I was just going through one of the other blogs that I follow ('Follow?' What's that, Kit?) when I ran across the following line:
"It (Magic: The Gathering)'s been around forever. I actually built a deck in 1995..."
Hey - what a coincidence! It was during that same year - my first terrible semester as a college undergraduate - when I...
"...when I was in fourth grade."
...and suddenly, all of the big words that I usually rely upon so heavily failed me completely.
Still, I'd already been pondering such things lately - and as these thoughts now seem to be particularly important: What does my voice bring to the already-overcrowded community of online commentators that could possibly be at all unique, anyway?
And how can I ever hope to achieve any sort of relevancy in comparison to the sheer magnitude of all the other work that's already out there - competing with the dedicated websites which exclusively feature the talents of those aforementioned creative young people?
At any rate, I hope to explore these issues more thoroughly in the weeks to come. Seeing as though I have very little time at present for anything other than my job and my continued education, for the moment I guess I'll just have to label my further ramblings on the matter as merely being works-in-progress.
