Let’s give this a shot

Some quick background information about me to kick things off:

I had a regularly updated gaming blog on GameDaily for the past 3-4 years, but when AOL purchased us, of course some things changed. They relaunched the blog section as GameDailyXL and I stopped blogging there. From what I was told by a superior, there was apparently a corporate issue with having part-timers writing on the blog, and continuing to blog for the site would have involved waiting for them to sort things out. Ultimately I thought it was more trouble than it was worth, especially since the tone and style of the blog section had changed beyond my liking.

So this is version 2 of my former blog “Wolf’s Howl”. The primary focus per usual will be on gaming and gadgetry, but I slip into digressions about other topics like Asian dramas and music often enough. As I start medical school in a few months and begin my professional training, I imagine that will become a frequent subject as well.

As of now, the aesthetic design of this page is minimal, to say the least. I may put some effort into personalizing it some more soon. In the meantime, enjoy the default template, hooray! I’ve been poking around WordPress and I’m happy to call this place home. There’s a quite powerful and intuitive backend available here and I look forward to working with it in the coming future.

Something I’ll definitely miss about blogging for GameDaily: a guaranteed audience. I’m starting from zero here, but I mostly write for my own amusement anyway. If you want to join me for the ride, welcome aboard.
