Hey Folks

My third post for my new blog, Level 1: Game Designer is up. You can read it here:
level1gamedesigner.wordpress.com

The site is in the making, so please excuse any inconsistencies, errors, or omissions. (In fact, if you notice them, I'd appreciate the feedback so I know what to fix.)

My goal is to publish a new post once a week (typically Monday or Tuesday), and the content will typically be about game design (although not always). I haven't published any games, but have been working on one for three years that will hopefully be done by the end of next year.

My posts are meant to encourage other aspiring designers while I share my own experiences and game.

If you want to follow me on Twitter, I'm also on @L1GameDesigner.

Thank you for your time and happy gaming!
David Smith

Thanks for taking the time to write a blog. I know this is not easy, and keeping going is even harder, especially since building a reader base takes time.

You're welcome Josh! It does take time to write the posts, and I don't expect to get a huge following.

Re: Level 1: Game Designer Blog - New Post, Inspiration
Hey Folks

I just posted the fourth topic on my blog, Level 1: Game Designer. The topic is on how game designers can tap into their inspirations for productivity and game ideas.

You can read it here:
https://level1gamedesigner.wordpress.com/2016/08/23/inspirat...

My blog is geared towards aspiring game designers, and I plan to publish one post every Monday (clearly I will be late sometimes). Hopefully by sharing my experiences as an aspiring game designer, I can encourage others.

Happy gaming!
David

Thanks folks! I didn't expect to get half as many readers as I do this early. I decided to do the blog on a whim, just a few days before GenCon. I figured not only would it help me keep my thoughts organized and clear, but I also hope to encourage other newbie game designers.

So are you all aspiring game designers, too? Are you working on a game currently?

I wouldn't go that far to state 'working on one', it's more like playing around a little and who knows maybe one day something nice will come out of all of that
