So Long For Now – Blog Hiatus

Yep that’s right. I’m going to be taking a break from writing for Mind of MrGseff. When I return; I cannot say, though I will explain myself.

I started this blog almost 4 years ago simply because I enjoyed writing essays for Media Studies during my time in sixth form, I decided that I would start writing my opinion on things outside of school and start publishing them online, originally it was made to help those doing Media Studies in AS and A level media as a source that was reliable but not too academic to the point of being boring.

I like to think I succeeded in that.

As the years went on, I decided that writing was something I wanted to do as a full time job, this meant putting more work into this blog in order to increase my chances of writing what I like but on a more professional level where I could network with others.

I can tell you, I have succeeded at that too.

I started looking for voluntary writing jobs that could be considered professional writing jobs and one of the job posts that jumped out at me was one for a company called GamerTime. They only asked for a few articles a week and when speaking to the owner; he was very understanding of the fact I’m still a student with many other responsibilities meaning I can’t write every day. He also gave me the freedom to write about whatever I could think of that was interesting, including news and editorial pieces.

We spoke for an hour before he told me I could start, I was ecstatic about the news; drinks were had in celebration. Then I realised something; if I was going to write for GamerTime, write a dissertation on Stoytelling and Narrative in video games, write a script for a 30 minute film and also write a report for a Research & Development module, all whilst working part time as a bartender in a local pub; I would have to let something go, and I have decided that it would have to be this blog.

Though I won’t abandon this blog, it will still be available for all to read my articles of the past, and who knows; I may return to this blog after University to continue spreading my work all over the internet like some delicious Philadelphia cheese.

So for now, thank you for viewing all of the things I have written; both the good and the bad. If you need me, I will be at GamerTime doing my best rants and babbles there instead.

The Dark Blog Rises

Wow, it’s been more than a year since my last post on this blog. I left it as an abandoned project for a while as I had started University and was looking to start something new, and something new I did indeed start.

I made friends with a bunch of people who, like me, wanted to make short films to distribute on the internet. The result of this was the creation of a film group called ‘A Weird Kind of Rodeo’ a link to our website can be found on the side of the blog and also on the picture in this article.

So basically I’ve spent the better part of a year, making friends, making contacts and best of all, making movies. It’s been great, as I’m about to start second year and don’t need to worry as much about meeting new people, I thought I would take this blog off the shelf and start writing in it again as I really enjoyed it when I did it… that and it seems to be slowly gaining a small following and I can’t leave my blog to be dead when people have started to take an interest.

So yes, I will start writing in this again, I plan to redesign the page a bit to not have the ‘teenage grunge and angst look’ to a more professional look, as that’s what this blog will be. Professional.

Oh, and another thing. The film list I was working on, that project is no more. I got through quite a few films on it but I’m a bit busy to be watching films all the time.
