I am pleased to be a part of the Newbie Blogger Initiative. Have you ever thought about writing your own gaming blog? Do you want to know how to get recognized? Do you need help setting up your blog? Do you have an idea on what you want to talk about? Do you want to make money on your gaming blog? Would you like to know my secrets of success? Over the next month I will post some very helpful articles to help you get your new blog off the ground. I will take the time to teach you about some important mistakes I made initially, and how you can avoid them. I will explain to you what works for me, and what failed.
If this is the first time you have discovered my blog than I welcome you. I will start by giving you a brief glimpse into how I began my gaming blog. I always was a huge game forums person. I enjoyed engaging with other players, and the relationships I built allies, and enemies in the game. I wanted to take it a step further. Unfortunately on forums your topics can easily be lost, and drop off very quickly. I wanted a better way to talk about the games I was playing.
I discovered my first gaming blog by visiting Werit's Blog. I liked what I saw, and decided I wanted to create my own Warhammer Online blog. In the next few days I created Warhammer Blog Times. It became pretty successful in my eyes as a newbie blogger. I can't remember the exact numbers, but I had about 35 views a day. I posted multiple times a day on some days, but eventually lost interest in playing the game and writing about it.
I moved on to a new blog I created called Aion Tavern. I initially loved the game, and once again my blog was pretty successful at the time. I was drawing a whole new crowd of viewers who were interested in Aion. This blog didn't last very long. The horrible grind in the game made people leave the game in droves.
Once again I was stuck without a blog again. It was after these two initial blogs that I realized I needed to make a general gaming blog so I could talk about any game, and not have to rebuild my viewership every time. My blog is a little over two years old now, and I have talked about many, many different games I have played. My daily traffic is more than I ever dreamed it would be so create your new gaming blog today, and join the community.
