RE: Shameless Self Promotion.
So I started a Podcast. It's the VGCE Show (Video Game Console Examiner). I run down the video game news and notes of the week. Then we hit an opinion piece, talk release schedule, run through a Top Five list, and finish it off with a Real Talk segment and a Did You Know? fact (thanks to the site here for allowing me to plug and use the facts).

I recorded episode two last Monday, and will have episode three this Monday. I'd love to have everyone listen, give feedback, good or bad.

I suggest skipping to episode two, as the first was more of just a test run to see if I could do a podcast.

Here's the link: http://vgce.podomatic.com/

Thanks in advance for listening!

Two questions.

First: Are Wordpress blogs pretty easy to make?

Second: I was thinking about getting one in order to do toy reviews. Would anyone be interested in seeing them if I did?

Yeah I'd say they are easy to make. Give it a shot, the worst that can happen is you waste an hour or two.

Yes, I'd read them.

I make shirts. They're not the greatest, but they tend to geek culture so I imagine people here might like them. Here's my RedBubble page which has all of my work on... http://www.redbubble.com/people/tjhiphop

(not sure if this is the place for this or not, but someone will correct me, I'm sure)

I've been working on a small novel for a little while now. The story is decent, in my opinion, so even if I manage to get it published, I don't expect any sort of real profit from it. Anyway, expect to see it sometime in either 1-5 years from now. I tend to redo entire chapters just because I didn't like a few lines of dialogue, so this is a slow process.

If you can somehow find a way to magically upload my chapters from my laptop to the internet, then you can read it. But as of now, my laptop is the only place where anyone can read it.

Not really sure how tempting it could possibly be, but whatever.
Bear in mind, this is still a work-in-progress, but please, critique it all you like. All comments are welcome. Even comments saying I suck at writing, which I do. The only reason I'm even writing the book is to finally prove to myself I can fully complete at least one life goal.

"...And I ran, desperately trying to distance myself from those creatures. Those things. But, no matter how fast I ran, I could still hear their screams right behind me, still feel their breath rolling down my spine.
My common sense fogged by my fear, I darted into an alley, thinking I could lose them. Surveying the area as quickly as I could, I saw a dark blue dumpster, its side ruined by rust.
Hearing those creatures coming closer, I jumped in. Not the best idea I've ever had, but certainly up on the top ten list. The smell was absolutely horrendous, like an old refrigerator that was full of 2 week old food had been left out in the hot summer sun. The smell was so bad, my eyes were stinging with tears, and my throat was seizing up, trying to prevent me from breathing in the noxious fumes.
Just when I thought I would choke on this toxic gas, the dumpster opened once more, and I was puled out by my shirt collar..."

So, yea...not the best thing anyone's ever read, and hopefully not the worst. Again, any comment is welcome.

That's actually decent writing both on the content and grammar/punctuation/etc. Cool
