What better way to welcome you to our very new site than with an introduction? I believe in connecting with people on a personal level. Why should you care about what I have to say when you don’t even know me?
In the gaming world, I am known as Insomnia Princess. Most people call me “IP” for short. Why is that my gamer tag/handle? In short, because some friends gave me that title many years back. I’ll probably share that story with you one day.
Do I actually have insomnia? Well, not so much anymore but I’m certainly no morning person. You’ll typically find me enjoying games or writing late into the evening if it’s during the week. If it’s the weekend, you might find me earning that nickname honestly. There’s a good chance you’ll see my partner in crime, Caelestis, with me too.
Born in the greatest generation ever (shout-out to all the 80s kids!), I grew up on classic games, the NES, Saturday morning cartoons and sugary cereals with really cheesy mascots. While I got my gamer start on consoles (and arcades at the mall), the PC is my platform of choice these days. This doesn’t mean I won’t still enjoy some console fun but the majority of my gaming is done on my computer.
By day, I am a content marketer and social media strategist, which is a fancy way of saying I am a writer and I teach businesses and individuals how to post to their social media. I’ve been playing games almost as long as I can remember and I’ve been writing about games and technology professionally for more than 10 years.
I plan to bring that passion and experience to this site to inform and entertain you, or at least to attempt the latter. Thanks for joining us here. I look forward to many more posts and fun ahead!
