Geek Ink Updates: We had a good run…

I’m putting the blog on ice. Or at least into refrigeration?

P.S. Lot’s of naughty words follow, so read at your own peril.

Geek Ink Updates: Still alive

This blog and I are still alive, but university has been devouring all my time for the last few weeks. I can’t believe that I’m actually saying this, but I’ll be glad when I get back to work. Until then, everyone is just going to have to wait. I’ll have a more detailed update when I finish classes next week. Ciao!

Geek Ink Updates: So a small piece I wrote got published on the upcoming 2016 EGE Expo

I wrote a small piece on the upcoming EGE Expo for the Cape Times. It got published fairly intact which I was quite chuffed with. However, I have mailed them asking that they change the title of “gaming expert” to gaming/geek blogger/journalist/writer. While I do know a lot about the games industry, I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on the subject. At least my suggestions match up with my qualifications (journalism was part of my undergrad).

Geek Ink Updates: University crunch time!

Hey folks. Just popping by to let you know I’m going to be pretty damn busy for the next three weeks so things are going to be pretty quiet over here at Geek Ink. I have the final versions of two design plans due in on Monday, and then a 4000-6000 word essay due two weeks after that.

This could have been a very different story, as I had a registration issue that affected my completion of one of the earlier modules that I worked on. Thankfully the university made the sane decision and saw I had submitted all my work, so it would be unfair to fail me on that module (which would have prevented me from completing the program this year) because of a clerical error.

Anyway, I will try to squeeze in some content or updates, but I’m not making any promises.

Geek Ink Thinks: 10 things I’ve learnt during 7 years of blogging (updated)

On Saturday I got a little message from WordPress wishing me a happy seventh anniversary. I was writing inconsistently for the first four of those, but have been writing regularly since 2014. Here’s a few things I’ve learnt about blogging since I first started.

P.S. I will be releasing this as a Youtube video/podcast if you feel like waiting for version instead.

Geek Ink Updates: What to do with the blog?

I am always torn in how to present things here at Geek Ink. Part of me wants to try and earn a living off writing here, which generally means more focus in terms of the subjects I talk about (in this case film/anime related articles/reviews). But another part of me really wants a space to talk about the things that are important or fun for me (personal issues, politics, gaming, relationships), even if it “dilutes” the focus of the site and possibly affects any potential revenue it might have in the future.

What to do, what to do…
