NBI 2016: Blogging can be life-changing

Yes, I admit, the headline is probably a bit too dramatic. ;) So before you get too excited: Blogging will not make you rich and it is very unlikely that you will become famous. However, looking back at the past five years with this blog, a few things happened that did influence our lives in … Continue reading NBI 2016: Blogging can be life-changing

Newbie Blogger Initiative 2016 in June!

Not too long ago, I saw a short conversation on Twitter about how NBI would most likely not be taking place in 2016. Not because nobody wanted to do it per se, but most of all because it requires time and dedication to get this initiative off its ground. That dreaded real life again making … Continue reading Newbie Blogger Initiative 2016 in June!

The Seven Gaming Sins – NBI 2015 Talkback Challenge #4

The 4th "Newbie Blogger Initiative" topic has been released this weekend: "The Seven Gaming Sins". This one is not a single topic that you can write about, but seven questions instead. What they focus on is probably rather obvious... ;) So, here you go. My answers to Joseph Skyrim's seven gaming sin questions. Lust - … Continue reading The Seven Gaming Sins – NBI 2015 Talkback Challenge #4

“What made you a gamer?” – NBI 2015 Talkback Challenge #3

This post is part of the Newbie Blogger Initiative and the third Talkback Challenge asking "What made you a gamer?"

Blogging in a foreign language

I had wanted to write this post as part of the Newbie Blogger Initiative, but due to real life, I couldn't. I figured now that it's NaBloPoMo and I need every topic I can find to fill this blog with relatively reasonable blog posts, I can still write about this "issue". ;) When I started … Continue reading Blogging in a foreign language

Newbie Blogger Initiative 2013

The Newbie Blogger Initiative 2 is starting tomorrow. Some of you may remember that last year, Syp from Bio Break had initiated the first round. The result of the NBI was a forum filled with questions surrounding blogging, helpful answers and discussions. Additionally, several people started blogging as a result. Unfortunately, the forum where most … Continue reading Newbie Blogger Initiative 2013

NBI: Time to say goodbye

It's the last day of May which means that the Newbie Blogger Initiative will be over on midnight. It's been a very interesting month and I got to read what other bloggers had to share. While I have been around for a long time (more than one year with Nerdy Bookahs and a very long … Continue reading NBI: Time to say goodbye

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (May 25, 2012)

Welcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch! The place about miscellaneous interesting news related to gaming (will most likely include at least one piece about Guild Wars 2 ^^). We've heard sad news yesterday: 38 studios layed off all their employees yesterday (including all from Big Huge Games). What I found fascinating and encouraging was how fast … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (May 25, 2012)
