First, probably the three most gamed "periods" in historical gaming are Napoleonics, WWII and "Ancients". and for whatever reasons, I've never been drawn to the first two (I am to far too many periods as it is) and I've had my fill of "Ancients" having gamed them almost exclusively for about 15 years.
So I tend to ignore almost all blog posts on those subjects . . . although I do admit to enjoying the pretty pictures of "Ancient" battles and troops.
Next, as an older gamer with poor eyes I find that a number of blogs are just too difficult to read with any comfort. These problems fall into a few categories:
- Difficult Visually -- white text on black background and using the different shades of the same color for both background and text.
- Huge Paragraphs -- some posters seem to think that huge paragraphs with no breaks between them are easy to read . . . they are not.
- Formatting Problems -- I particularly HATE those posts where you have to scroll across the page to read each and every line of text.
Finally, I should mention that I enjoy the non-gaming aspects of many blogs . . . I like learning about the gamers' real lives as well as their painting, plans and table top games . . . we are all people with "real lives" as well as our gaming interests . . . and learning more about each other is not a bad thing at all.
Anyway, presuming that the world doesn't end today (ala Mayans), I hope that you all enjoy a wonderful Christmas.
