All Change?

I started this blog last year after deciding that my playing Advanced Squad Leader was just not relaxing for me anymore. We'd also got a new baby in the house which meant gaming time was minimal and I always remembered finding painting a relaxing experience. As my last project had been AWI - and I was still reading related material - that seemed the obvious place to start. Hence this blog.

Recently, as I've made a few more meetings of the Tyneside Wargames Club, the odd show, and read more online forums interests have started to diversify. This shows in the few SYW and WW2 posts here. Now I'm really facing a similar dilemma to Giles over at Tarleton's Quarter here. Do I restrict this blog to just AWI and move more diverse wargaming content to it's own blog? Or do I change the scope of this blog? Or start a new one, import all the content from here and make sure it's all clearly labelled? Seeing as I use a domain name for the blog I would assume that links would just transfer over easily.

Also I feel the need to keep more uptodate posting here and if I keep it more general then I'm more likely to post something rather than waiting on new figures to post. it's been weeks since the last post and little painting done but lots of reading, more figures/terrain/rules bought, more ideas for spreading my limited gaming time even thinner! :)

We shall see...

I wouldn't worry about having an AWI-labeled blog and posting on other topics. The important thing is that you're enjoying what you're doing.

I like the combined blog, but I'm biased, since I do a combined all-wargaming blog.

I've a feeling I may move to a combined. Just need to think through how to organise and present it. Plus preparing a chunk of content for the new periods.

So much to do, so little time...
