Alright. At the behest of the majority of my Twitter followers tired of reading poorly formatted TwitLonger rants, I have decided to start a blog where I can share my views and opinions (whether they be gaming, politics, or whatever) with anybody who cares to hear them.
I come from a web background, so setting up a blog was the easy part. The hard part was picking a domain name. After considering all the usual suspects (and discovering JD2020.com was taken by a fan…), I decided that the standard “FirstNameLastName.com” format was too boring for me. So I looked to one of my favorite JD_2020 memes around, #BlameJD, for inspiration. Frankly, I assumed the domain was taken long ago, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to see who owns it or when it would expire….
But, it was available! What are the odds? I ask not out of arrogance, but out of sheer probability. Ignoring who I am, or what I did in the industry for a minute – just imagine all the people that go by “JD” in the world. Wouldn’t somebody somewhere have created a parody site making fun of their buddy, blaming him for something stupid he did or something along those lines?
And yeah, in the Call of Duty community, Blaming JD became quite a common occurrence during my tenure. Hell, t-shirts were made. Considering all the parody sites that *did* exist poking fun at me, you’d think this, the most obvious .com, would have been one of them.
Well, it wasn’t. So now it’s mine! If you want a little more history on #BlameJD, click here. And otherwise, welcome to the blog. Hope to see some familiar faces join me as I continue to navigate through the industry!
