So easy a Werit could do it

What am I talking about?  Blogging of course!  This month marks the return of the Newbie Blogger Initiative, spearheaded by Syp.  the NBI is all about getting new blood into the blogging arena, especially when it comes to gaming.

To me, game blogging is the modern day equivalent of talking about games with your friends in the schoolyard. We all used to do that, right?  As an adult, those opportunities are few and far between these days.  Blogging serves as a great outlet for that sort of thing.

Another important part of blogging to me is just getting involved in what I enjoy.  Warhammer Online is what got me to start up this blog, and as a result increased my enjoyment of the game.  Getting involved with the community, making tools like the Arsenal and even meeting the folks at Mythic have been a great time.

If you have ever wanted to do more than just play your games, blogging is a good low-overhead way to start getting involved.  It doesn't have to be about any game in particular of course, it should be whatever you want it to be.  You don't need to be an expert writer either, just look at me :)

A whole bunch of bloggers ( 70+ !) are willing to help you get started.  Just head on over to http://nbihq.freeforums.org  and check out the forums.
