MTG - A New Type of Journey on Art Evolve

Monday, January 13, 2014

Good afternoon, dear readers! :D

As you well know, my blog posts have always been a sort of mish-mash of themes, ranging from art to cosmetics reviews, photography, and even cookies!

While I will still be doing reviews and posts about the above subjects, I really want to continue branching out, and discuss a more varied range of topics that interest me.  Recently, I have felt a bit stagnant in the blogging department (as I am sure many of you have noticed), and I feel that this will help give myself a much needed boost.

There are always risks when moving in different directions in life, but there can also be many benefits.

I know that most of my readers have been introduced to my blog over the years because of my posts on cosmetics and nail art.  I also know that there is a definite possibility of losing readers when I go off the beaten path of my previous blog themes.  However, I feel that my blog is a sort of extension of myself, and as I am constantly changing, so too will the topics I write about.

I decided that a new series of posts on my blog will be about Magic: The Gathering.

I really enjoy this game for many reasons, and I would love to become a better Magic player.  My hope is that by writing about it, I can share my passion with those of you who are also fans of the game, and to possibly even pique the interest of a few others who may have never really given MTG much consideration before now.

In my recent 'It's Almost 2014' post, I briefly mentioned my renewed interest in MTG and brought up a few points about why I am so fond of this game.  Over time, I would like to delve deeper into the realms of Magic, discussing the art, story, individual cards and interesting combinations, core sets and expansion blocks, deck themes and ideas, and more.

I am in no way a professional player, but I hope to continually learn as I play and discuss the game.

Thank you for being awesome, and for the support you have given me over the years.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and I will be back soon with more Magic!

  1. I love the art on the MTG cards-- I don't play, but my husband is really into it and has... well... too many cards, lol! I like helping him unwrap them and sort them when he brings a big box home though!

    I don't play MTG, but as mentioned before my brother does and I am familiar with the game. I'm looking forward to what you'll be posting about it. :-)

  7. Very cool! Personally, I always adore it when the bloggers that I follow want to share more of their interests with their readers than just those that are at the core of their site. It's great to get a more rounded picture of someone and their passions - it makes me feel like I was friends with them in person all the more (if that make sense).
