After a year and a half of Home Button things are changing. We are evolving you might say, but no, you can’t press B to cancel it!
Nearly a year and a half ago I started Home Button after a period of grieving for my father’s passing. I missed writing about videogames and I was tired of letting the excuse of “nobody will read it” get in the way of me actually writing. So that is what I did–I just started writing. I’ve written some things I’m incredibly proud of since opening the blog (you can read about some of them on our anniversary post here), and I’m grateful to each and every single person who took even a minute of their day to look at my Photo Mode posts or read even a paragraph of one of my articles. My audience is small, woefully so some might claim, but I’m so very thankful to each and every one of you.
This might be sounding like I’m saying goodbye to Home Button, and that is because I am in some ways. In other ways Home Button is just evolving into its next form–hence the Pokemon references that I’m incredibly proud of myself for coming up with. Since a good deal of my readers are also my fellow Mages from The Well-Red Mage some of you may already be familiar with what I’m talking about, but for those who aren’t I’d like to introduce you to Epic Drop.
What is Epic Drop? Well, in a nutshell it is a combination of my passion for videogames alongside my growing passion for weight loss and fitness. I’m currently an obese individual, but I’m finally making nearly 13 years of failing at diet after diet, and all the research I’ve done throughout those years, finally work for me. I wanted to foster a place that shared information from both realms to spread awareness between both groups without talking down to either, and maybe we can have some cross over from one spectrum to another.
Home Button’s biggest weakness was that I didn’t have a clear vision for it, and it just felt to me like just another videogame site on the internet. Epic Drop is different, I have a clear vision and with the experience I’ve gained writing articles for Home Button I think I can make it something really special with your help. I eventually plan on having an real domain, Patreon, a YouTube channel, and two (!) podcasts–one for fitness and one for gaming. The name of my gaming podcast? You guessed it, Home Button.
I’m really hoping to be able to devote more time to writing while combining topics, and while you can sort the page to only see one type of content, I hope you’ll read them all. If you would be so kind I would appreciate everyone who is currently subscribed to me on Home Button to follow me on Epic Drop as well–all of my Home Button content has been duplicated there. As for Home Button it’ll remain up for the foreseeable future as it costs me nothing to maintain, but I do not plan to update it any longer.
Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll follow me on this new adventure. Have a great day!
