Welcome to realgamergirl.com! Here you’ll find current news, game tips, and fun posts about gaming. Now, that you’ve braved the wilds of Google, Bing, and social media, you’re ready to accept your next quest.
Thank you for visiting. Realgamergirl.com. My real name is Shanae and I’ve played video games since I was a kid. I run another blog called warcraftlover about World of Warcraft. I’ve also written and self-published books under the following pen names: Rose S. King and Kari Summers. I’m from California.
How I Discovered Gaming
Everyone has a story on how they were introduced to gaming.
My godmother introduced me to video games. She was my Mom’s childhood best friend. As a child, I visited her house every summer break. When we weren’t geeking out over Harry Potter, I can guarantee you I was on the PlayStation 2. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have discovered my love for gaming. She allowed me to play the World of Warcraft free trial during vanilla.
My godmother already had an established guild. Her guild was composed of family, friends, and friends of friends. The small group felt like family and welcomed me with open arms. I created lasting memories with them. None of them play the game today, but I wish they knew how much of an impact they had on a then seventeen-year-old. I thought they were so cool.
How I Started Blogging
Writing Is My Passion
Writing is my passion. I’ve been writing since I was a little girl. My godmother would let me write stories on her computer. She used to buy me journals and I’d write fantasy stories within their pages. In the early 2000s, my family didn’t have a computer yet. If I didn’t write every day I don’t know what I’d be doing. Writing has also helped me with my depression and anxiety. It’s severe and most of the time I can’t leave the house.
I wanted to start a Warcraft blog because it’s a topic I talk about every day, so why not blog about it? Most fans stream on twitch or make YouTube videos. I miss being able to check out the content in different places. Mostly I’ll be blogging about current news, tips and tricks, and interesting stuff in WoW.
My first book Blessings of the Firebird’s Light was published November 14th, 2017. Many people ask why I chose to self-publish instead of traditionally publish. Well, I did seek out a literary agent for months, and I had no luck. I was tired of waiting for someone else to tell me if my dreams were valid and if my work was worthy. So, I took the plunge and published my book on Amazon. It’s been an interesting journey. No one can prepare you for how much work it takes to advertise a novel. When I wrote Blessings, it was because I wanted to write a high-fantasy story with Christian themes. The book is geared toward young adults and follows the protagonists on a journey of self-discovery as they search for the Firebird. If you aren’t aware, the Firebird is from a Russian fairy tale. I thought it was super cool and I wanted to incorporate the quest in my book.
