Whew, that was a long title wasn’t it? So, first of all, I should probably tell you guys the BIG NEWS (you know it’s important because it’s in all caps). Yours truly has just landed a job in Publisher Relations at Climax Studios, the UK developers behind games like Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Rocket Knight. I’m of course super-excited to start work in January and am looking forward to the challenges the position will present. There may be a few necessary changes to this blog, but I’ll discuss those at a later date when I’ve settled into the position. I’m looking forward to this new chapter of my life, but not to worry, I have no plans to shut down CTVG just yet, even if it might undergo some transformations I’ll make sure to keep giving you your doctor recommended dose of CheeeseToastie! My YT channel should remain unchanged, although I may start uploading a little less frequently. Again, we’ll sort all that out when we get to it. Also, part of the job will be traveling to gaming events around the world, so maybe I’ll get to meet some of you guys while I’m there!
But wait, this post isn’t over yet! CTVG has once again been awarded some blogger-nominated awards – namely the Blog of the Year award by Derek Childs of http://totalovrdose.wordpress.com/ and the Sunshine Blogger Award by InvaderC8 of http://invaderc8.wordpress.com/ Thank you so much to both of you for nominating me! It’s an amazing feeling to know that people enjoy your blog. I write blog posts and make videos as much to connect and share with you guys as much as it’s an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. So I really appreciate the pat on the back these awards represent. Also, please go check out Derek and InvaderC8’s blogs. Derek’s is about poetry and writing and InvaderC8’s is on gaming and both are great!
Because I have received the Sunshine Blogger Award a few times, I figured you guys are probably bored with hearing random bits about my life, so I’m just going to go with the Blog of the Year Award rules. So, the rules are:
1. Nominate the blogs you think deserve the award (check out the list below)
2. Write a post about your blog nominations and present them with the award
3. Inform the blogs about your nomination and the rules involved in accepting the award
4. Go say ‘hello’ to the originator of the Blog of the Year award at this link:
5. You can also join the Blog of the Year Facebook Page and share your posts if so inclined:
6. Link back to the blog that nominated you, display the award for the world to see and start gathering stars! Apparently each time you are nominated for the award you gain a star. There are six in total for you to collect. What happens next I have no idea. Someone turns up at your door with a red and a blue pill maybe? Wishful thinking perhaps…
Now, onto the nominations! There are tons of amazing blogs that I follow, so it was really difficult to choose, but in the end I just went with the ones that I’ve found myself coming back to again and again and have kept me particularly entertained in one way or another. Most of them are about gaming, because… well, honestly, that’s what I read about you know?
