Player 1's Diary Status: Rebuilding(?)

March 12, 2015

Sorry for the unforeshadowed site implosion, everyone. No, Player 1's Diary was not hacked; I took it down myself after realizing that WordPress isn't a good fit for my site. From the beginning, I wanted it to be a place to showcase my creative work, but I got away from that when I decided to turn it into a WordPress blog. It worked for a while, but it didn't translate very well into long-term audience engagement (the only feedback I've received was on my Review a Bad/Great Game Day articles and the Analogue: A Hate Story achievement guides; the rest of it is about 99% spam).

Perhaps another redesign is in where I can just focus on self-publishing as well as updating my video game collection from time to time. It'll be a significant downgrade from what I'd been doing for the past several years with P1D and its predecessor, Red Mage Needs Food Badly, but it'll be a more personal experience, since I'll be going back to my "young Internet" web design roots and doing a majority of the coding myself. The release date of the new (and probably final) version of the site hasn't been determined yet, but I'll replace this page when it's ready.

In the meantime, you can catch up with me on Twitter, or see my work on Tumblr or DeviantArt. Keep an eye out on any of those channels for when this site goes back up. Again, sorry to spring this on you so suddenly. I'll be back...I think.
