It's been a quiet Sunday for me, and I've spent the day doing a bunch of nothing, aside from the usual Internet stuff. No yard work, no fence building, no cleaning, nada, nothing. It was a day of meditation, and thinking. I had a lot to think about.
I usually don't check my blog stats, but the other day I looked at them, and was surprised when I saw the number of page views for June. There were over 4,000 page views! Wow! Considering HDWT has over 10,000 page views since I started, that's quite a number for one month, especially considering I only made four posts in June. Then I realized it was probably traffic driven by the "social contract" controversy. I made several comments, on a couple of different blogs, and I guess that's where the traffic came from. Oh well...
I was also thinking the same things about gaming. Do I make the effort of trying to find a new group? Work on some material for a campaign? Just give up, and play MMORPGs? There are quite a few things I need to concentrate on, but I enjoy gaming too much to just give up. Everybody needs a hobby.
When TARGA went belly up I was disappointed because I wanted to get involved, and really promote gaming as a hobby. I'm thinking about ways I can do that, but haven't come up with any concrete ideas yet.
All things considered, I'm feeling better about things. There's a fire in my belly that hasn't been there for a very long time.
If you read my post yesterday, you know I applied to be a judge of the Ennies, which might be considered odd given my recent criticisms of the Ennies. Well, today I received an email from Tony Law, the Business Manager ( head honcho ) of the Ennies. *Cue ominous music* And so I leave you with a cliff hanger, because I want to discuss the Ennies, the email, and my decision to campaign to be a judge in a post tomorrow.
