This is a series of bi-monthly articles to show off the best blogs that I've seen over the course of a fortnight. And believe me, I've checked them all.

I want to apologise for dropping the ball at the start of the month for this series. I just somehow never managed to pick it back up, so I decided to do a double feature instead.

The blogs spotlighted here will have interesting content that focuses on the game/s in question, will usually be longer than not and sometimes contain either graphical or video content as well as written.

The irony of being featured on this list by announcing the cancellation of a project...

I need to write more blogs on better subjects.

Yikes, my blogging game has gotten pretty weak. Curse you, real life!

It's good to see some new faces on the list, though!

Good round this time around.

Sorry, for using this for disscussion, but i would like to know whats the thing with Paper Maker switching from Ruby.
Anyone knows?
Glad to see Soma Spirits make the cut :3
@Liberty: I have a suggestion.

Maybe you could select less blogs for the spotlight and write a short paragraph as to why you selected said blog? I think it would help people who want to improve which I think is part of the whole initiative. I would personally prefer to know what you liked about the blog more than anything else. I think it would also encourage me to read the blogs if there was a short description like that as opposed to a list. Right now I don't read any because it's just a long list. Even a single sentence would be cool.

Also, check your PM please! :)

I've checked my PMs, nothing there from you. Maybe resend?

That said, I'm not gonna write what I liked about the blogs, geez. Do you have any idea how long it took me to go through about 140 blog posts? I'm not getting paid to do this, nor is it my 'job' to do so. It's something I picked up to do because I thought it was a neat idea. Besides, the article isn't about what I thought were the best blogs, but about them. They're the feature, not what I think about them. I just pick which ones stand out as being the most interesting/cool/informative/etc.

That said, basically I just open all the blogs, get rid of the ones that are only one or two sentences long or have no writing added, then go through the rest for basic spelling/grammar/punctuation (I can be flexible if the subject of the blog is interesting enough) and look what the blog is about. If it pertains to the project and has an interesting subject it'll go on the short list. After that I'll look through them again and get rid of the ones that don't quite meet the standards of the other blogs on the list. Usually by this point there's only a handful left, so I weed out an extra one or two. Then, viola, done.

Easy ways to get on the list: add images to make the blog more interesting to look at, use proper spelling/grammar/punctuation/etc, talk about a few things in your game or go into detail about one thing. Make it interesting.

As for amount, again, double-feature. At the start I explained that I let the start of the month drop by accident and thus had two choices - only do the end half of the month or do both parts in an extra-big episode. I chose the latter for fairness.


Peace, just a suggestion.

Ok, I'll resend then.
