I’ve had this blog for a just under a year, and most of it has been Game of Thrones-related. Not episode recaps or reviews, mostly opinions, or musings, or justifying some the characters’ bad decisions. I guess.
Writing about the show is enjoyable, and helps pass the time in-between seasons. (Only 9 more months until Season 5!) And the television show provides tons of things to write and opine about.
To my joy (and thanks to great support from some of my favorite podcasts who were very generous towards me) my blog received attention during Season Four, and I was asked by the publisher over at the Film School Rejects site if I’d be willing to write a recap for the most recent season for them.
Well, yes! I would indeed be willing. And so I did.
Now I can tell my dad that I got paid for all this blogging. (Don’t get excited, Dad. My recompense will finance a dinner out with my wife. I’m not quitting my day job.)
Should you wish to leave comments, here or there, awesome. Busting on me for my shameless self-promotion is not discouraged. I’m guilty, yo.
With luck, I’ll be able to swing a few more quest-contributor articles focusing on Game of Thrones, but I’ll still be posting my own GoT-related articles here. One every fortnight* until 2015, and then I’ll be posting every week until Season Five starts, when I’ll take a hiatus to enjoy the show.
Next Wednesday (not this upcoming Wednesday, but the next one…) I’ll be posting an article about that rather minor character from Dorne, Prince Oberman. Oberwan-Kenobi. His name is something like that. Who can keep all those crazy names straight?
(Prince Oberyn. One of my stand-out favorites from A Storm of Swords. And I can finally talk about him.)
Images from HBO’s Game of Thrones, obviously.
*Why Fortnight? I was confused that bi-weekly and bi-monthly can mean The Same Thing (as in once every two weeks, although bi-weekly *can* mean twice a week, and bi-monthy *can* mean once every two months.) Rather than use semi-monthly (or a term I considered coining “hemi-monthly”) I thought ye olde terme Fortnight would be good to use for Game of Thrones stuff.
