An Editor's Lament
Running a website is easy. Running 3 websites can be a challenge. Constantly trying to stay on top of the ever morphing video game and movie industries whilst holding a 9-5 job AND working freelance after hours can really take a lot out of a guy. Such has been the last few months, which warrants an apology to our readers and raises a few questions. I’ve tried to resist using Media Geeks as my personal blog, but since my personal blog is currently without a host and MySpace fills me with hatred, I’m gonna use the tools at hand.
So firstly, please accept my sincerest apologies for the lack of articles, reviews and discussions. Since it’s inception, Media Geeks was a way for myself, as well as the other staff members to rant and rave, productively, after hours about the stuff that we liked to do. It was never our intention to try and beat out the big 3 (gamepro,ign and 1up) but rather to offer a different, independent perspective on all the same topics. Unfortunately, we all have other lives too and sometimes time frames have to shift to more lucrative (read: cash-flow) activities. We get no pay even with the various ad systems. Now, see, I’m starting to whine. I don’t want to whine. I want to write. I want to give my opinions. I want to keep playing games and watching movies, which allows me to pose the question. What do YOU want?
As I mentioned, the intention isn’t to dethrone the guys who do this best, but offer something different. So what is it you’d like to see? Drop me a line, let me know if theres something you’d like to see from the site, a function, or interaction that might help to take your eye from the big guys for a few minutes? I want to know. Use that little link up there in my name to send me an email. Or post in our forums, start a thread about how we can improve. Maybe it’s just a visual thing. Maybe it’s just more articles. Who knows? You do.
So let’s hear it. Hit me with your best shot.
