Restarting the Blog (again)

I once again find myself in the position where this blog has become neglected for over a year now; how did that happen? Well, it’s a long story so I won’t bore everyone with the details, but the good news is things seem be winding down to some sort of regularity in my life (finally) and I’ve decided it’s time to get back on the horse and get this blog going again.

Besides getting actual content back in this space, there will also probably be a few changes regarding the layout of this blog. Nothing major I imagine as I am currently way too busy to work on a completely new design, but a few tweaks here and there would do this blog good. Next, let’s discuss content topics. The majority of content on this blog will probably remain eSports and design related. I also may throw in some sports stuff during baseball season when I get the itch.

As for myself, I recently started a new job working for a design consultancy in center city Philadelphia. It’s a very interesting change as the work is entirely internal business operations focused and not marketing or communications. Outside work, I continue to play games in my spare time and I’m currently looking forward to the release of the upcoming MMORPG Wildstar Online from Carbine Studios. (Fingers crossed for a beta key soon?)

Unfortunately, I don’t get to watch nearly the amount of eSports content as I used to, but I like to stay abreast of current events nonetheless. For those that might be wondering, I don’t see myself getting back directly involved in eSports despite it being something I want to return to in some capacity eventually. Given the state of the industry and how I perceive things (and who knows I could be wrong), 2013 seems to be looking like a year of transition and change given the release of HotS and maybe DotA 2 coming out of “beta?” Oh, and who knows what’s going to happen within the FPS genre with CS:GO, Firefall, Planetside 2, etc. etc.

That’s really all I have right now and kudos to those of you who made it down this far. I’ll leave you guys with this – until next time.
