Would You Like To Be Interviewed?

Stephen Fry once remarked that a newspaper columnist should be allowed, just once in his career, to write a column about not having anything to write a column about. In similar vein, this is the only time I'm going to write an entry in this blog about writing other blog entries.

That is, I'm thinking about doing some interviews in the spirit of (read: shameless rip-off of) Norman Geras' famous Friday morning normblog profiles - short profiles of other bloggers and regular commenters, though naturally to do with role playing games. Much more in-depth, inspiring and interesting than "What games do you like?" and "Do you like being a GM or a player?"

I have two corollary questions:

1 - As a reader, would this be something you'd like to see once a week or so (maybe every Friday or something), or would you rather just have the usual patented Daily Esoteric Nonsense Tangentially Related to Role Playing Games from the mind of yours truly?

2 - Would you like to be interviewed? I'm not interested in doing this with just the 'famous' bloggers; so long as you feel that you are interesting and have interesting things to say about games, and that other people might want to hear those things, please drop me a line. The address is jean.delumeau AT gmail DOT com.

Addendum: this does not mean that I'm running out of things to say and in need of filler, so never fear. As I'm sure you are aware by now, I can write reams of this tripe indefinitely.


  1. I think this could definitely be interesting! I'd like to see it :3

  2. Meta-blogging? Sounds like fun...and I'm sure we could use the energy release from the resulting vortex of recursion to power our mad science devices. :)

    wv: St Saur - a celestial tricerotops. Patron saint of extinction by asteroid. Doesn't get much work these days.

  3. Yeah, that would be a pretty cool project, I think. I'd definitely be interested in reading it.

  4. It could be interesting, but I'm not sure about a regular feature.

  5. Sounds like fun, and a nice way to change things up once a week.

  6. [OOC: I am only leaving a comment because the captcha word is DRIDER (!) 4 real!]

    But, while I'm here, I think the idea is a good one. A lot of blogs are really like auto-interviews and it often takes outside influence to break people out of their own habits and such

  7. The word verification thing is on fire today.

    Anyway, I have a few people lined up already, so the first one should be done by Friday.

  8. Sounds like a great idea! Like Ragorakk said.
