Gamers are the most intriguing community on the internet – they can be inflammatory, friendly, professional, and technologically inclined all at once. Gamers Nexus is a fantastic informational hub in the gaming industry with a great platform for indie developers, modders, clans and guilds, and just plain old gamers all-in-one. Thanks to our blogging functionality, it can also be a nexus for your own opinions and thoughts on the gaming universe.

Registered GamersNexus.net users have the functionality to contribute to the Gaming Blogs section using the MyBlog application. Entries posted from your account are available for all GamersNexus.net users to see, and some may even get published in our featured columns. Follow the steps below to create your own blog.

Writing an Entry

To get started blogging, you need to create your first entry:

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
