@RebelMac ^ ^ I can't even manage to write 1 blog every year :P Guess I'm gonna write my next blog sometime during 2019 xD
When I look back at 2011 and think about my achievements in the past year, the ones on my PSN account are the only ones that pop up. I wouldn't call 2011 a year wasted, but I think its safe to declare it as the most unproductive year of my life. There was so much more I could have done, but I spent all my time gaming. So, when 2012 came, I put up some objectives for myself, my new year's resolutions.
The first one was to get myself a job. If I wouldn't have found a job soon, I'd be flat broke by the end of this month, with no money to purchase the new titles that I've been so eagerly waiting for. So I started following up on any and all job opportunities I found, and find a job I did!
I just got hired by Segment Next as a content writer. Not something big, but hey, its something, and its all about games. Well, I'm currently charged with writing guides for League of Legends. I'll admit , writing guides for a living is quite demanding, more so than I thought it was, probably because my boss wants me to write 60 guides a month
They just published my first guide on their site a few a hours ago. You can read it ---> here. The guide is intended for beginners, for those who intend to start playing the game soon or have recently started and require a quick overview of the basics. Let me know what you guys think in the comments section and do mention anything you think its lacking so I can update it.
I'll keep you guys informed on any new guides I write if you're interested. Just let me know in the comments area, or follow me on Fuse if you use it.
Got my first job and here I am writing my first blog on GS after being here for almost 7 years. Life's progressing Now where's that trophy notification for 'Getting Employed'
@matastig Have to manage it somehow. I'm not writing 60 guides a month though. I'm way behind, I'm not even doing a guide a day. I do like the job though. Gaming journalism is pretty much the kind of job I dreamt of having sometime back. Gotta wait for the perks to kick in though (review copies, beta keys etc.). I'll definitely write more blogs when I find the time
Your new job is awesome! your Boss is crazy!! 60 guides in a month?? 2 guides a day??and how on earth are you going to find the time to play and experience the game and write about 2 guides a day?? is your boss a real gamer? or just some crazy rich?i don't know what to say man that's a torture! but i can say you did a great job with the guide (i only read the first page) but you're good and you have potential. oh and first blog in 7 years? wow i hope to see more from you so we get to know you better:)
@Nanashi_x Will do And thanks everyone! I play on EU west, so if any of you ever wanna play together just PM me and I'll be sure to add you.
