For those who may be interested I have a blog that I use to “think out loud” and keep tabs on the various hobby projects my wife and I have.

I try to get at least one post a week with a progress report but there are other things like gaming battle reports as well. We focus largely on GW Middle Earth Strategy Battle Games, in particular a Battle Companies campaign, Battle Systems Core Space and Tarnished Splendor (a mix of 7th Sea RPG and Sharp Practice for a Napoleonic Horror, Pulp Exploration mashup of our own design).

In addition I also tend to throw in some movie, tv show or book reviews.

If it sounds like your kind of thing, I just posted today...

And my latest blog entry.... focusing largely on Dungeons and Lasers from Archon Studios.

With some discussion of morality, ethics and politics in gaming.... if you are into that kind of thing.
