Thanks for letting me know. I'm not sure what will happen to my content after this mini-series is done, just yet. And am not looking for payment -at least necessarily so, wouldn't object to the concept of course
What this series of articles aims to do is the following:
Discuss FFXIV and elements surrounding it in a specific manner. I aim for "objective", but admittedly optimism is a trait of mine, so I could say there's a "positive spin" somewhere.
Also, provide food for thought, to people who may not realise, or have stopped and thought how things might work in an MMORPG, from a business / marketing / consumer / design point of view. I'm no designer myself, but I'm a product manager in real life, and I have some experience in "normally obscure" fields such as forecasting, pricing models, feature sets, product lifecycles, blah blah blah.
And most importantly: Gauge whether my writing style, which is specific, and viewpoints are to the liking of people reading them. I don't expect, hope, or anticipate my articles to be "liked" by the random teenager playing LOL with their buddies right now, but feedback is important.
If you think -as Wint- that what I've posted in here would be welcome, in a similar form, to Zam, I could consider it among my options to keep this going.
To clarify, I never intended to 'start a blog' about these articles. However, I found FFXIVRealm an easy platform to put them somewhere, on an existing website, where they could be found and read easily. An independent blog needs daily updates in my view, and apart from "this special week" I am not able to provide so rapid updates.
But - An article / op-ed or two, per week, would work.
I hope you see the logic behind this and you can either respond here or via a PM about your opinion :)
