I’ve decided to take up the 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge by Saga of Spellbound to commemorate my 3 month anniversary at the end of January. I also figured it would be a good way to get the writing juices flowing and generate some content between the usual gold making posts. On with the show!
I originally started dipping my toes into the blogging world with two guest posts in June as I had a few ideas rattling around my head I wanted to get down, but didn’t feel any of the forums I frequented would be a good venue for the posts. I got a very good response to the articles, and though I didn’t really have anything else to write about at the time I made a mental note to do some writing again.
Later that year with anticipation building around Mists of Pandaria I found myself contemplating on a few topics with again no place to put them, the two sites I used before had fallen by the way side so I was stuck. I wanted to get these new posts published, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to commit to running my own blog. In the end I caved, hell, I already had my own domain sitting idle, wouldn’t exactly cost me anything would it? So after some tinkering with the site (I originally tried with Joomla for a day or two, before Kathroman convinced me to switch to WordPress) I finally got the blog rolling, and I can say there have been no regrets so far.
One of the reasons I continue to blog is that I enjoy getting many of these ideas and thoughts down in a “hard copy” if you will. I tend to do a lot of talking, and so expressing myself in blog format is actually quite refreshing, and I’ve realized I enjoy hearing (or in this case reading) myself talk (write). I also love the feeling I get when I know people are reading what I write, when people comment on one of my posts, or when someone says they enjoy reading my blog.
I discovered how awesome the WoW blogging and WoW gold making communities are, and I’m proud and honoured to be a part of them, and it’s the community that really makes this so enjoyable and worthwhile for me!
