Blogging from the Beginning

My first blog, which was also a playground for me to learn and play with HTML, was a website I started with my then boyfriend as a way for us to connect across long-distance, and then utterly obsess about ourselves once we started living together. When we broke up, the blog was too painful to maintain.

And at that point, I had begun working on my second blog, at GameSpot.com, where I was soon to be a full-time employee. I kept that up, even after I left GameSpot, as a place where I would go to talk about video games... and mostly only video games.

But then there was a mass exodus from GameSpot, and in a way it feels like we've broken up too. Most of my friends have gone off to other places, started their own blogs, and I needed a change. I decided to start my third blog elsewhere, here, in the hopes that I would be able to talk about anything I wanted, and most importantly to me, be able to document the things that are happening to me, as they are happening.

So here's to new beginnings and new bloggings. It should be an interesting ride.

First!

I hope this means we can reconnect. It's been too long. :(

I always read your second blog and enjoyed your contributions to that site.
From now on I will keep track of this blog. I'm curious to see what you'll write about.

Great to hear from you again, Carrie. Don't worry. You don't know who I am. Just a one of your former GameSpot followers. :)

Cool. I look forward to hearing your views on various topics of gaming in the near future.

P.S I feel that the "spark" gamespot once had, is gone. good thing we got giantbomb.com now!

I've just started reading blogs as a mean of killing time

It's Carrie! Sweet. I might have some big news of my own re:gamespot in a week or two.

Hey there! What I wouldn't give to get you all blogging from the same location again. As long as you guys are still out there I guess I can't complain.

Sweet times, man, sweet times.

Awesome, another blog to keep me from doing what I should be, procrastination is more fun that people give it credit for.
Good to hear from you again.
