One night while cruising around the galaxy, I overheard my corpmates talking about a blog written by a w-space capsuleer. They swore up and down that it was the best Eve blog out there, although I judged them as fairly biased due to the fact we had just moved to a C3 ourselves. They informed me however that the move was actually inspired by the blog.
Alright, I’ll give it a gander.
Now I sit here writing my own Eve blog. Motivated by the catalog of Tiger Ear‘s adventures, I decided I wanted to follow her example for a few reasons:
- I’ve always wanted to write a blog, but until now I’ve never been particularly motivated to choose a topic and actually work on one.
- I’ve learned from my flight simulator days that a detailed flight log can make you a better pilot. It can alert you to mistakes you make repeatedly, as well as monitor progress or remind you of certain tricks and tactics that worked or didn’t work.
- I also have had a lot of great experiences in Eve and sort of wanted to capture them in a kind of online scrapbook. I’m often asked by other gamers why I like a game that at face value is so slow and tedious to get into (we can all admit the learning curve is steep). I would like to point them to exactly why I love the game and continue to play it!
I in no way consider this blog to be unique in anyway and completely blame Tiger Ear for inspiring this endeavor.
