Hi there! I’m Lauren, a twenty-something gamer and writer hailing from the West of Scotland. Writing has always been a passion of mine, which transformed into blogging in 2010 when I began my first online blog about my academic year abroad in Poitiers, France. Whilst it was mostly a bit of a rant and ramble at everyday French life, it was my own corner of the internet where I could write about my hopes and fears, provide some first-hand advice on moving abroad as a student, alongside some silly anecdotes and random encounters. GameNora was created in the hope of broadening horizons, sharing ideas and connecting with people over shared and individual passions (games being my forte.)
Whilst gaming has brought me endless hours of joy over the years, I could never quite find the confidence to put pen to paper about the games I love. The video game journalism industry has exploded with new talent in recent years and I found the prospect of adding my two cents understandably daunting. Luckily, I landed the role of Guide Writer at VG247, and the rest is history.
What can I expect from GameNora?
Over the last year, my blog has become more video game orientated, which is hopefully why you’re here. The aim of GameNora is to showcase the variety of platforms, genres and purposes of games, with some reviews on the side and the occasional political comment. And, of course, The Witcher 3.
