Am I getting more awesome?

Am I awesome?

Well that’s sort of a silly question. Of course I am. I’m me, after all.

But is it possible that I’m getting more awesome?

I can’t say for sure, but the fact that I’ve joined together with an international cadre of bloggers recognized for their awesomeness can only be a good sign.

So far our awesomeness is primarily self-proclaimed, but we’ve got the title to put us over the top as the most awesome blog on the interwebs: The Coalition of Awesomeness!

Pretty snazzy title, ain’t it? Guaranteed success, I tell you.

Anyway, I’ve joined in with a few other bloggers, and we’re posting on a different theme every couple of weeks. The first topic is “your fondest gaming memory” and my first post just went up. I posted a story of long ago, back in the mists of time before the Web even was – when we actually had to go to each other’s houses to play a game together. The game in question redefined the entire adventure game genre: Myst. And within was one puzzle which defied a band of just-out-of-college geeks to stay up waaaaay past their bedtimes.

Go on, head over and taste the awesome!

(and leave comments! You people are a pretty quiet bunch, but you’re all awesome enough, even if it’s just because you read this blog, to speak up over there.)

    If this “Coalition” has done anything, it has exposed me to yet another blog that I’m really enjoying reading. I hove found myself saying “I love your work” a lot lately. At the risk of sounding trite (and having spent the last half hour or so reading some of your posts here) “I love your work!” Adding http://www.caddicks.com to the ol’ Google Reader right now!

    Thanks, man. I appreciate the compliment. I’ve been doing the same thing (going to other COA member blogs, not spending a half-hour reading my own stuff… though I guess I’ve done both lately). I’ve actually got a new folder in my Google Reader now to hold on the COA member blogs. Good stuff!
