My blog updates continue – the About Page has been rewritten, and I (finally) created a twitter account for Evehermit.
I’m not sure how I will be using it – but I figured it would be a good idea to pay more attention to the EVE community there. First impressions though were not that great. What is up with the Facebook style – we will tell you want you want to see, Trends list? Worse, there does not seem to be a built in way to follow hash tags. I’d have thought that was such an obvious thing!? It might take me a little longer to get used to than expected.
I still have some page prettying to do on this blog (pictures), and I need to add some links back to CCP/the game site, but things are not far off where I wanted them to be.
There has been a catalyst for these changes. I’ve had a bee in my bonnet since the SOMER Blink and Ishukone Watch Scorpion sagas arose. I was disappointed CCP’s clumsy attempts at supporting the EVE Community had backfired and caused them such grief. As such, in my own small way, I am making a little more effort to be part of that community.
I’ve even formalised the focus for the blog – EVE for the Solo, Risk adverse, Empire Dwelling, constantly interrupted older player. I didn’t say I was aiming to be a vibrant and successful part of the community…
