10 Years is a long time on the Internet
Yep. It turns out today is the tenth anniversary for my little blog.
When I started writing this blog a decade ago, it was with the intention of recording my wargames - at a time when I was just managing to get regular gaming in again - and to do more writing, to stir some creative juices.
It has worked to a point, though gaming levels have fluctuated wildly over time, presently being on something of an enforced low; whilst my creative juices are tending to flow into other projects at the moment. Nonetheless I'm pleased I've managed to keep it going this far, and I do hope to continue when time permits.
So far as wargames, my last one was a month ago, but if I could rely on one a month I would feel I was doing well, half that rate seems more plausible, Painting continues, with a regiment of French Napoleonics on the table at the minute, but the Masters study rather intrudes upon the time for such trivialities. Add to that a return to the mountains for a couple of snowboarding trips this winter and you have many reasons why the blog output has been low.
Time, opportunities and motivation. But everything is cyclical. There are some topics I want to address in the future at some point, as well as the completion or continuation of some projects. I won't expect a 20 year anniversary, any more than I did the 10th; but you never know....
