As you’ve probably noticed, there have been some big changes around here.
A major evolution.
Yes, I’ve completely overhauled my blog!!!
Red Pill Game is now MarioFavela.com
New brand, new domain, new logo, new everything! Well, not quite everything.
I kept all the old content here.
So, why did I kill RPG?
For several reasons:
Not posting consistently, when you have a blog, is terrible. It really can be the kiss of death for a site.
And the longer you go without posting?
The harder it is to post again. And then you don’t. And then it gets difficult to get things going again. Time passes, the blog stagnates, you lose motivation, and so on.
A vicious cycle.
So yeah it’s super-easy to lose blogging momentum once it’s gone. And I’ve gotta admit it, my friend. Red Pill Game lost momentum. To get it back I needed a big change.
Something DRASTIC like starting over with a fresh brand name…
I’d Outgrown Red Pill Game
There’s another reason why I did away with my old blog – I’ve outgrown Red Pill Game.
Now in the beginning, when I started blogging, RPG was entirely appropriate. But not anymore.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-Red Pill now. And I’m not gonna go Purple Pill or anything gay like that.
I’ll always be grateful for learning Red Pill philosophy. It’s expanded my mind and helped me see the world more clearly.
The Red Pill isn’t a be-all and end-all. At least not for me.
So it was appropriate to move on from Red Pill Game.
My life has changed. My blog should evolve, too.
What’s different now?
Here’s a quick recap:
- I quit my corporate bank job
- Started making money online
- Sold my house
- Got rid of most of my stuff
- Now everything I own fits into two bags
- I left the United States, indefinitely
- I moved to Medellin, Colombia
- That’s just the first stop though; I have no idea which lands I’ll travel to next
- I’m dating a 20-year-old
- And I’m in the best shape of my life
All at the age of 37 – well past the point where society says you’re ‘supposed’ to make big life changes.
And so it makes sense to carry that evolution over to my blog.
I felt constricted with my old site. Trapped. Like I could only write about very specific subject matter…
I mean, if you have a blog called Red Pill Game, it makes sense to always write about game!
But there’s more to life than that…
Yeah I’d write about other things, sometimes. But it felt ‘off.’
Those posts did well but they didn’t really match the overall theme. Now with the new brand, I’ll have more flexibility to write about different topics.
But don’t worry!
I’ll still be writing about old familiar subjects like:
But I’m also gonna write more about things like:
Of course this list isn’t set in stone, things may change as the blog evolves.
2016 and Beyond…
I learned something during my time away.
I miss blogging.
Yes running a blog can be hard as hell. And I’ll admit that I hate it sometimes. But blogging is also highly addictive; watching it grow is hugely satisfying!
So I can’t quit. I’m in too deep. Been doing this too long to stop now. So I’ve chosen evolution instead.
And I’m excited to bring you along on this journey with me.
