Creative Blogger Award


Like the Liebster before it, I have now been nominated for the creative blogger award, which is still essentially the same thing — less heavy on the questions, heavier on the chain letter aspects. We’ll start with the rules:

  • Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify them via their social media/blogs.
  • Thank and post the link of the person who nominated you.
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers.
  • Pass on the rules.

Sharing 5 facts will definitely be easy, and though I know I could probably collate a list of 15-20 blogs worth nominating, that seems like an annoyance because other bloggers will end up passing this along, and if I name that many it might take away from someone else’s post. So I’ll limit myself to a few. 6 sounds like a good number.

Murf of Murf Versus was kind enough to nominate me for this prestigious award (there’s prize money right?), and for that I give thanks. There’s a running joke that me and Murf are rivals (I believe Eri started that one) but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I feel like there’s a mutual respect there and though we don’t see eye to eye on everything, we do have a great deal in common. He comes up with great creative ideas for articles and it seems like he’s a much better writer than I, most of the time. So thanks for giving me some blog fodder Murf, and keep doing what you’re doing.

5 random things about me:

  1. I’ve played League of Legends for more years than any one MMO. My longest solid tenure in a single MMO was approximately 2.5 years. I’ve been playing LoL for 4.
  2. Despite having been a gamer for 30 years, I think the last 5 years or so have been the best. Not only for games, but for the culture.
  3. I would die without the Internet. Not really, but I’m not looking forward to any apocalypse scenarios.
  4. If you told me I could only have one beverage for the rest of my life, I’d choose Arizona Raspberry Iced Tea.
  5. If you told me ten years ago how much different my life would be today, I wouldn’t have believed you. Coming to grips with life is a huge challenge for everyone, myself included.

As for nominations, here’s a few people you should check out, one way or the other:

  • Eri of Healing the Masses. My podtatoe in crime, she’s always up to something interesting, and her rants are priceless.
  • Lady Ashmo of A Freckle For Your Thoughts. She’s my sister, sure, but she’s also a very creative blogger.
  • Doone of XP Chronicles. Another great writer who thinks outside of the box, his way of bringing the real world into your gaming space is unparalleled.
  • Welshtroll of the blog of the same name. Another MOBA fan, he’s been MIA for a while and I’m just trying to wake him up.
  • The Ranzington Scouts: Their blog is nothing but creative writing, so it seems natural.
  • Mr Luvva Luvva, because he’s always posting cool lists and talks about a large variety of games.
