So, this plan about reminiscing, what’s that about then?
Well, I wondered recently about why I start blogs, and then end up never posting anything after a while. I like the idea of blogging, but actually sitting down and writing about Eve just doesn’t work for me. When it comes to writing about what’s going on in Eve, I’m clueless, since I’m still a noob after all these years. When it comes to writing up what I’ve done in Eve recently, its quite boring since I don’t really do anything other than talk with people.
However, it struck me that there is one thing I do very well, and that’s sit on my e-rocking chair on my e-back porch and blather on about the ‘good old days’ in New Eden. Nobody has ever complained when I go into my running monologue about the introduction of level 4 agents, or the glory days of mining pre-Castor, so it must hold some interest… Right?
The idea then, is to hone that and do a fairly frequent entry on ‘Eve Retrospective’. I’ll look at what happened in Eve 5, 6 or 7 years ago this month (obviously 7 isn’t an option…. yet, and my chatlogs are limited from 2003 anyway, nuuu). To make it more personal I’ll add in snippets from chatlogs here and there, screenshots I might have, and throw in whatever RP, or political flim-flam was going on at the time. It’ll be a history lesson for you youngin’s who don’t know your m0o from your Space Invaders, or your Yulai from your Jita, or your Jove from a baked potato (common mistake, that last one).
The format is what I’m stumped on though. I can do it one of three ways:
- A monthly roundup – this will likely take a long time to research, and end up a very very large post, and almost certainly lack a lot of info
- A weekly roundup – smaller than the above, more frequent, less likely to miss stuff, but more likely to burn me out
- A ‘whenever’ entry – where I’ll talk about whatever I happened to stumble upon in my time travelling adventures
I personally like the third one, but what do other people think would work best?
