What’s next for GamersUnitedGG?

 

Now that I have completed the editing process of my first book, I can focus on playing video games, binge watching shows and blogging about them here. This past week I’ve posted Raft:First Impressions, Overcooked 2: First Impressions, Favorite Call of Duty Perks, Our Patreon Reboot and Our Discord Servers! It’s been a interesting week and next week should bring more exciting posts.

 

Here’s What you can expect to read next week:

  • Memoirs of A Villain – Hopefully I can finally finish Bowser and add in ____ from the Blogger Blitz Round 1 Match-up taking place on the Adventure Rules Blog!
  • Netflix Series of the Week: Insatiable -(this series has had controversial feedback so I decided to watch and see for myself)
  • Harry Potter Tag
  • Luna’s Rankings – Favorite Harry Potter Characters
  • Preparing for my first RPG game in real life!

 

On Patreon:

  • An inside look at Game Night with friends!

 

On Discord:

  • Talking About New Fortnite Skins
  • Talking About Early Access Games
  • Talking About Red Dead Redemption 2

That’s what the week will look like in my world. Feel free to drop by the Discord Servers to talk about your favorite games and post your latest video game blog post! If you have Overcooked 2 on PC, I will be playing Friday after 7pm EST and Sunday all day.

What are you currently working on? Are you close to any milestones? Let’s talk!

1 Year of GamersUnitedGG!

Happy Thursday Novas, Players and Superstars! Yesterday, I received a notification from WordPress and unlocked the Achievement of blogging for 1 year! This past year has been a rollercoaster of emotions and I can’t believe I stuck it out this long. Today’s post is a thank you post for sticking with us throughout the year and a glimpse of what is to come from us here at GamersUnitedGG!

Past:

pacman_multi_agent

I’ve mentioned this before but GamersUnitedGG started as a Gaming Blog but transformed into a place that I can geek out, fan girl out and rant about all of my interests! I really love some of the segments that I have written and I look to bring them back in the future, Meow.

 

Present:

overwatch

We have launched the GamersUnitedGG YouTube Channel and will be uploading gaming videos 2-3 times a week. I’m getting my editing software by the end of the month so the intros and sound quality will be better in the future. Currently, we have the blogging competition to celebrate the 1 year anniversary going on. Luna’s Rankings posts happen every Tuesday at 11:30am EST where I will rank my top 5 favorite items in a topic from 5th place to 1st place. I’m also asking for your top 5’s so that we can display the “Community Rankings” the following week. This week we’re ranking Game of Thrones characters! The Video Game Tag will be up by the end of the month as well1

 

Future:

oculus

I’ve signed up to work on the Year of RPG, project with Athena at AmbiGaming. We will also be participating in the GameBlast weekend to raise awareness for Special Effect. Make sure to tune into Later Levels for more information and check out the stream in March! Click here for details! I’m going to be holding a Bi-Monthly blogging competition after the current one! I want to participate in more blogging competitions and collaborations throughout the year.

 

Acknowledgements:

I wanted to acknowledge some awesome people that I have met over the year of blogging. It’s impossible to mention everyone but I value all of the relationships that I have made and I will continue to make more.

 

Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek – I met Drew really early in my blogging career and his book reviews mixed with his sarcasm really drew (no pun intended lol) me in. I recently told him this but his blog really inspired me to not conform and write in my own voice. When you start something new, you want desperately to be accepted so you start to lose your way and your voice and Drew’s outlook on his book reviews really connected with me. Somehow, I think he helped me expand beyond just being a video game blog.

 

Reads & Reels – This was the second book blogger that I followed and I was so grateful to read the reviews. Shenanigans brought a more friendly and understanding side to blogging for me. I really appreciated her comments, feedback and kind words as I trekked along this jungle known as the blogosphere. My first video game review (for Halo Wars 2) was made possible because of Reads & Reels. I built up the confidence to officially review a game and haven’t looked back!

 

IgnitedMoth – I’ve told her this many times, but I feel as though we are kindred spirits. From the first time I read her blog, about a series that I was interested in, I knew that she would help me on my journey to grow and create. I read through other articles and see how she would talk about comics, books, shows and everything seemed to meld together. Nothing felt out of place. I would wake up and immediately search for any new articles that were written because she had such a great writing style and point of view. I can attribute my diversity to IgnitedMoth for sure! She also introduced me to NaNoWriMo and her version of the national novel writing competition early in the year.

 

Kim from Later Levels – Kim is one of the first blogging people I met as well. The year brought many collaborations, group messages and her infamous Blog Parties (which I’m always late to lol). Kim is very helpful and has a wonderful outlook on blogging, gaming and community. She will be participating in Game Blast and you can donate to the cause of Special Effect by clicking here.

 

The Comic Vault– The comic Vault was one of my first comic blogs to follow. I’ve always been fascinated with comics but I haven’t read too many and I’m not familiar with the canon. The Comic Vault introduced me to details about our favorite heroes, villains and sidekicks that I would have not known otherwise.

 

Precinct1313 – Is the second comic blog I followed and his sense for alliteration, absolutely, astounding and attained me (see what I did there 😉 ). I really love the interviews with comic characters and they inspired me to come up with the Memoirs of A Villain series. I love learning all of the intricacies of comic characters and their personalities. I am most thankful for the spreads on Wonder Woman that started the curve my interest in the hero.

 

DoubleJump – My Mushroom ranking system for game reviews and first impression posts are thanks to the hearts and lives rankings on Double Jump. Kris and Rachel have an amazing gaming blog and I love seeing how their Mii’s will rate an aspect of a video game. What’s great about their blog is that you will always receive 2 point of views on the review.

 

Thero159 – I met a while ago and has been a great friend and blogging buddy. Thero has introduced me to the events on FFXIV and with he posts, I was successfully able to complete them. She also introduced me to Offworld Trading Company which I love and the great Humble Bumble subscriptions that I have never used before. Thero has a great diverse mix of video games, comics, books and geeky interests to keep everyone entertained.

Those are some of the people that I have gotten to know over my year in blogging and I’m very grateful to have them. Thank you again for staying with us for a year and here’s to another great year of blogging, friends and most importantly, Video Games!

-Luna

Wow, thank you very much to all that decide to read our blog and ramblings. To celebrate, I’m going to take a hint from one of our lovely friends Holly over at BlogHollyBlog! Later next week I will post a Q & A and I would love for you all to ask me some questions that you would like to know. Please leave your questions in the comments and I will answer them in next week’s post!

Blogger’s Lan Party: Saturday we are finally going to host our very own Blog Party! the title of the post will most likely be something cheeky like a Lan Party or something, but I encourage everyone on the blog to stop by  and mingle with other bloggers! Since the theme it’s going to be a Lan Party, when you stop by, please mention a video game that you have brought to the party and leave a link to any blog post that you would like share with us. Next, mingle with guests, build new relationships, show off your dance skills and let’s live up the party!

Newsletter: I’ve decided to start releasing a Newsletter each month (starting on the first week of September). The Newsletter will have posts from our contributors, upcoming projects and spotlights on other great blogs included. There will be an official blog post released sometime next week with the details and how to sign up for the letter! Also, I will be asking for guest bloggers to contribute posts as well, very exciting.

Gaming Channel: My friend Emily and I are going to start a gaming YouTube channel showing off our competitive games and funny hi-jinks. The first video will be us playing Sonic Mania’s Competition mode! This will most likely go live mid September.

Community Gaming Leaderboards Challenge- Still working out the details for this event so it may be a while before it goes live. Pretty much we’re figuring out a way to have the Leaderboards from a game on Steam updated to the blog. Many kinks to work out still.

There’s a few more things in the works, but these are the most important projects at the moment. Also, please feel free to tell me what type of blog posts you really enjoy. The blog has produced great segments like the Ultimate TKO Fan Faction battles of 2 different characters and the Hidden Treasures post. If there’s anything you would like to see more of, just let me know!

Thank you all, you have no idea how I’ve enjoyed our conversations! 10 Gold Stars for each of you! For anyone I have missed, I am sorry and throw salad at me lol.

For this post I would like to include a small quick poem that I wrote at work one night. I was on break sitting outside looking at the stars that shown especially brighter that night.

What Happened to the Stars that we looked upon that night,

They cuddled us and kept us safe, they taught us how to fight,

For all of our hopes and wishes, sent floating up to thee,

We made a wish once everyday and drifted off to sleep,

Before the dawn would break the dipper really saved,

A sip from its plentiful cup, our thirst forever craved,

I think I saw a meteor once, but no one would believe,

The cascading line across the sky, pixels it did leave,

I traveled with it on its path, at least as far as I could see,

The ball of fire left behind, a fragile broken me,

How I’ve longed to go with it across the milky way,

To taste the dew and feel the warmth of night switching to day,

Now when I stare above my eyes no longer gleam,

The twinkle that I’ve once felt isn’t what it seems.

thank you  Also I would like to welcome all of the blogs New Followers and Friends!
