A (Not So) Random Update Appears!

No, you're not seeing things. This is a new post. I hope you've all been well since last summer. Much like the Wii U getting its first update in three years recently, I have an update to share as well. 

I usually reserve this website for writing during my time off from teaching during the summer. During the school year, I have found it easier to "microblog" using my Twitter account. It doesn't require as much time as a full blog post here usually demands, and I can do it from pretty much any device. I always considered this site to be more of an extension of my ramblings and video game-related stuff from Twitter. 

I'm thinking about changing that. As much as I love using Twitter, it's not what it used to be. While I won't leave Twitter entirely, I have been considering using my websites more-- even if the posts won't always be "long form" or contain the usual photos or formatting. Since many of my thoughts on gaming tend to be threaded anyway, it makes sense to use this website (and my Retro Referee site) to expand those thoughts instead of tweet threads of 5+. I've oddly felt like basic posts on websites would be wastes of time and wouldn't be up to my usual standards... but I'm rethinking that. 

The Retro Referee site will be where the sports video game stuff will go. (I have a Twitter account for that, too.) This site would be for the more general gaming stuff. Collecting, impressions of retro games (and some Switch games), maybe some reviews, and so on. 

It may take awhile to get going, as free time is more of a premium for me these days and I don't even post on Twitter as often as I used to, but that's what I'm thinking. 

For now, I can tell you that:

-- I moved into a new place last fall
-- I'm serving as a long-term substitute technology teacher until June (Hence the little free time.)
-- I have a Wii U now! (I'll be talking about that for sure.)
-- I'm still making videos once a week over on my YouTube channel

In the meantime, you can visit my Twitter feed and see what else is going on.
