Leisure Games Blog

The leisuregames Blog

In a moment of madness it was decided at last night's Staff Meeting that we would open up the Leisure Games Blog a bit more and expand it from just being our 'New Releases' Blog.

To be fair when we set the Blog up we had intended to use it a bit more to talk about games, forthcoming releases, events and general chit-chat about the shop and industry related matters. Time seemed to forever be curtailing those dreams and desires though.

So, from today we've opened the blog up to all our staff members to use so you can start expecting to see more activity and also get to know Sean, Dave and possibly even Mike (if we can pull him off Puzzle Pirates during his lunch break and time off :p) as well as me (Angus).

There's a host of things that we'll be looking at doing in the coming months - and not only on the blog - so keep an eye out and please let us know any comments about anything we do as feedback is always useful (both congratulatory and critical).

Anyway, Sean has already kicked off with a new post this evening and I'm sure the boys will be stopping by more in the coming days. I'll probably be dropping by again next week with the New Releases as usual and maybe even some pictures of the crew from UK Games Expo in Birmingham this weekend!

So if you're interested in the shop or the industry or just want to clutter your friends page even more please pop over to the leisuregames blog friend us!

Best wishes and Happy Gaming!

A good idea, one thign to differentiate (slightly) is that livejournal is a journalling service (like a diary) as opposed to a blog (a series of posts around a theme, person or idea). I am being a slight pedant, but journals and blogs use different tools and languages and send different messages to your readers.

I recommend investigating Seth Godin (http://sethgodin.typepad.com/). He has a lot to say about business blogging (he likes it, he thinks it'll net you a lot of interest and thus more business).

What might be an idea is to talk to your web team and integrate the LJ/blog with the leisuregames webpage-add an RSS feed so non-LJ users can subscribe and read what you're up to-I know I'll be adding the RSS feed to my inbox, but I have the fu of looking and finding RSS from LJ. If you want to reach a wider audience, advertise the RSS on the frontpage of leisuregames.com. Makes it easier to find, and also means if I am a gamer but not LJer, I can read more about you.

As for podcasting, again, that's a tricky one. I have flirted with the idea, but need a theme. I do wonder in the mileage in something like having a regular skype/online chat between you, fanboy.dave and others and podcasting that. I know I'd be fascinated to listen to the mixed opinions, chat and rancomness that would ensue.

Can you spot I think about this kind of thing a lot ;). If any of this strikes a chord, give me a shout, am more than happy to bounce more suggestions your way.
