Running a website is lots of fun.

If you’ve been following for a while, then you’ll know that this website began as a summer project. Since then it has blossomed into something I am really fond of. I now manage a small team of four, run the day to day operations of the site, and currently create all the design elements including the logo and featured images that accompany most articles.

I’ve been doing a lot with the site except for write. I’ve played a lot of interesting video games and have had many compelling discussions that are worthy of writing about but when it comes down to it, I’ve found it difficult to get it out there.

I have an amazing team who is now more committed than ever to publishing content to the website and I want my articles posted alongside theirs so our readers can see all the wonderful and different perspectives our collective minds can offer.

Today was the first day of my senior year of college. In addition to being a full time student, I have a very demanding job. I’ll be very busy this year for sure but I decided this website is something I’m going to make a priority above most things in my life. For instance, next week I’m skipping class to go to GameStop Expo. I’m excited for this opportunity because it will be the first event I am attending as press.

Things like that make this website seem so real and so worth it. I’m not getting paid for any of it, but I treat it like a business of sorts. Maybe one day TSG will bring in some money. My hope is that it can sustain all the games I buy in order to write about. I don’t want to make money, but I would love to break even. I find myself buying games I normally wouldn’t buy just so I can have something to write about. I spent over a hundred dollars on games today.

I have a lot of responsibility, but I can’t forget why I started this website. I have so many thoughts about video games and game culture that I wanted a platform to share those thoughts. I’ve built one hell of a platform. It would be a shame if I stopped writing in lieu of running the website itself.
