Hello everyone, welcome to Nintendo News — a brand-new blog dedicated to delivering the most popular Wii U, 3DS, and Nintendo company news on the Internet. You might be thinking, “well, there’s already too many Nintendo news-related sites to keep up with as it is.”
For the past six years, I’ve kept a watchful eye on over fifty of the most popular Nintendo communities and fan sites scattered across the Internet. Some flourished, but most fell to the wayside as a result of short-term high school projects. Or so it seemed. What I ultimately came to realize is that roughly 80% of those communities never had a vision. There were no long-term goals in mind. There was no fire or passion. There was no journalistic endurance. There was simply not enough steam to keep the ink flowing. I was one of those fifty communities — under a handful of other website names — but I’m also proud to be part of the small 20% that decided to keep pursuing a lifelong passion.
A large part of why I decided to stick around can be attributed to the support and feedback from like-minded people around the world. Nintendo fans are just fun to be around: good, bad, and indifferent. Another reason why I’m still around is because I consider this to be a great hobby. It keeps me connected to my childhood — something I cherish and treasure very deeply. Ironically, I don’t have much time to experience new games or relive the ones I grew up with. I’ve made that sacrifice to stay connected with all of you by delivering fun and interesting Nintendo-related news. Good decisions, bad decisions, weird decisions — I’ve made them all during this surreal journey. Overall, each of those decisions have molded a much more solid foundation for my future desires.
When it comes down to it, I just really enjoy being around all of you and discussing Nintendo stuff. I’ve committed myself to a brand-new beginning and I consider this new Nintendo blog to be a major milestone in my life, and I look forward to sharing many more years of that with each and every one of you.
