Nadia doesn't write for PSMonger anymore. She does write for 61fps, though, which is a damn fine blog with several Tyrants contributing.

I would also add a section for the 1up blogs -- Retronauts, The Tilt, The Grind, et al., as the content there is of interest to anyone who frequents this site.

Thank you for taking this over. I always felt bad when new people posted to the other thread my alter-ego started, because when that account was immolated I was no longer able to maintain it.

Also, someone should do this, but with Twitter. (Please don't derail this fine thread, Twitter haters).

I know it's a bit much to ask, but can you edit the Rycar link to be for both of us? The site's currently down right now -- we had a database snafu -- but it's both of ours.

Once I get the design done for my personal blog, it'll be at myportmanteau.com.

Bandwagon. (http://lakupo.livejournal.com/) (although I've had it since 2001, so it's pre-band wagon! I guess. How did I get it? Did I jump on the bandwagon then...?) I've slowly started reviving it after months/years of neglect. one of my new year's resolutions is to finish the Yoshi's Island mood theme I started years ago. I might eventually start something at my own site too, but for now that's it.

Hey! Here's a thing I'm doing for 1up that is a blog!

Netflix360 (http://www.1up.com/1upblogs/8/netflix_360). Some of you may remember my GameSpite column Add to Queue, which started as a message board post on this very board. Well, now it's on 1up and covers streaming video. Not so much of a stretch - I started out covering DVD, then DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray, and then finally just Blu-ray. A2Q has always evolved with the technology. Still love BD, but that is not the point of the blog.

Still in beta, but Kelly annoyed me into finally starting that Justice League: Revisted (http://jlurevisited.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/the-quick-and-dirty-introduction/) project I've been kicking about for a while.

First too-lengthy review is up, but now that I'm done rambling about the background for the series and the character introductions I'll hopefully have it cut down to more of the length of a typical AV Club entry, which is obviously the style I'm ripping off here.

(And before anyone suggests it - no, I'm not linking to the episodes on YouTube if I can help it.)

I have literally wondered this for years, going back to the days when I *sigh* read RPGamer. It was a long time ago! I ended up settling on Google-sheng, but I have no doubt that this is wrong and I will be spending ages mentally correcting myself if we are bedazzled with the proper pronunciation.

It's "Google" followed by that sound Hiryu's Cipher makes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJkCfNAIiOg).

You're closest without going over. The original archaic version was "Googleshnag" which is almost as hard to try and say, coming from one of those made-up-languages extremely nerdy kids make with each other when they're like 5 (it had some kinda wacky reverse polish notation grammatical structuring too). Upon getting internet access, I decided to use it as my name for everything, assuming (incorrectly it turned out) that my actual name was too common to ever use without doing that lame string of numbers deal. My first ISP had some 9 character limit though, so I dropped the A, resulting in a horrible consonant mess not worth trying to pronounce.

So any time it needed speaking, I've always encouraged people to just say "Google." It's a simple, two syllable word devoid of any other meaning that's really easy to remember, and aside from possible confusion with "googol" fails to refer to anything other than me. You know, up until a search engine came along and decided to appropriate it, going on to become this massively popular internet megacorp, creating a bunch of services that block all usernames with "Google" anywhere in them, confusing newcomers that the whole "Ask Google" thing was some sort of synonym for "Look it up yourself" and not a Q&A column I ran, and just generally forcing me to drop my "only one user name" deal and use my actual name for stuff like my current e-mail account. The real annoying thing is that there really was a time when I was considering registering www.google.com for my not-a-blog, but back then registering urls for personal sites was kinda considered pretentious and I waited too long.

Short answer though? It's Google- like, well, Google, -sh- as in shoe, and then you're kinda on your own for the -ng.

Also, hey now. There was no shame in reading RPGamer back in the days when like 90% of its content was being written by me, Doug Hill, and that one behind the scenes admin-type guy whose name escapes me at the moment. Shame came only later, as it transformed into a strange bog of apathy, decay, and power-tripping 19-year old grocery baggers hating the readership away.

For the time being, try cross promoting your blog on fb/twitter everytime you update.

06-19-2011, 02:58 PM
Key things to get people to actually read, based on my observations and what I've read from people with success: Regular update schedule (ideally daily). Get other bloggers with audiences to link to you (usually accomplished by sending them a link to a recent blog post of yours with information that's topical for their blog). Tweet your blog posts with appropriate hashtags, and @ appropriate people.

Hey everyone,

So I just launched a new blog called Canon Salute (http://www.canonsalute.com/). I was inspired by Ken Jennings' new book Maphead to craft a blog that combines the ideas of lengthy journeys, both physical and fictional, with a bit of geographic wonkery and the exploration of physical places. There will also be some good old-fashioned media commentary, largely tied in to the wider theme of the site when I can make it happen.

There isn't much on there yet besides some travel writing I did discussing some locations I went to in New York and New Jersey up close, but I have some more pop-culturey content in the hopper for the coming weeks. I'm still finding my footing style-wise, but I haven't written in forever, and I'm hoping this is the impetus I need.

Oh heck, here's my "blog" (http://sciencemess.tumblr.com) even though I haven't updated it in a little while. Maybe if I get more followers and reblogs I might remember to, or not, WHO CARES EVEN

I write about video games, comics, and anime for this little site (http://thestereogram.com/). We update relatively infrequently, but we're working on episodic anime reviews that should lead to more consistent content, and I'm working on a series of articles on each entry in the main Shin Megami Tensei franchise.

I also have a tumblr (http://fatallabyrinth.tumblr.com) but it serves an entirely different purpose.

Eh, why not? I blog occasionally. Here (http://www.torrentialequilibrium.net). Mostly it's any stupid thing I see fit to share with the internet but sometimes I try to be clever. It's been there for over ten years too, so there's a lot of embarrassingly stupid stuff that teenager me wrote, and also it's missing bits and pieces because I've jumped webhosts sev'ral timez over the years and have done a really bad job of keeping everything up-to-date.
