Here's one quick notice for blog readers out there who are interested in watching video game content. The link above will take you to the YouTube channel of Novaura Autism, a channel that is run by a passionate gamer who has been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. A snip-it of the message Matthew Griffin sent me will be posted below.
If you guys would like to check out a special Let's Play project that spans over the course of the New year of 2016, then please check out Novaura Autism. I happen to have a passion for video games, as you would see when you read my other blog called the Gaming Journalist Gazette (http://gamingjournalistgazette.blogspot.com/), and I clearly enjoy watching Let's Play content, so beginning January 1, 2016 you guys can have an entertainment outlet to use.
Also, please read the message that Matthew sent me below. He has his own unique story to tell regarding his condition and what he intends to do with his gaming content.
[From Matthew Griffin]
I am writing to you after hearing about your blog through the StephenVlog YouTube channel and I always appreciate hearing about people like myself who seek to bring awareness through various media. Like you, I have Aspergers and was diagnosed over 20 years ago. Since finding out about my own diagnosis, I have wanted to demonstrate our ability to persevere even though I have Autism.
This has included being involved with 2 different volunteer groups over the years. One of which, I have been involved with for over 15 years and recently completed a 4-year term as the president of my local chapter and have been dealing in promoting youth oriented activities centered around sports, writing and art. The second I have been with for about 4 years. I have done some motivational speaking for this group as well as serving as a mentor for a program that seeks to support young people of both physical and mental afflictions.
The most memorable experience I have had as a volunteer however, was in 2010 where I worked at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada at the Cross Country Skiing/Ski Jumping venue performing tasks as a bus conductor to put it in layman's terms.
Aside from my volunteer work, I like Stephen Georg, have my own YouTube gaming channel. I started in 2012 with the goal of being an Autistic gamer who can show perseverance and enjoy the games I have played. It is called Novaura Autism and I am currently playing Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward and EarthBound and I am preparing for a major Let's Play project which will encompass all of 2016 which will be known as "#Elite6" and will feature 6 games which are celebrating milestones in 2016 and will cover multiple generations.
I would certainly encourage your support and invite those who visit your blog to come and support me as well. I wish you the best of luck and continued success with your blog and that it will serve its purpose as much as my YouTube channel seeks to do the same.
