Blog Reader Sound Off

2007 May 3

So I was just telling Shreyas that I have no clue who reads this blog. Sometimes it feels like no one does, though I know that’s not true. But this isn’t a blog on which people consistently post comments (not like Vincent’s), so it’s hard for me to keep track of readership. I go about my day and then, just yesterday, I noticed someone had name-dropped the design work I’ve been doing here on Story Games. Crazy. Because I didn’t know anyone was paying attention.

I’d like your help in getting to know you. If you have a few seconds, post a response or email me (jaywalt at gmail; subject: “Sound Off”), letting me know:

1) Who you are. Mini bio. What games you play. That kind of thing.
2) What brought you here. Some other blog. My Avatar game. Story Games.
3) What you get out of this. Are you patiently waiting until I get back to the Exalted hack? Are you stealing fun design tidbits? Are you stalking me?

If you’re someone I’ve met in person or bummed around with online for years, you can probably skip #2 and 3, but it’d still be nice to know you’re out there. However, if you don’t read my posts regularly, don’t feel guilty and stop by just to sign my yearbook. I’m trying to get a better sense of who my audience is here and, if you’re not really part of it, that’s important to know too. Cool?

This is the one to use if people are going to do any playtesting. Also, I spent an hour or so yesterday talking with Annie Rush (now an Avatar expert since her hubby Reagan is going to be drawing comics for Nick magazine) about many of the unspoken assumptions in the rules draft I posted earlier. Thanks to her help, I should have a clearer, more accessible version posted sometime this weekend. Yay!

Shreyas is amazing. As if you didn’t know.
