I'm actually kind of surprised by the lack of self promotion going on here, but I do see a lot of links to cool stuff in people signatures, so I thought we might as well have a separate place where everyone can pimp their own projects without disrupting the other threads. Apologies if one of these already exists.
At the moment, my sig links to my blog, where I rant about my current experiences with games. Not as original as I'd like to think but it keeps me writing. I was going to write a series of essays on different things and launch a site devoted to them, but I haven't been able to pin down the format.
Blaugh! is my personal blog, also posted in by my older brother on the rare occasions when he can actually think of something to post. I talk about life and games, but I also have two recurring columns (The Weasel Ideal and Morbid Curiosity) that discuss what games could be, and what games should not be, respectively.
Doom Armory is my Doom site, where I discuss weapon mods. I haven't updated it properly in a while, but all of my Doom weapon mods are there, and I highly recommend checking out the Weasel's Mods section if you like some extra spicy kick to your Doom.

Now that I've been "fired" from the deceased corpse website I was "helping" with and was going to staff, I've decided that any non-personal projects I take on are to be closely examined.
tl;dr: Diary of Silver Lynxes is back. Here's an excerpt from the latest post:
Long story short: I find FFTA2 very awesome. Go play it if you have an open mind for SRPGs and the like. Shut up and go play some crappy Halo 3, Barbie Horse Adventures, or Custer's Revenge if you don't.
I used to have a review site, but my brothers friend who owned it took it down and didn't even give me all the reviews or even ask me what I thought. I believe to this day that I could've taken care of it myself.
My book about "growing up gaming". Also contains stories from sotenga. Bought a copy yet? If not, it's only $14.99 + shipping... how about buying a copy and helping me out a bit, eh? I could tell you that it's an entertaining read, but maybe you should ask those here that have copies, like Kurt.
Also, I run West Mansion: The Splatterhouse Homepage and the OPCFG will be returning soon. But I'm sure you all already know that.

I started writing about games when I first discovered this site out of boredom, and because I couldn't work at the time. Surprisingly, I ended up liking it more than I thought I would, and it became one of my hobbies. Nowadays my signature image will take you to a place that shamelessly imitates HG101 in more than one way, but with a heavier emphasis on trivia and history, which is what I'm really interested in.
Edit: Hey Rob, I see you put a link to my site in yours. Let me return the favor soon...

I run RVGFANATIC... yes, I'm the only one who works on it. It's become my own personal database of reviews and remembrances... everything from SNES and Saturn reviews to random retro stuff like an episode recap of Full House, Are You Afraid of the Dark, etc. I pride myself on making RVG a unique one-of-a-kind site that's unlike any other (gaming) site out there. You can expect long ramblings, a crapload of pictures and random weirdness from a guy that's anything but normal
The original will stay here on HG101 as an archive.
Great to see the new site. I'll put it up on my LINKS next update. Good luck with it, Rob!
EDIT: Rob, when you can, can you please adjust my URL on your site from rvgfanatic.com to rvgfanatic.com/301.html ? Thanks. The latter address takes the user to the current page while the former is outdated for whatever reasons unbeknownst to me
