoy blogging about Fighting Games, I do; in fact, I wish I had more experience so I could review more games, as described in the image captions, to name a few, not to mention EVO 2015, which would take me 6-7 posts to cover to it’s full extent. I just feel like this isn’t my calling and would like to put the time I would be using for more blogging into something more appealing to me on a personal level.
