Keep Calm And Start Again

Its so bizarre. You can go from having nothing to say to having everything to say. You can go from drifting through life to having to pick yourself up by the scruff of the neck and ploughing through the world. Normally this tends to happen when things get a bit tricky and this time is no exception (that’s a discussion for another post).

I’m currently in that position right now. So many things have happened both in the physical world and in the digital world that I feel I need to commence the writing, but where to do that?

I have been seriously toying with the idea of making Google+ my one stop shop for all my musings, and its still not a bad little shout, however its one place to be used cautiously I feel. That just leaves this little pocket in the interweb. My old Lashings blog, and why not?

So here we go! 2015 and then I’m going to kick this place into gear. Times have changed, I’ve seen certain aspects of things that I once held in high esteem in a totally different light and vice versa. I need somewhere to let off steam, and to just drivel, so why not here?

Lashings of Liam is back, and this time it will be used!

By the way, I’m still getting comments saying that the “forcing Twitter into webpage mode doesn’t work”. Of course it doesn’t. I wrote that when I used to have my Blackberry Playbook, and despite a big disclaimer on that post, I’m still being asked. The tactic no longer works. Sorry!


Lashings Rebooted

Posted: 29/12/2013 in Blogs


It seems to be a common occurrence with me recently. Even my last blog post in October said how I would be looking to get this blog restarted. Now I finally believe that I am in a position to do so (yes really!), Satan and Steve Jobs are skating to work but Lashings of Liam is back in action.

You wont see a blog dedicated to news, you won’t find a blog dedicated to tech or gaming. What you will see is a blog with my own opinions, my reviews, my own thoughts. Most of my posts (I’d say about 95-97%) will be non-controversial but there may be the odd occasional one which people might disagree with. If you disagree then I welcome that. If you agree? I welcome that too! I’d love to hear feedback/comments  about anything that I write.

There are various ways to do this. The first one is to just leave a comment, the second one is to go to the “Contact Me” page and do, well, exactly what it says on the tin. You can always grab me via various gaming, e-mail and social media outlets (see below). Otherwise. I hope you enjoy what will be written here in the future, and look forward to hearing your thoughts in the future 🙂

For the last few months I’ve been trying to figure out how to “redefine” my blogger experience. I’m not the greatest of writers but it’s something that I enjoy doing from time to time.

A brainwave started to develop in my head a few weeks ago “why not a website focused mainly, but not exclusively on competitive gaming”. What do I mean by that? Pretty much what it says. The main focus of the website will be to focus on gaming on a competitive nature, but I won’t ignore important tech or general gaming news.

The other thing that I want to try to do over there is highlight those who might not be in the professional spotlight. I feel with any sport (especially e-sports), that without a solid semi-pro/grassroots base, then the professional scene would never be as huge as it could potentially be.

To start with it’ll be just myself posting, but if anyone ever feels like guest posting, then I will always welcome them!

So what is the future of Lashings? I’m not going to take it down, and will save it for those rare occasions when one of my rants might not fit into a gaming/tech category. 🙂

I’ve just started the ball rolling over there, but please check out and add Competitively Zerged as I hope it’ll mature into something to be proud of.

Thank you for your time 🙂


I hope you’ll give me this moment to deviate from normal blog practices.

Back in February I posted a blog about how there seems to be little done to tackle cheats in Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3. Now as you can imagine it attracted some interest (and even with Black Ops 2 out, it’s still generating some traffic). What I will say is I had to decline one comment yesterday who had a very good point and from what I read, he had every right to be annoyed.


Part 2 of my guest post on the wonderful Trollish Delver website has been made available.

Once again I’d like (once again) to thank Scott for the opportunity to write for him

The post can be found here


Today I had the honour of writing for Scott Malthouse and his website “The Trollish Delver“. It’s in two parts with the second coming up tomorrow.

The post is called – “Guest Post: Who can be counted as a casual MMO gamer? (Part 1)

I want to thank Scott for the opportunity to write for him and if you’d like to follow him on Twitter or offer your writing services to him then I’ve included his Twitter handle after the break.


Well that lasted long!

 You know when you have an idea, implement that idea, and then wonder why you had done it? Yes welcome to my world!
