You probably stumbled onto this blog by accident (or maybe it's featured somewhere as a newbie's first post). In any case thanks for reading! The reason I started this blog is simple. I write a lot of poetry. It is a passion of mine. A friend of mine named Max read one of my poems having to do with Super Mario Bros. and told me I needed to post it on a gaming community website. I thought about it, but didn't really take it too seriously.
I figured it's 2010, why not? I write about everything. But being who I am, I can't deny that video games played a HUGE role in growing up. Like most people on here I started with Super Mario Bros. and worked my way up. Its only fitting that some of my poems pay homage to those same games that got me where I am today.
Yes I do currently play games still. If you have an Xbox 360 my gamertag is Kburns10 (convenient isn't it?). Feel free to add me. So lets get down to it. What I hope to accomplish on this site:
I am no writer by any means (if that is not already apparent by what you have read so far). But I do take pride in my poetry. I'm no Walt Whitman either. But I feel like people can often relate to my poetry. I don't write about things too abstract. I hope that people will read (or listen if I make videos) to the poetry I post and comment. Whether you hated it or loved it, I always appreciate feedback. I also want to post things that aren't video game related. Maybe current news stories that annoy me, or some non-video game related poetry. Pretty much whatever comes to mind. I'm known for some of the crazy rants I go on sometimes, so maybe one of those will happen.
Anyway, before this turns into a novel, lets end it here. Thanks for checking out the blog! If you have any questions for me (like what got me started writing, favorite games, etc.) feel free to ask me! Also, check out the next entry for my first video game poem. Trust me, its a good one!
Until Next Time..
