The Sunshine Blogger Award – April 2019 Edition

Hello everyone and today I’m going to be answering questions that came from being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I love doing these prompts/awards.

I was nominated for this previously in November but here we are again, this time nominated by The Gaming Diaries! Incase anyone has forgotten the rules…

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Now let’s get on with it, shall we?

Some More Updates

It seems like I keep making updates. This time around they’re small ones, though. So small I don’t even need to insert a read more into this post.

A new series is starting! Yes, with the start of Game of Thrones comes a new series to this blog calledFor the Throne. Thanks to everyone on Twitter who voted to help me narrow down the choices. You can now see it in the menu bar, though it has nothing in it for the moment because the show hasn’t started yet.

Who else is super pumped for April 12? It occurred to me that I’m most likely going to be at work when the show will be on – so either I’m streaming it live somewhere or watching it the next day. We’ll see, but ideally the For the Throne posts will be out on Monday. Ideally.

Patreon has new perks for all tiers! Not a very major update, but every tier now comes with access to posts before they get published. Either it will be 2 days, 1 day, just a few minutes (in the case of this one). I wanna try to promote this a little more and give better rewards I’m actually capable of, and I figured this would be a start.

That’s about all I’ve got for now. Till next time when I hopefully have a lot more to stay.

Short And Sweet

This post is inspired by this Daily Inkling by Matt, which is inspired by a Twitter exchange between the two of us, and to keep it short and sweet but still relatively grammatically correct, I want everyone to know that Avengers Endgame is going to run for 3 hours and 2 minutes, and that I am considering buying adult diapers to get myself through it without having to get up and pee – not that I would anyway, because I have a camel bladder and my ass will not be leaving its seat until the lights in the theater come back on.

Why I’m Not a True Gamer

You guys know the drill by now. Inspired by this Daily Inkling. Thank you Matt. Blah blah blah. Eventually I’ll have motivation and inspiration to write a post that isn’t based off an Inkling. But until then, this is what we’re all gonna get.

I’ve been apart of two gaming collaborations thus far in my blogging career – The Games that Define Us, which I totally credit for literally success I’ve achieved thus far, and Tracking Shells which is coming this Thursday. However, there is a reason why you hardly see me speak about games other than the Pokemon post, a first impression of a Nintendo game like Smash, and a lot of Sims.

But other than that, you see nothing. Sure, I get excited about other games that come out for other consoles – i.e KINGDOM HEARTS – but I try to stay out of it because I don’t like to consider myself a gamer.
