LDG has Moved!

You are reading this correctly. We here at Link Dead Gaming are more than pleased to present to you our new fangled, handy dandy website located at www.LinkDeadGaming.com. Some of you have been using that address the entire time, and will see it when you go to where you have always gone, while others of you that visited us through wordpress will find us there. While we love wordpress.com, and all of the things they did for us, there are just certain things we needed that can only be gotten through a wordpress.org site.  We hope to see all the faces over there with us, and hopefully some new ones as well, as we grow bigger and better in order to bring you the best of PC gaming news.


A segment of a social network

Networking everything together

As I get everything setup and ready to go, I wanted to write a bit about it, and what comes along with it. Never having created a Blog or Podcast before, I did not really know what I was getting into, but I did know it would take some work to make it good. After garnering the DNS name, and creating a WordPress Blog to go with the Podcast, I attempted to put everything in order in my mind. It is my intention to create a Podcast that appeals to many levels of gamers, and I wanted that to be reflected in everything I created here. I went about setting up a facebook page just for the show. I created two separate Twitter accounts, one for me and one for the show because there may be times that I tweet something that is not show related. Getting everything to mesh together well has turned out to be the largest obstacle as these days we have so many social networking venues at our fingertips that the sheer act of attempting to hit them all can be mind-boggling.

I believe the goal of anyone that does this is probably to entertain, and it is important to me that as my audience, the end result you get is exciting, relevant, and lets you know that we are of the same mind concerning whatever topic it is that I am discussing. To that end, it is my hope that all of the backend production that I am doing or have already done helps to convey this to the audience. We are very quickly approaching our rehearsal, where I will get to see how well everything has come together, and I have been contemplating putting it up on the site for everyone to listen to and give feedback on. I think by doing this, it will encourage the hosts to put on their best performance, as well as allow what will become our audience to see what it was like at the beginning.

Well, off I go back to making sure everything is ship-shape before this bird really gets off the ground.
