I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. It took me a long time to figure out why and I think the answer is I prefer to just press on with a plan, doing more-or-less the right things day after day. I’d form a habit and keep it up than write lists on Post-It notes. If I sometimes welched and took it easy then so be it – humans are not robots and sometimes we need time off to restore balance and enthusiasm.
That said, the New Year is a good time to take stock of your life and flip the hard reset button so you can initiate new plans. Most of you have probably already bought your gym memberships, jogging shoes, and copy of Daygame Overkill. Good luck!
One recommendation I do have for aspiring daygamers is to start a Player’s Journey blog. They are free to do on WordPress and really simple. Just open the brower-based wordpad and type away. Have a look on Google Images for a photo of a hot bird to stick at the top of each post. Done. Sorted.
If you’re not interested in writing, then don’t bother at all. This post will give a little advice to those of you with an itch to write. If you’re not feeling that itch, don’t force yourself into doing something you have no love for. Save that limited pool of self-discipline for your actual real-life cold approaching. But, assuming you’re gonna write…………… let’s start with simple set-up.
1. Use WordPress
Spoogle’s Blogger platform is ugly and unwieldy. WordPress is extremely user friendly and all the default free themes and hosting work just fine in the beginning. You can get your own domain name and hosting later if you decide to keep on blogging. Don’t pay anyone a penny in the first few months until you’ve found your feet. This is a hobby not a business.
2. Be anonymous
Choose a PUA name and set up completely separate Gmail and WordPress accounts. It may surprise you that my comments queue often shows the real email account the reader logged in under, and if I copy-paste that into Facebook or Linked In then I know exactly who they are, where they live, and who their employer is. I don’t care but there’s always a snidey hater out there somewhere who can use that to make trouble for you*. So put up a firewall.
3. Lock it
For the first month or so it’s probably best to keep the blog private while you find your feet. You may decide to keep it permanently private – like Tom did – or open it up later – like I did.
4. Have fun
Go onto fiverr.com and hire a logo designer to give you a $5 brand logo and another to give you a $5 banner for the top of the blog**. It’s dumb but its easy and good for lulz. If you’re stuck for ideas just take photos with your camera phone when you’re in a supermarket, record store or games store. Send that logo to the designer and say “like this but [colours] and [text]”
Okay then, so you’re sitting on a new blog and the page is blank, waiting for My First Post. What the hell are you going to write about?
Mike Cernovich has an excellent post on how to create a compelling blog. Put simply, his formula is: (i) talk about a problem you had (ii) talk about how you overcame it (iii) tell the reader what you’ve learned that can help them do the same.
The Player’s Journey naturally fits this pattern because the problem is getting laid, the solution is game, and the advice is your specific routines or mindsets. But let’s break it down further:
Every idea, experience or opinion you ever have can be:
- broken down fractally into additional ideas, experiences and opinions
- expanded horizontally to wash over other topics to which the same principles apply, i.e. mindwank
- expanded vertically into further minute detail, i.e. a deep dive
- described both literally & evidentially, and also figuratively & symbolically.
What this means to the daygame blogger is he has an unlimited number of things to write about. Unlike the normal non-fiction blogger we also have another never-ending content generator: your experience on the streets.
Every time you step onto the streets you create content a story: If you cold approach then each set is the story. If you weasel out and spend the afternoon eating Haribo while crying in a back alley that’s also
a potential story a full length book. Even if you stay home that day and read a book – that’s still a story if you follow Mike’s formula. For as long as you’re “in the game” you’ll have things to write about.
There is one reason – and only one – why readers will return to your blog and eventually become a loyal following. This reason is AUTHENTICITY.
If you’re planning the blog to monetise it as your location-independent income then give up now. It won’t happen. I’ve been blogging since 2009 (I may have even been the first consistent daygame blogger – I’m not sure), I succeeded on the street, I co-invented the method, I wrote five books, and I’m a pretty good writer too. Despite all these things in my favour, I’ll always be able to make far more $$$ from my real career than from blogging. Daygame is simply too niche to make anyone rich.
What’s your sales proposition? “Nick Krauser without the originality or talent”
Nobody wants to read your 5 Ways To Open In A Supermarket or How To Think Like James Bond. There are better-established and more talented guys out there already trying to push that shit and they don’t make much money either. Pretty much the only way to make money in that style is the Return Of Kings way: Leverage an already really big platform and then troll mentally unstable fringe elements for hate-clicks, positioning yourself as the crusader for justice that all the perma-angry lost boys can look up to.
Daygame will never be big enough for those banner ads to make you money. You have to go after feminists or write angry reviews about the new Star Wars movie. Waste of time. So, give it up. Blogging is not about income. I’ll finish this post with what I consider good reasons to blog.
So, lets get back to authenticity. Given that you’re not trying to impress people with your mad skillz in order to sell coaching, what are you trying to do?
The goal of every player’s journey blog should be to authentically and sincerely reflect your experience of the streets and what you think about it.
Your blog will take the reader through all the postives: the wide-eyed hope of taking control of your dating life, the excitement of taking the first pretty girl’s number, the camaraderie of meeting other players and sinking into the Secret Society, the sense of achievement from pushing against adversity week after week. It will also cover the negatives: the misery of ten consecutive blowouts, the frustration of a last-gasp failure in the bedroom, the self-doubt and isolation as you drop out of the matrix.
Your blog will be compelling because you are re-creating the emotional rollercoaster that you live day after day. Some readers will be pulled in as voyeurs peeking at a life less ordinary. Other readers will be fellow travellers who want to compare their experiences to yours. This only works if you’re AUTHENTIC and SINCERE.
Drop those “5 things you didn’t know about….” posts. Tell your real experiences. Follow Mike’s formula.
THE CLASSIC STYLE
There is a writing style developed in France by Descartes*** called “the classic style”. It’s essentially an invisible style because every good writer uses it. It’s like Call of Duty’s “aim down sights” mechanic – it’s simply the way things are done and it doesn’t cross your mind it had to be invented and was once a brand new mechanic associated with one particular franchise.
Steve Sailer explains the style better than me here including this money quote from Pinker:
The guiding metaphor of classic style is seeing the world. The writer can see something that the reader has not yet noticed, and he orients the reader so she can see for herself. The purpose of writing is presentation, and its motive is disinterested truth. It succeeds when it aligns language with truth, the proof of success being clarity and simplicity. The truth can be known and is not the same as the language that reveals it; prose is a window onto the world. The writer knows the truth before putting it into words; he is not using the occasion of writing to sort out what he thinks. The writer and the reader are equals: The reader can recognize the truth when she sees it, as long as she is given an unobstructed view. And the process of directing the reader’s gaze takes the form of a conversation.
The key take-away is stop second-guessing yourself and stop going all “meta” in your writing. Speak plainly and directly, like you are telling a story to your friends in the pub (for field reports) or explaining your opinion in a discussion (for theory pieces). Assume you’re the expert and the reader is an intelligent layman, then make an AUTHENTIC and SINCERE attempt to convey the information.
If you start posturing, you’re done. In the beginning you can’t help but posture and grandstand but we’ll get to that another time. It’s okay, it comes with the territory when you write about Game because you’ll often slip into “aspirational writing” as you use your blog to try to game yourself into higher peformance. But try to restrain your ego.
“But Nick, I’m a noob not an expert. I barely understand daygame. Why would anyone listen to me?”
You are the expert of your own experience. Nobody in the world can relate the truth of your experience better than you can. I remember a time when I was seven years old and I fell out of a tree on the hill next to my junior school. There were many expert tree-climbing boys in my school who could’ve better advised you on the correct way to climb that tree. However none of them could better relate my particular story of falling out of this particular tree. I could tell a great story about how I felt on ascent and then again on my rather speedier descent.
I’d rather read an authentic and sincere field report about blowouts than a posturing grandstanding puff piece about a same day lay. Most readers would.
From the beginning of this post I assumed you have an interest in writing. That’s ultimately what will push you one way or the other. If you do begin a Players Journey blog, you’ll quite likely notice that within six months most of the following benefits accrue to you:
- Accountability: You never truly understand something until you try to explain it in writing (Daygame Mastery taught me that above eveything else). By practicising the discipline of coming home after a session (daygame, reading, gym, whatever) and then organising your thoughts into a blogpost, you will be training yourself to take responsibilty. That’s a universally attractive masculine trait.
- Purpose: It’s sometimes easy to lose your way along the journey, finding yourself spinning your wheels. The blog gives you forward direction as a mini-project. You get to potter on your virtual allotment to keep your mind turning, and you’ll often force yourself onto the street just so you have something to write about. The blog becomes your wing, egging you on.
- Storytelling: A key skill in cold approach pick up is to spontaneously generate observations, mythologies and stories from the very beginning all the way through the date and relationship. Your blog is practice for that.
- Self Awareness: The blog encourages you to introspect about your motivations, techniques and results so that you can better identify problems and trends. It encourages that observing ego that stands outside of you, looking in. That helps maintain a forward direction when everything else around you is a whirlwind.
- Comaraderie: In the beginning no-one reads you but the blog helps you take on the identity of “player” or “daygamer” which helps overcome the awkwardness you feel with the old chode identity you’re trying to shed. Later you’ll draw comments and these guys will help you feel part of something larger than yourself.
- Contacts: Your blog will function like an online resume for potential wings. Even guys like Bodi – whose blog is mostly a repository of misery and disappointment – can leverage it to arrange meet-ups with guys on the other side of the world who read him. If you write with authenticity and sincerity, people will want to hang out with you. No longer will you suffer the horror of an LSS forum meet-up.
- Thinking Out Loud: One exercise I recommend noobs do is sit in a cafe and look at the girls walking by. Make an assumption stack and mythology for each girl. Keep drilling until you can immediately generate the first thirty seconds of a set for any girl you see (my Black Book video goes into detail on this drill, including many examples). Your blog will also work this way as you think aloud in your posts as you grapple with ideas and try to work your way through them. Any of my readers who browses back to earlier years will be able to trace how the ideas were formulated.
- Your Memoir: You don’t have to be so vain as to write an actual memoir. However just as teenage girls like to keep diaries charting their progression from ponies to One Direction to Lemmy Kilmister we players chart our own progression. It’s pleasant to look back on where you were and what you used to think, then shake your head thinking “what a silly boy.”
Writing a blog is a labour of love. If any of you do get it going, I wish you luck. A few months from now I’ll do a round-up of player’s journey blogs. So, if you start now and follow this advice you can be sure you’ll at least get announced to the world a few months from now and get some readers.
* If your blog gains a little traction you’ll certainly attract marauding gammas. They roam the internet looking for bloggers they can attach to and then start reframing them, making them feel bad, and pull them into their reality-weave. It’s a little like how every second hand bookstore is a magnet for crazy homeless people. Be ruthless in banning them.

That was needed and unexpectedly helpful post. Right on time. I’ve found that since I’ve started to actually coach guys I’m usually writing posts to explain some dynamics or basics. More often than not the guy I’m writing to is me. Hence I omit personal experiences that I have good knowledge of as I just need to organize and recap the knowledge. Especially the basics that are easily forgotten.
I think I’ve might become too “meta” but it’s the easiest way for me to write. Maybe I should include more personal stuff but as for now I simply enjoy putting thoughts to text (except for finding suitable pualingo for Polish posts).
Ps. Thanks for the mention in podcast #20. As you can see I go by the “tddaygame” nickname, even though I still introduce myself as Thomas.
January 4, 2016 at 6:42 pm
I had a conversation with Nick once and said :I cannot be arsed blogging. Every sentence I type, I think to myself : what’s in it for me? How much will I get paid for this? More importantly, can I actually measure the monetary value of each post?
I’ve read elsewhere on the Manosphere that the more popular writers think they can ; they are wrong. There is not an analytics report (or otherwise) out there that will tell you the actual monetary value of each post, unless you do advertising. which many blogs don’t do. If there was, I would have found it (and don’t tell me about fucking Page Value reports either)
Point is, Nick is right, you have to be a certain kind of person to do it.
From my experience, I found 2 things which still shock me to this day:
The sense of entitlement of the average PUA reader : “Write about this, do that”. Negative comments etc
A complete misunderstanding of how a value exchange works.
My understanding comes from the the comments, there is a silent majority of decent readers who read the posts, appreciate it and (some) buy the products. Good for them.
So listen to old Nickie Boy, he’s absolutely right and don’t ever get into blogging if you want something out of it, you’ll end up resentful and pissed off after about 4 weeks.
January 4, 2016 at 8:33 pm
I don’t like this comment at all. Also Jabba do some infields.
January 5, 2016 at 12:12 am
You crack me up.
January 5, 2016 at 8:28 am
That’s actually bordering on an amusing comment! More like this and you’ll come across as a likeable guy rather than an angry, obnoxious little twerp!
January 6, 2016 at 2:04 pm
The whole point of a blog isn’t to make money, but to essentially build your authority by providing valuable content and building trust with your audience.
You’re providing value and free content that you can otherwise charge for up front in order to build credibility. In the Marketing world. Eben Pagan/David Deangelo coins this as “Moving the Free Line”.
You’re in a sense, building a tribe of people who love and follow your stuff, which nick has successfully built over his years of writing.
Having said that, it is still very possible to make money from a blog once the authority is built as its easier to sell to people due to the trust and the value you’ve delivered. But the mistake most people make is that they focus on the money first and not their audience. If you don’t love what you do or aren’t willing to genuinely care or help other people achieve the same results, then it will not work.
January 4, 2016 at 7:53 pm
Thanks for the advice. I’ve been following the blog for a while now. In either case, I write more of a narrative approach than the typical blogger. I am not sugar coating stuff (hell if anything it’s red pill but without the risk of going to manosphere territory) yet I actually seem to have a fair female following, and get their fan mail from time to time. I imagine they folllow it for the same reason that they like fan fiction and the like.
Either way, been talking with Tom on the subject. Why do you think that there’s a lack of “narrative driven game blogs”? Tom posits that it’s mostly because most guys just want to make a quick buck selling a crappy PDF. I’m inclined to agree but I think there might be more at work, as they’re close to nonexistent from what I’ve found. [Probably because people who like to write are scared to approach, and people who approach have no energy left to write. K.]
January 5, 2016 at 12:19 am
Other people are scared to write and have no energy left to approach.
January 4, 2016 at 9:16 pm
Cheers for the advice K, I’ve had mine going on and off for the past year and a bit. And this will really help me write my posts better.
Didn’t want to post on your Twitter, as it I don’t have a game related account. But mine is rambopua.wordpress.com
While I’m here, I wanted to ask if you could make a go into a bit more depth hard and soft dominance, Specifically soft dominance, I think with all the guys coming into game, it is a given that everyone has more soft than hard dominance. [I’ve just had a read through a bunch of your posts. You’ve definitely got the detail and the sincerity, so the raw material is good. I think the blog is working as a tool to help you structure your journey. If your goal is more readers, I’d suggest livening it up a bit so its more fun to read. Make it look nicer, put some photos in, and broaden the range of topics a bit more – at the moment you’re strongly focused on things directly relevant to you at that point, particularly on the negatives you are trying to fix. Consider drawing your personal conclusions and then thinking what it might mean for the reader. Per Cernovich’s formula you’re doing steps 1 and 2 but ending the post before step 3. K.]
January 4, 2016 at 10:30 pm
Cheers K, I’m not looking for fanbase, but it would be cool meeting some likeminded people. And you need readers for that. But yeah, I definitely agree with livening up the writing and visuals. Cheers again!
January 4, 2016 at 11:57 pm
Thanks for this Nick. This has kicked me up the arse.
I will be posting under claremontpua on WordPress and have my first post up now if anybody is interested. [Good luck. If you’re still writing and – crucially – still approaching in a few months I’ll include you in the round-up. The approaching is key. Without it the blog will just be a grand meta-weasel. K.]
January 5, 2016 at 12:21 am
I don’t blog, but I can’t think of anything else that needs to be said about putting your ass online. Philosophy, practicalities, non-gormless encouragement – they’re all here.
I owe you for the Sailer quote – it should be on billboards.
January 5, 2016 at 12:31 am
Under that philosophy, why read/write books? There’s only seven basic plots anyways…Life is simple, but the key lies in the details.
January 5, 2016 at 1:33 am
All true, Richard – but sometimes you come across a book or an article or a paragraph that makes you think: ‘Anyone who wants to add anything worthwhile to that is going to have his work cut out.’ Regards.
January 5, 2016 at 1:01 am
+ your observation on Return of KIngs gave me a ‘My God,Holmes, you’re right!’ moment.
Am no fan of French social theory and its offshoots myself (have a go on the Postmodernism Generator if you haven’t already), but Baudrillard said a smart thing about Madonna – ‘Her tragedy is that she can never get naked enough.’
‘Why I am Not a Postmodernist’ by an undergrad English major at Brown turned hyperactive and conscientious academic pathologist – http://www.pathguy.com/postmod.htm. It’s from 1997, and therefore a cornucopia of dead links, but still worthwhile. Click on ‘The Shrink from Hell’ to read Raymond Tallis’s demolition of the despicable Lacan. That’s Raymond Tallis the poet, philosopher, novelist, critic, neuroscientist and – almost incidentally – retired consultant in health care of the elderly and textbook author.

Pinker quote. I lose half a mark.
January 5, 2016 at 11:25 am
You’re right, humility is key, that’s why I’ve just written 1000 words on my first same day lay 😉
January 5, 2016 at 11:55 am
” troll mentally unstable fringe elements for hate-clicks, positioning yourself as the crusader for justice that all the perma-angry lost boys can look up to.”
Well drama has always been popular.
Or sometimes it’s good to just gather the thoughts in words and get them out and off your chest, though this should be done in the context of the blog.
It’s easy to be different if you just write your experiences and how you think about them.
And yep, anything to do with PUA, exposing or criticism of women will attract the white night and sjw legions.
So you have to create a whole new persona stay anonymous as long as possible.
Any advertising and monetizing through adsense and affiliates that use the same links as other websites are easily traced btw.
January 5, 2016 at 5:19 pm
Excellent advice, as always.
I started my own player’s blog half a year ago and it has helped me tremendously on my journey. By documenting your progress and goals in a blog, it really does feel like having a wing out there, who motivates you and pushes you to continue.
I’ve been reading your blog for 3 years now and it has literally changed my life for the better. Before stumbling onto your blog (I think through Heartiste), I wouldn’t even have thought it’s possible to stop a girl in broad daylight, get to know her and eventually sleep with her. The more I read about your successes and failures, the more I shifted from being a “voyeur peeking at a life less ordinary” to wanting to go the journey myself and have my own stories. I also really enjoy reading your non-game-related posts (like the “your life is a project”-posts). I’ve learned a lot from your blog, things you would never learn in the “blue pill”-world.
I know how much time and energy you put into your blog (since starting my own small thing), basically giving free value to people without asking for anything in return, and I wanted to give some value back so I got myself Mastery (of course for my own benefit as well). I haven’t really read through it yet, but once I’ve locked in a decent amount of sets, I’ll be looking into it and hopefully find some further insight into Daygame. I hope this didn’t come across like a bad sales pitch for your book, I’m writing this because I sincerely wanted to thank you for maintaining this amazing resource of game knowledge.
Caravan [Thanks for the kind words and support. Good luck on the journey and keep approaching/writing and I’ll include you in the round-up later, though may need a translator K.]
January 6, 2016 at 9:57 am
Thanks for the interesting offer, but I think it’s better to not include me there. My blog serves me well as my own personal notebook/memoir and I want to keep it that way. I’m not a skilled writer, and to make it actually enjoyable to read for the few German guys out there, I would have to dedicate a lot more time to it. Time it’d rather spend on the street honing my Daygame skills. I don’t mind people to read my blog, but I’m happy enough to go through it just for myself and recognize the progress I’ve made. [Sure. The primary beneficiary of your blog should be yourself. K.]
January 5, 2016 at 11:57 pm
I think a player’s journey blog has to have actionable advice. What I’ve always liked about yours is that in a sense I was able to build my own player’s journey around yours. I ended up with many of the successes and blow outs and often salvaged them with your advice. Just writing about game for the sake of it without any clear learnings is just vanity. To be interesting it needs the kinds of screen grabs and videos yours has. [The main purpose of writing one is to help the writer, not the reader. K.]
January 6, 2016 at 12:16 am
Good ” kick up the arse ” post,i had this idea simmering in my head but didn’t fully commit to it. This post has confirmed it and i have finally put up my first post.

Have been writing about my daygame journey in NYC since Aug 2015 after being prompted by the lowest of lows while out daygaming one day. Has been quiet therapeutic for me personally.
My blog is at http://oceanpua.tumblr.com/. If you live in NYC and have been daygaming consistently, lets meet. Email me. [I’ve checked it out. It sounds like you are doing the right things and pondering the right ponderables. Keep it up. K.]

You’ve just made me do another post, and have just reactivated my attention-seeking tendencies. “I want to be in that round-up, you hear me?” was what I heard myself silently saying to myself after reading your post.
Seriously though, thanks for sharing this. Your blog has been a source of inspiration for me for a long time. [You write surprisingly well. Good blog. K.]
January 11, 2016 at 1:57 am
When Eddie from Street Attraction interviewed you in 2015 he asked you where you think the future of pick-up will go. You said you basically think pick-up will further go into niches.
Related to your post here, I recently started blogging about how I’m learning game (i.e. As I define it: The avenue, method, or way in which a man attracts and gets women.),. My blog is definitely a niche different than yours. However, I think in some ways obviously very similar. So I learn a lot from you. I’m a newbie know-little.
So…. Thanks for your post here. It is very helpful. Since reading it I’ve rewritten my original post as a way to hash out what specifically it is I’m aiming for.

I’m loving this: “the Return Of Kings way: Leverage an already really big platform and then troll mentally unstable fringe elements for hate-clicks, positioning yourself as the crusader for justice that all the perma-angry lost boys can look up to.”
An unfortunate strategy that Return of Kings and the RooshV forums follow is being heavily over-moderated, so that it is an echo chamber of he-man-woman-haters club of relationship fail. A cult of anti-intimacy. For a group of guys wanting to up their attractive manliness qualities it’s a catch 22, because speaking up as a man with any sort of opinions that ruffle feathers will lead to censorship; being a real man won’t be tolerated. With such heavy moderation it can’t be a self correcting user generated content community, but instead becomes the blind leading the blind astray. The communities are not only given content and moderated into selecting for perma-angry lost boys, but self select for people with developmental disorders such as schizoid, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizoid_personality_disorder, which manifests as a preference to pump and dump the bitches and be paranoid about divorce rape. Developmental disorders are encouraged from the top down as lifestyle choices, while healthy mature views are moderated out. There is some fundamental unhappiness that is self-perpetuating and growing and sickening other people, and that resists anti fungal medication.
As to writing a blog, I’ve always enjoyed the process as a focus to organize thoughts. My mind will take the weeks events and chew them into a theme and out of my fingers will flow organized insights. Throughout the day my internal narrative will be organizing things to fit into words that can be used to express things clearly to others, and so things become clear to myself. It serves as a focus.
And as benefits, it never once occurred to me that blogging would lead to meeting cool people in real life, and it especially never occurred to me that it would lead to guys coming to work and live with me. So it seems there can be unforseen benefits.
I’ve never tried to make money from blogging, and agree that it would not be a wise reason to blog. Perhaps I’m a bit of a purist that way; I respect the process itself. Men love for the sake of it, women love opportunistically. Writers blog because it’s what they love to do, in fact are compelled to do. We write our life, and our life comes out of us as writing. That seems in a different category than blogging because of and for money. I can imagine how selling ebooks can serve as even greater focus than lobbing out casual blog posts, but for a blog to have longevity the writer is best off wanting to give it all away and enjoy the process of doing so. If it feels like work that you want to get paid for, the motivation is askew. Writing and being read can contain it’s own reward. [I have mixed feelings about RoK. They often put up good posts with useful information for men – e.g. the recent one on identifying drugs women take – and it’s also great that Roosh is stridently right-wing and doesn’t tolerate female infiltration. So it’s the kind of alternate institution that we need, much like Breitbart. So I’m fully supportive of their project, and also the editor is the guy who edited Daygame Mastery and he’s moved the site away from the puerile frat boy stuff and towards more serious weighty topics. That said, I still find the whole perma-angry vibe off-putting so I only read a few of the contributors. K.]

I been writing now for month a Budapest based blog, which focuses heavily on the process of learning daygame (low-intermediate). First and foremost it’s accountability tool for myself but I’m happy if anyone else gets any benefit out of it.
I noticed that my improvement with daygame had stagnated while I has happily dabbling with Tinder so I moved from Scandinavia to Budapest to take action and improve the skill. Thanks Nick, this post has been helpful on starting the blog with a right mindset and I will keep re-reading it to stay on track.

I know I’m a little bit late to the party, but inspired by Nick’s post I decided to revive my old site as a player’s journey blog:
Didn’t want to post on here, until I had at least a few posts up. Naturally, it’s a lot of navel-gazing, but hey, I’m an expert at that, if not at daygame 😉 It will be interesting to see how the other blogs on here will continue to develop; I especially like Ocean’s articles so far.
