With 2013 now over and done with, I thought I would do something rather pointless as a motivational tool for myself. I’m posting a huge sprawling wall of HTML links to the internet of every article written by me, contributed to by me or written about me on the internet this year.

I’m going to spend the next 24 hours or so digging through this list and seeing how far I have come over the past year, what I have achieved and how far I have come. This is probably of no interest to the rest of the world, but if you want to have a look through you may well find something interesting I wrote that you haven’t yet seen.

Bam. That’s actually more writing that I thought it would be.

Above are links to over 270 articles I published online this year or that were published about me. Broken down and including print media I wrote 102 Features, 30 News Posts, 70 Reviews, 32 Previews, 31 Hours of Podcasts and 27 Interviews. On top of that I did talks on getting paid to review Anime and Video Games at Nine Worlds and Alcon, did a panel on Feminism and LGBT Issues in Games at Nine Worlds, did a panel at Loading in London on 2013 in Video Games and even did a talk for Bradford Uni’s Game Design and Dev students about Press and PR for Indies. I got brought onto BBC Radio 5 Live at about 2am to talk about Indie games, got to podcast with some of my favourite people and even got to chat with some of my idols.

 

My god, this had been a Bloody Busy year. Bring on 2014.
