Lucky number 7!
I am often amazed that I have been blogging for as long as I have. I have even turned it up a notch over the last year and a half since Windows Spaces migrated to WordPress, the present home of my blog SUPERGHOST’s Haunted House of Xbox. April 9th (yesterday) represented the 7th anniversary of my first post. When I started my blog in 2005 we were just on the very cusp of an Xbox 360 announcement, so much of those early posts were Xbox-centric as well as discussing the rumours and announcements for the upcoming new Microsoft console. Those were exciting and heady days indeed!
As I mentioned perhaps on previous anniversaries, my blog was born from my Bungie.net group where I posted some Halo articles for myself and a small group of friends. It wasn’t long before Microsoft Spaces became all the rage amongst gamers in my circles. Of all the blogging buddies I had at the time I believe I am the sole survivor, and with 1,116 posts to date under my belt it is no wonder they dropped off….they had lives!
Actually, I do it because I still enjoy it, and while readership is still hit and miss I will have this journal of my gaming journey for my kids to share when they are older. An odd legacy, but a legacy none the less. Happy Anniversary to this Haunted House! Now into year 8…my favourite number! It will be Grea8t!
