I kind of fell into writing to begin with, at a time in my life when I felt directionless. I spent some time writing as a hobby. Then it turned into paying work with 148Apps, and other freelance outlets came along. And even during TA, I've contributed elsewhere. But TA always felt like home, and it was tough to write elsewhere because I enjoyed doing so under the TA banner. It was a tough decision to cease spending the majority of my time with 148Apps, because you never know how a new outlet you spend a lot of time working for is going to turn out. Are you going to mesh well with the editors? Will you get the support you need? I've made some people mad with some of my opinions here at TA, but I'm proud to say that Eli and the crew have had my back. And I have been thrown under the bus before.
But this isn't the end of TouchArcade or for me, this is just a splitting off point. I'm sure there's some other rad contributors who can help to fill the void that I'm leaving. And this is just a new chapter beginning for me.
For folks who enjoyed my Twitch streams, I'm planning on doing some streaming once I get situated over on
Thanks for all your support the past three years, folks. Thanks for reading, thanks for the comments both supportive and angry, thanks for watching my streams, thanks so much. It's silly to say, but mobile games and being able to talk about the world around them has given a lot of meaning to my life. And it's so rewarding to see people enjoy what I do. This isn't the end, and I hope to be talking about mobile games for a long time in the future. It's going to be elsewhere for now, but I'm proud of my time at TouchArcade, and will be a proud reader and supporter from here on out.
Thank you. It's been a five-star time.
