A few things inspired me to try yet again. First and foremost, fellow blogger and close friend, Jordan, has done an amazing job with her fashion blog Opal & Violet. She posts frequently and does a great job of capturing her unique style. I've also been inspired a number of times by Logan over at Rememorandom, another friend who has an excellent blog. Secondly, I now have a focus. Before, I was really all over the place with sports, Harry Potter, television, gaming, movies, etc... Now? The Retro Raconteur is all about gaming. I may throw in an occasional tech post (it does relate to gaming after all) and maybe mention a movie from time to time, but the main focus here is the video game industry. I have a focus and vision I didn't have before.
Video games have long been my passion. I've joked with my wife before and said I would be totally fine to live in a retirement home when I'm old - so long as I have the latest console with a steady supply of games. I say that partially in jest, but what makes video games so great is they provide us with an opportunity to relax, to be entertained, to engage with others, and perhaps most importantly, they allow us to escape from and clear our minds of life's hardships.
