The New Guy - Who cares Anyway?
I have been reading 40k blogs now for more than two years and I am amazed at the amount of information out there. Whatever it is that you are looking for I am sure you can find it.
There are guys that specialize in news, rumours, painting, sculpting, modelling and terrain to mention a few. I have saved for future use so many tips, hints, tricks that I will be busy for some time if I try and use them all in my hobby.
Now to the point, during these two years or more I have never left a comment! Not a word to say, great thanks for the tip or nice paint job or whatever. I didn't really think the blogger would care either way what I thought or had to say. That is until I started up my own blog, now I am on the other side of the fence and I am so excited when someone takes the time to leave a comment. I am more motivated, feel appreciated. I never understood that when I was just perusing the blogs. I am sure that even well established guys like 'From the Warp' still appreciated comments left after their posts. For us newbies its vital to keep up our motivation and it only takes 30 seconds.
So guys leave comments!
I also want to say thanks to Faeit 212 (kudos to you also for your Monday new blog promotion post) and Black Matt's Black Legion for their help, in the form of a plug on their blogs. Also thanks to everybody, special mention to Ron at From the Warp and Tim at Conflict Valorax, that took the time to leave me an encouraging comment and help out with some ideas to finish off my chapters background.
Its very much appreciated.
