2020 Vision

The year is 2020!

Cybernetic limbs with built-in smart weapons. United Defense Force troops battling the alien Mimics. Arno Stark becoming a villainous version of the superhero Iron Man. Gipsey Danger defends Anchorage against a Kaiju attack. The sport of robot boxing sweeps the world. 

Yes! None of that @%*^ is happening!

This is 2020 however, the year of renewal, new beginnings, and perhaps a good strong dose of unfounded optimism. Hey, any optimism in a storm right?

So what's the plan for The Barking Alien Blog in 2020?

A major directive to myself is to blog more than I did in 2019. Last year didn't see the lowest post count in the blog's 11 year existence - that occurred in 2018 - but it was definitely too low for my personal liking. It makes me sad to see a number below 120 for the entire year. It's disheartening in a way that is difficult to rationalize, let alone explain, but it does bring my overall mood down something fierce. 

Thankfully I have some big ideas for 2020 (One big idea in particular) and I am definitely going to want to share my thoughts.

Additionally, I have been inspired and energized by several friends, including some fellow game bloggers, who have told me they enjoy my blog. A few, who have renewed their own dedication to communicating their love of RPGs, have spurred me on even further with their reaffirmed zeal.

Love promotes love. You feel me? Righteous.

So what exactly is my vision for 2020? A concentrated effect to do what I [hopefully] do best; think about games, think about gaming, think about gamers, and maybe have some laughs along the way. 

Join me won't you?
