Not being mean. Just want to know why do you do this blog? What made you start? What keeps you going?
Question directed at entire Daily SPUF “staff” and regulars.
Medic: I have no idea! No, seriously, I don’t. Aabicus just asked me if I wanted to write stuff, I said yes and it all went up/downhill from there. Now I’m technically in charge of this, although neither of us seem to know who’s the editor and who’s the editor in chief and who’s the person making the tea and coffee. Aabicus says it’s me but I don’t believe him. I’ve always liked writing random TF2 stuff and I already had that old crappy Medic blog I used to write, so why not work together to do this?
I don’t know what keeps me going. I think it’s stubbornness. I love this blog, it’s a nice hobby of mine and I don’t really want to see it go. Also, I donated to keep this blog (among other things) running, and I’m not normally someone to do that. Just goes to show how much I love TF2 blogging.
Aabicus: You’re definitely in charge, Medic. 🙂 I’d hazard to say you’ve done more for this blog than I have.
As for why I write for the blog; because otherwise, I’d spend my spare time doing something that accomplishes less. Writing is something I have boundless enthusiasm and patience for, and Team Fortress 2 is a subject that really fuels my muse. I enjoy connecting to an audience and I feel that I have important things to say on this topic that can educate others and even improve their game. Plus it gives me a more timeless venue to address issues I care strongly about; SPUF threads always felt too transitory, and you couldn’t attach pictures to augment your main point.
John Caveson: I do this blog because it’s relic of something: community involvement.
Due to lack of updates, and the closure of the SPUFserver, SPUF doesn’t have a lot of stuff keeping the community together. Seeing the community get so involved with something like this, brings warmth to my heart.
iGamr: I suppose for me this would be “Why do you announce while occasionally doing productive things for The Daily SPUF?” I suppose it’s just nice to contribute something SPUF-related. If nothing else, it gives me something to regularly post about on SPUF when other topics aren’t catching my interest. (Come to think of it, would I have even landed this position if it weren’t for the surge of activity I had during the CP_Freight Safety discussion thread?)
