The inaugural month of the EXP Share Post has come and gone. I hope everyone has had fun reading and sharing each other’s stories. I was unsure how this collab would go with others, but it seems to be enjoyable and I am happy to continue doing it!
With topic number one, there were a total of five posts! If you have not given them a read yet, I implore you to do so!
Why I Feel In Love With Video Games by Later Levels – You can have a blogging event without Kim from Later Levels! You can guess what game got her into the hobby, but hearing it form her and the story that goes along with makes it sound like a destiny’s calling.
EXP Share: The Video Game, Moment, or Reason, That Got Me Into Gaming by Thero159 – Nintendo 64 Christmas Kid, meet GameBoy Color Christmas Kid! Thero’s story is very simple, but it captures that moment of wonderment at a young age who is about to embark on a grand adventure.
EXP Share #1 – The Beginning of it All… by Gaming Omnivore – Oh to be a kid in the late 80s/early 90s. Some of legends in the gaming world start to emerge around this time, but can you guess which game started our omnivorous friend’s hunger for gaming?
EXP Share: Gaming Escapism Begins by Ace Asunder – Solarayo’s story sounds like the origin story for a badass superhero. From the ashes of a childhood event, a new person was born! One that would have an affinity toward lightning, the color purple, and punching things!
How It Started (EXP Share Post) by Tales from the Backlog – It feels weird putting my own post in this post, but the concept of this event is to share post even if that means sharing my own again with old and new readers. I don’t know if I will do it again, but here it is in case you didn’t get around to reading it the first time. I will always put everyone’s else’s post above mine because I want to share them with everyone else since I’m grateful they took the time to take part in this community event that I thought of one random day while I was probably at work.
With November behind us now. We must look toward the future and dream of better times. Quite literally since we are at the end of 2020, and I bet we are all ready for the sequel in 2021! For the December EXP Share Post, I wanted to come up with a topic that fits the holiday season without being directly Christmas related. I know we all celebrate different holidays and special occasions, so I’ll try to not make any topics relate directly to a specific holiday. With that in mind, there is one concept that is synonymous with all holidays happening this month. So for this month, I propose this topic:
Share A Story Where You Shared The Gift Of Gaming With Someone OR Someone Shared It With You.
It sounds a little confusing so let me explain.
Share a story were you may of introduce someone to gaming. It could be a game that you wanted someone to try and they loved/hated it, introducing someone to a series that they never heard of, buying a game or console for someone, sharing a special moment with someone, or letting someone play a level in a game and sharing the fun/misery of it all. If you can’t think of a moment that you did personally, was it something someone did for you that was a gift? All are still welcome to join in on these types of post. As always, no pressure if you don’t have a story you want to share. I will eventually come up with the one topic that you can’t help but to share a story!
Like last time, the deadline for your post will be at the end of the month, December 31. Spread the holiday cheer of whichever holiday you celebrate by sharing the gift of storytelling with everyone!
Thanks for reading,
