I read a lot of blogs, i currently have 136 subscriptions in Google Reader and about 1/3 to 1/2 of those are gaming related. Most bloggers, that I read, make at least some reference to their personal life, often to provide context for opinions, but no one really goes into detailed about their backgrounds or explores why they write. For most of us it is enough to write without doing any writing about writing.
Randolph over at Grinding to Valhalla has started a project to change that. He’s gotten quite a few bloggers (including me) to fill out questionnaires about themselves and their backgrounds. One of the things I find interesting about his blog is the categories he’s put together. You can look at bloggers by experience level (age), hearthstone (location), and profession (both actual and dream).
