I don’t do Valentine’s Day. I hate the way shops start pushing schmaltzy cards and novelty items in your face as soon as the new year arrives. The horrified expression I receive when I tell people I won’t be going on a romantic date with my other-half to mark the occasion. The pressure we’re all put under to show those closest to us how much they’re loved on that particular day, when we should make the effort to do it every single day. Urgh.
But an event that celebrates the talented writers around us and the friends made on our blogging journey? Now that’s something I can get behind. Creative Cupid Ian from Adventure Rules is very kindly hosting the Secret Valentine collaboration today, where he has played matchmaker to a group of dreamy participants. It’s now up to us to show our appreciation for the blogger we’ve been matched with and share what makes them so awesome.
So here goes…
Thank you to Ian for being our host
And giving me reason to write this here post,
Dedicated to a writer I haven’t yet met
And praising him for his creative outlet
I like video games, that much is true
But there are some well-known companies who
I just do not get or buy into the hype,
Their games aren’t usually my preferred type
Nintendo is one, I’m sorry to say
(Hopefully my confession won’t scare you away)
Although I played Mario when I was younger
I’m not all that interested, now that I’m older
I may not be reaching for my credit card yet
To purchase a Switch and more gaming assets
But reading Willtendo has kept me informed
And made me consider another platform
Ok, so that little poem wasn’t exactly Shakespeare and I need to do a lot of work on my rhyming couplets. But hopefully it’s inspired you to head over to Willtendo to check out William’swork if you haven’t met him already, and show him a little love this Valentine’s Day.
