Moving Along

I wrestle over writing on the topics of faith, parenting, and gaming. Realizing that faith and gaming seem like polar opposite topics pitted against each other. I have a tendency to lean more towards gaming when I write as those posts get more clicks. That’s me being real. I hate how when I log into JBG, the first thing I see are the site statistics.

Over the years, I’ve been told to focus my blog more. Focus more on gaming, keep your faith and life posts to yourself or better yet, journal or start another blog for those. I’ve even had some encourage me to quit blogging, as it is a perceived waste of my time, and focus on writing for professional outlets.

In the shower this morning (where I do all my deep thinking, of course), I had one of those realizations that I’ve been allowing others, even complete strangers, to influence my thinking. Had to pray over this:

God help me to move on, to not be stuck on the past nor by what people have said. I’m tired of feeling held back by past hurt.

All of the above to say, that I’m going to keep writing. I’m going to keep blogging on the topics of faith, parenting, and gaming. Hopefully some of you find my writing helpful, insightful, funny, or just plain ludicrous.

Drop me a note in the comments section, if you have a moment. Let me know if you have benefited from joining me on this life journey. Thank you, as always, for reading. It means a lot to me.

  1. Ludicrous? Not really. I’ve yet to see one reference to Spaceballs on this blog…

    But I do find it insightful, funny, and helpful quite regularly. Should I ever have kids of my own, I can picture encountering some of the same situations that you share here. Now, if you just focused a bit more on 90s PC games…

    1. You know, I’ve referenced Spaceballs at least once before… can’t find the post. 🙂

      Appreciate the comment, Joe. More than willing to team up and work through a 90’s PC game. Could be fun?


  2. I do think rebranding to johnnybcrumudgeon will be a perfect fit for you! 😉 I think it sounds better than johnnyboldmangetoffmylawngamer or you know, something else actually clever or witty.

    But what do I know, I am just a butthole. 😉

    I love the heart behind your blog and just think you should write whatever your heart and fingers get out. Not everyone will like everything and that is ok.
