Default Video game journalism?

First of all, I saw the other thread and didn't want to steal his thread to ask this. My theory is basically the same I didn't do too well in school.
English: D
Maths: C
Science: B

But I have always had a possion for gaming and writing about games in general. I can write articles which are pleasing to read, I am sure of it :P.
Could some of you express views about what I want to do and possibly how I go about doing it?

Thankyou
David

I will ask you this, do YOU want to write about games for a living? Is there any shred of doubt about this? It isn't about what you can do but what you WANT to do.

In which case, the same advice applies as said in the other thread: http://www.gamecareerguide.com/forum...read.php?t=591

If you're interested in getting into game journalism I would recommend what pedigreechump6 said. Start up your own blog and start writing now. That's how IGN started out in 1994-1996. They bought n64.com and started writing reviews, news and other various things ( see archive.org www.n64.com for this year range for examples of what they did back then ) You just have to do it. Don't hesitate.
