Welcome to my blog. I’ll be ranting mostly about games and MMOs here. I play Eve Online as an Amarrian bastard called Nuyan Zahedi and because of that a lot on this blog will be EVE related. I also have a blog for non gaming stuff that is located here, go ahead and read it if you want.
A bit about my past in MMOs can be found here.
Why blog? I don’t really know really, I don’t know why I write what I write. Sometimes the need is just there. It’s not just about ego fulfillment by people reading it, although people reading and commenting on your blog can surely motivate me to write more. But even without anyone ever visiting this place I’d probably write here every now and then. It’s good to have a place where you can express yourself on any subject you like, to share your ideas or that article/video which ‘moved’ you at that moment.
Since I have been exposed to the internet years ago I always visited internet-fora and posted on them, it’s a good platform as with typing you’ve time to think about your argument before you make it and add some structure to it, discussions are often of a higher level than in speech because of that. With writing you confront yourself with your own thoughts. Ideas in your head sometimes suddenly appear to be silly when you read them. It’s good to be confronted with that. Having your ideas being confronted is always good.
I can write up ideas that I struggle with if I’d talk about them and not just because talking can be so damn hard, but also because of audience, on the internet everyone can find his niche and groups of people that are interested in the same things. And that’s nice. It’s one of those many reasons why I think the internet is one of the best things to happen to mankind. But yes, blogging, it’s a nice outlet.
Anyway, have fun reading this stuff, thank you for it. Feel free to comment on stuff, I’ll read it, don’t be shy. If anyone wants to contact me, you can mail to nuyanz[at]gmail.com
