Hello, and Welcome to my Blog. My name is Chad Borgardt, I am 17 years old with a passion to write and have a chance to reach people in some capacity or another. Fictional writing, specifically Science fiction, is something I enjoy writing a lot.
I've been slowly venturing into blogging and learning from others before I jump in myself. I look at many peoples blogs and see that blogging opens yourself up for everyone of your readers, whether one person or one million, to see every single crack and flaw that you have. For awhile that scared me, opening my writings up to critique and failure. But then I began to read many quotes on failing in the name of succeeding. This particular one caught my eye:
For some odd reason this quote pushed me over the edge. Out of all the great quotes, this one hit home. I had accepted failure when I did not even try once. I never had the courage to blog, every time I signed up some place to blog, I never posted anything. Now, after the countless time of giving up because of the possibility of failing, I've decided to come back and really blog, really begin to fulfill my dream to one day become an author.
The reason I've picked GI to be the first place I blog is because I love video games ever since I was a little kid and the N64 was available with Mario Kart and Lego Racing. So I decided to focus my passion for gaming and start writing about it. Whether or not people read this or not, I still will have overcome my fear, and took one step closer to my dream.
Thanks for taking the time to read,
