To help savor and prolong the experience as well as stave off over-playing and allowing an inordinate time-suck, I’d put together a nightly schedule of them that pretty much mimicked a nightly TV schedule rollout. My game playtime is typically during primetime hours, of course, after the kiddos head to bed and before I return to my office for one last hurrah of creativity before calling it a day.  The weekly roster consisted of the following:   But after two or three weeks, the schedule faltered, of course. And now the games contend with the returning TV shows.

First things first. This is not really about “Brandon Rucker News”, it’s more about connecting with other interesting people and intellectual minds, sharing our thoughts, interests, passions, gripes and ideas with each other, and more. Sure, I’m taking the lead by asking you to join me and allow me to inform and entertain you for maybe five minutes at most, but I’m also hoping to inspire you to do the same so that you can in return inform and entertain me as well, perhaps with your own series of newsletters. But why a newsletter? Why not keep rocking the blog? Short answer: it seems like a cool thing to do. Long answer: I’m still rocking the blog, but its contents will now be less personal and hopefully broader in scope. Yet, while the overall reach of personal blogs/websites has decreased some in recent years due to social media platforms like Facebook …
