So in our previous blog, “Why Should Gamers Start a Blog?” we talked about the reasons for gamers to start their own blog. OK, so have you made your mind to start a gaming blog? Thinking what to write about? We have a list of ideas and concepts for game bloggers that apparently only tips the surface of the broad range of topics we are sure that you will be inspired to write about once you get started.
One feature of game blogging that many new bloggers might not realize is that starting a blog is your chance to give your in-game character an opportunity to have a voice and you can grow upon the character you have created and love. Here are some recommended topics for your game blog:
Lists: Lists work best for blogs. What are your all-time favorite games? You can write about the best games for the month, year, or a specific period. These all make great lists to write about.
Walk-through: A walk-through is an accurate description of the gameplay with coordinates, screenshots, and maps to help new gamers in navigating and figuring out how to play. If you write a post of a walk-through of your favorite game, it can help other players not to get frustrated with the game easily, or get defeated too easily. New players really acknowledge walk-through because they might have given up on their game without your guidance.
Help Other Gamers Decide: You can choose to write a blog that helps other gamers decide what type of game is appropriate for them. They may not have the experience in playing different games like you. You can elaborate your experiences about what it is like to play on different platforms, consoles, and devices.
Free vs. Paid Games: Are the games worth their price? This can make an excellent blog post because mostly all gamers want to know about the worth of their games before paying as there are so many free games out there. You can write about the best free games. You can write separate posts for free games on different platforms such as video games, mobile games, or online versions.
Is Participating Worth It?: Some online games have various hunts for you to go on. Other online games give your character a chance to claim or participate in the game to gain levels, points, or in-game currency. You can write about if it is worth it to participate in such activities or not.
How to Join a Community: Many online games have communities that you can join. Community members can become friends, play together and can help each in their game. You can write about topics related to communities such as “Best Games for Playing in Communities”, “Benefits of Joining a Community”, or tell your stories about the relationships you build with your community members.
Remember that a blog need not be written only in text. Add screenshots, images, and video of your gaming experiences so that your blog becomes rich with media and can engage your readers.
