Opinions are everywhere, and in the modern day society where social media is something of a plague upon mankind and has been scientifically proven to play a large role in stunting social growth and leaving a younger population more prone to depression, we all like to have a place where we can share those opinions that we have. Normally this happens on places like Facebook and this leaves us with a constant bitter taste lingering in our mouths as we realise that some people we thought we really liked actually support the worst of the worst and then we question whether we like social media for making it easier to remove toxic people from our lives or whether we hate it for ruining what probably would have been a fine friendship otherwise.
Personally, I’ve always loved the idea of having my own website under my own control where I don’t need to worry about some third party company trying to steal my information to sell it to advertisers. And so here we are, on the Aerie, with all the opinions of a social media site and none of the third party media scrambling to get your information. How nice!
Currently undergoing some renovations -
Well frankly, I’ve never been very good at updating this website for as long as I’ve been alive. The previous website also seemed to have a few font issues depending on your browser and I was never entirely happy with the layout. Making reviews was tedious due to my chosen set up; honestly I should keep the reviews to the blog because they will be far easier to write and organise there.
So, between all these factors, it made the most sense to me to nuke the entire old website and rebuild it piece by piece.
The “About Me” page is in dire need of changing anyway as several factors in my life have changed and there’s really no good reason for it to still be the same page it was over a year ago. I still want to write reviews of games I play, I still want to have a more personal blog where I discuss non-
So, here’s the plan for how the website will look in the future:
• We’re going to run two blogs -
• There’s probably going to be a portfolio on this site at some point for my digital artwork.
The goal is by having less to update on the front of the site, I can write reviews more frequently and update in a more timely manner.
Game content is going to be moved to its own dedicated blog for a more streamlined review process.
Personal content is going to have its own blog too, to separate it from other game-
We’re going to have an art portfolio for all the digital art pieces I totally, definitely, always finish drawing.
I’m probably going to wind up ranting somewhere about how much I don’t like society or rich people.
Worry not, my main goal with this site is still to talk about video games. Actually we want to do that even more than we did before, with reviews and more opinion pieces!
This site is not and will never be supported by adverts, nor does this site want any of your information. I’ll go to an early grave before that.
The Airy Aerie is created, in its entirety, by Cassandra Grimes (hi, that’s me!) You can read more about the administrator if you want to.
The main purpose of this site was for me to write and host my reviews of various video games, and that remains true. Now in blog form!
The personal blog from before remains, except now it’s going to be entirely personal and not feature video game content.
