We at Lightworks Games have a blog about our experiences getting our game company started and making our first game.
You can check it out here: http://www.lightworksgames.com/blog
The title of this thread is funny, because it sounds a little bit like Bog Roll, which is crude English speak for "Toilet Paper". And it's like a Roll Call... ah, forget it.
Anyway -- I'm always on the lookout for Blogs to read, as I don't smoke and have to find another vice to waste time at work while everyone else heads outside once an hour for ten minutes to puff their lives away.
Mine is http://gibbage.blogspot.com
Just wondering if there are any I'm missing, so please do post yours up here... and yes, DrW; I'm aware of Qatfish's excellent Blog raking-in efforts, but I need more, see? Besides, GibbageBlog isn't listed there so ptptptptptptph to you.

Hey, have I mentioned that you can see all the best blogs about game development over at www.Qatfish.com? It's a one-stop shop for game dev blogs. :P
No, no... I'm not sure I've heard of that. I'll check it out, thanks. I understand the quality of the blogs there has recently improved exponentially...Hey, have I mentioned that you can see all the best blogs about game development over at www.Qatfish.com?

I have a crude blog called Momentary Fascinations. It has game and non-game stuff on it. The one cardinal rule is that it's all new material, not simply another LOOKIT TEH NEAT LINKZORS I SAW IT ON DIGG blog. As a result, it only gets updated when I have the time to sit down and write an essay.
Does your blog have an RSS feed exposed in anyway? I was going to add it to my monitored blogs in thunderbird but can't find a feed for it :POriginally Posted by Larry Hastings
My blogs @ blog.figmentgames.com not totally game dev oriented although I do try I still tend to post about other things I find interesting at the time.

Good rule. Mine's the same -- I refuse to link to all the stories that everyone else is linking to. Also, I'm doing my best to keep away from the usual overly-personal Blog stuff of: "I took likkle Fluffy to the vet's on Tuesday and it cost £250!" on the basis that seriously, noone cares...The one cardinal rule is that it's all new material, not simply another LOOKIT TEH NEAT LINKZORS I SAW IT ON DIGG blog

Turns out thinking up witty and interesting material is pretty tough... uh... isn't it?
Not so much a blog, as a game development diary:
i.e. not so much a commentary on the state of game development, more a commentary on the development of one game and how it is destroying my soul...
I know that feeling...a commentary on the development of one game and how it is destroying my soul...
http://friedchips.blogspot.com is my blog. Not much traffic at the moment I think (how do you check?) and I really ought to have a post about the game in detail.
My main annoyance is that the current part of the project doesn't yield tangible results, so how can I post regular updates of any real interest?
Not a blog, but I've expanded our regular newsletter to have - gasp! - actual content!
Trying to expand the contents a little with each issue.
Tales of the Rampant Coyote: Old School Game Developer talks about games and stuff.
I've been trying to post something at least reasonably fitting every couple of days.

Sorry, it doesn't. I did specifically say it was "crude". I believe it's possible to coax PyBloxsom into generating one, but I haven't investigated it. Try back in a couple months; maybe I'll have gotten a handle on it then.Originally Posted by Gary Preston
Yes, I call that the "I had a really good cheese sandwich the other day" style of blogging. (Though if I were in a kind mood, I'd refer to it as a "public diary".)Originally Posted by DanMarshall
