In which I wonder aloud who all my readers actually are!
Starting a blog is something of an act of faith, of the ‘build it and they will come’ variety (to continue yesterday’s baseball theme). It necessarily starts off as a performance without an audience. And although my readship remains, shall we say, ‘select’, it’s been fun to watch how the numbers of visitors and feed subscribers have been trending very slowly upwards.
But curiosity has got the best of me! So this post is an open call to anyone reading it to drop by and leave a quick comment. If you can say who you are, where you’re from, and why you’re reading my ramblings on board game design, then I’d be (as us Brits say) chuffed to bits. (Being ‘chuffed to bits’ is, as painful as it sounds, a good thing, in case you were wondering.)
Perhaps, like Jackson Pope you are an adventuring game publisher, or like W. Eric Martin a tireless reporter of the industry, or like Dennis Hoyle an educator interested in applying board game mechanics in the workplace, or like Lorien Green a documentary film-maker interested in designer board games, or like me a hobbyist game designer with dreams of board gaming glory… or none of the above.
So, who, where and why are you? (With grateful thanks in advance for your time!)
