Writing For LadiesGamers!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to write a quick little post to announce something new I’ll be doing in 2019 😉 As you may remember, back in November I posted an article I wrote for my friend Yvonne’s site, LadiesGamers, about my Animal Crossing Memories. I thought it was pretty neat of her to feature me on her site!

Now, Yvonne has reached out to me and asked if I wanted to become a permanent writer for her site! I think this is a great opportunity for me because not only are there a lot of really great people writing for her site, but I’ll be getting a chance to play and review some indie Switch titles, which I think is awesome!

My introduction was posted this morning on her site, yay! Here’s the link to the post so you can see it on her site, but I’m going to repost it here, just for fun. Most of you know who I am and this information about me may be things you already know, but I just wanted to share what I wrote!

Hey everyone! My name is Brandi- you may have already seen an article on LadiesGamers by me featuring my Animal Crossing Memories. Yvonne recently asked me if I wanted to join the team full-time, so here I am! 🙂

Kirby is my favorite character!

I’ve been a gamer pretty much as far back as I can remember. I was born in 1986, so I’ve seen many generations of consoles come and go- and I’ve enjoyed all of them! Though I am partial to Nintendo games and consoles, I do play and enjoy everything else as well. My husband and I own an Atari 2600, a Nintendo Switch, and a lot of consoles in between! That means we have a ton of games, and a hefty backlog that will probably never be cleared!

I enjoy many different types of games. Some of my favorite series include Animal Crossing, Kirby, and Donkey Kong Country. My favorite game of all time is Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the Super Nintendo- which happens to be my favorite system! For me, the SNES brings back so many wonderful childhood memories.

This game never gets old for me!

For my day job, I’m a psychometrist. That’s fancy way of saying I test people! I work mainly with the elderly population testing for indicators of Alzheimer’s/dementia and other memory loss problems; I also test brain injury patients, Parkinson’s disease patients, and depressed patients, among others. It’s a good job, but can be sad sometimes. That’s where video games come in handy! There is nothing like relaxing with a game after a long day at work. When I was a kid, video games used to be my respite from school work, and now they offer respite in my adult life as well!

I love this time of year!
The Animal Crossing series is so relaxing!

I’m excited to join the team at LadiesGamers. I feel like there’s a nice little community of people here! I have my own blog as well, Walk Away From The Sun, which is where I ramble on about video games I’ve played, gaming goodies I’ve purchased, and pretty much anything else gaming related! On my site, I write under the name DefyTheMajority 😉 Thanks for reading!

There ya have it! I’m so grateful for this opportunity and it’s very flattering to be asked to join Yvonne’s team! Of course, I will still be posting on my blog, so don’t worry about that. And when I do a game review, I’ll post it here as well!

Anyway, just wanted to share that exciting little tidbit with everyone. The year is almost over (!!) so I hope everyone enjoys their end of the year celebrations!! See ya in 2019! 😉
