So, I've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few weeks, and I've come to a major decision. After I post the second half of Cpt. Dare's entry in my blog, I'm going to stop doing such in-depth character analyses. It's just too much work right now with my class load. And, quite frankly, it feels like too much work; it's not fun anymore. Plus, I feel like most of the time, I'm talking over people's heads. I wanted to make Game Theory accessable to people outside academic circles, to spark discussion on the topic of women in videogames within the gaming community at large, but I don't think I've accomplished that at all.
I think I just need a break from this topic for awhile. I had forgotten how much of a massive undertaking it was to have to construct a new theoretical perspective. And I think I need to find a new way to approach it in my blogs. I've been reading over them, and they just sound entirely too sterile. I was aiming for a kind of sarcastic, cynical humor, but I feel they just sound haughty, pretentious and quasi-elitist.
I'm still going to blog; no need to worry about that. I'm just going to try several different things instead. I'm thinking about getting into the review market, and just commenting on different things going on in the industry.
To cut the self-depreicating blog short, I've come to the conclusion that academic accessability is not the key to blogging success. I'm going to try something else.
